Hard wood and even marble floors, although a plus in home design, tend to be slippery and can cause mishaps. With infants crawling and kids running around, it is not far from reality that something might spill or a small toy might be dropped or left behind. And so, it is also highly possible that somebody might accidentally slip and get hurt especially in areas with high foot traffic and daily indoor activity. Safety-wise, this is where area rugs come in. Area rugs are good additions to hard wood and marble floors. Although they tend to shift and slide because of their temporary-installed nature, using a rug pad or even an anti-slip spray to prevent it from moving from one place to another will surely decrease impact of accidental falls. This also prevents unwanted sliding or shifting of furniture such as dining tables and sofas.
Your rug pads help to soften sound and provide a buffer under your area carpet, as well as helping to prevent them from moving around. When your carpet slides around on the floor it is a serious safety hazard for the young and old alike; pads help prevent slippage. Moreover, rugs that move around and are not aligned with the floor and walls give the room a very shabby look and all your expensive décor can be ruined by an out of place mat. Here again pads are invaluable in helping to keep the rug in place. These pads help to extend the life of an area rug as well as protect carpets and floors. One of the main purposes of these pads is to preserve and protect the carpet.
Area rugs come in so many different and unique styles it's sometimes hard to decide which type would best suit your needs. You may have an idea in mind as to which type of rug you'd like to purchase. Or you may need more detailed information to make the right choice. Some styles are named after the region or area where they originated. Others are known for certain characteristics or specific uses. Let's look at three different styles that hopefully will help you make an informed decision when shopping for a special rug.
