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.
When you walk on your antique rug, it encounters a lot of stress against the hard floor. The back of the rug, or the knots, as well as the foundation, need to be protected as best as possible. There are rug pads with holes in them and solid rug pads. In this case, the solid on is best. Moving a step ahead, a solid pad with some sort of texture on the surface is even better. This texture can safely grab your antique rug and keep it from crawling, hence reducing wear.
Oriental area rugs can include Persian ones and were originally made in China. Now they can come from rug-makers in India, Iran, and Romania as well. Since these areas have low labor costs this style of rug is of a great quality at an equally great value. They are resilient and durable and will add a sense of luxury to any area. They can be hand-knotted, hand woven, or hand loomed. They can also be more affordable when they're made using a combination of both handcrafted and machine made techniques. The can be made even more affordable when they're completely machine loomed. These can be so well made that they appear as handsome as handmade rugs.
