Oriental area rugs can include Persian ones and were originally made in China.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.
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.
Once you know what kind of pad you need, you will need to know what size. The pad should be slightly less than the length and width of the area rug. You can usually buy already cut to size pads for most standard sized rugs. In some cases, however, you may find that your rug is a unique size. In that case you would want to buy a pad that is larger than your rug and custom cut it to size.
