For finding pads that do not harm floors, in our experience with the pad industry, the domestically made rubber backed products to include the open mesh and felt products seem to perform best for not harming floors. The felt products without rubber backing are also functional for not harming floors.. The pads that seem to cause the most problems are the PVC products from China. For the most part, we feel, these products will not harm floors. But there have been circumstances we have heard about where they have been blamed for causing harm. In speaking with industry experts about coating PVC, we know that coating PVC is a very delicate process and must be controlled to the exact specifications each time. The curing oven must be set to the proper curing temperatures. The coating speed must be exact every time. The PVC coating compound must be made to the exact same specification each time. Any variance in controlling the coating specifications could cause the PVC coated pad to be too tacky or too dry. Being too tacky is the biggest issue with harming floors as it could stick to the flooring and then there is an issue with how to remove it without harming the floors.
Regardless of the shape of a room, you will likely find an appropriate area rug. Even a long, narrow room can benefit from a rectangular rug. Indeed, the shape of your rug will depend on the furniture in the room just as much as the shape and size of the room. For example, a long dining room table is complimented nicely by a rectangular rug, regardless of the shape of the room. Also, don't be afraid to use your creativity when choosing rugs which are available in a wide range of shapes from circular, oval, square and rectangular to more abstract shapes.
Adding area rugs is a great way to personalize a room, whether at home or in the office. Not only do they add shade and creative design to a room, they also enhance a room's mood and character. But besides its normal purpose as a floor covering, although rarely happening, a few people use area rugs as a wall décor instead of paintings. This is possible of course because of the wide range of designs, colors, shapes and sizes to choose from. Provided that you are an adventurous person and willing to try something new, you can frame it up and hang it to accentuate the other walls.
