And not only that, because of its versatility and usefulness, an area rug can not only emphasize a room but also divide two rooms that are openly connected and seem to have the same theme. And since they don't need prior installation, they can easily be replaced when redecorating or even brought along with during a move of residence.
The next pad is one that has a non slip feature for rugs that tend to move around, mostly rugs size 6'x9' and under. This pad is a dense needle punched recycled jute surface with a natural layer of solid rubber backing. This is the pad that is textured on the surface to grab your rug and the rubber holds everything to the floor. It is 1/4 of an inch thick and extremely dense. Use this safely on all floors as long as you get one with a solid rubber and not a sprayed on latex that can harm floors.
Increasing the life of your area rug: Did you know that rugs wear out from the underside first? This is because the rug is constantly being rubbed and crushed against the floor when anyone walks on it. A rug pad will cushion the rug and keep it looking good for a lot longer than just having the rug on the floor. You don't want your new rug to age prematurely.
