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.
Persian area rugs are admired far and wide for their intricate design and deeply hued colors. Originally crafted for the use of wandering tribes, they provided instant flooring over the sand floors of tents. These types of rugs are made in the Middle Eastern areas of Persia in modern day Iraq, Iran, and Turkey. They are well known for their typically ornate, deeply pigmented patterns. Persian rugs are produced both in hand-knotted and machine woven methods. The hand-knotted types have been known to last for over one hundred years.
Although the rug is what you see on the surface, there is much more that goes into the actual installation process. As you can imagine, a rug is not simply laid on top of the concrete or wood that is already in place. While this could be done, it is not something that you want to do if you want the job completed the right way. When it comes down to it, the rug pad that is used is just as important as what you see on the surface. If the correct rug pad is used, you will recognize this in a number of different ways. Of course, if the rug pad is left out, or a low quality option is used, you are going to notice this as well; just not in the same way.
