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.
I hear many people tell me that their pad stuck to their floor and it cost them a lot of money to re-finish the floor. The type of pad that does this is an open weave waffle looking pad. It may look and feel like rubber but it actually is a plastic or nylon pad that has a chemical spray applied to it. This chemical is what transfers to the floor and leaves an imprint of the rug pad right on the floor. Real rubber does not harm the floor and a felt and natural rubber carpet pad will prevent slipping and protect the floor.
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.
