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.
Another important function of a rug pad is to find one that will work on top of carpet flooring. Putting a rug on top of carpet is very common. But rugs tend to move and buckle a lot when over carpet. We looked at all of the rug pad types and found the best rug pad for using over carpet is the rubber backed felt rug pads. The installation needs to be the reversed from when using with hard surface flooring. To properly install over carpet, put the felt side to the carpet and rubber side of the pad against the rug. It is amazing how effective this product is for using over carpet.
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.
