Area rugs are a decorative and practical addition that can transform any room. Rugs may be used to distinguish rooms in an open floor plan, to add flair to a dull space, or even to protect expensive hardwood from regular wear and tear. Regardless of the reason for decorating with area rugs, these tips and tricks will help you choose the right rug for any room.
Antique rugs generally are more fragile than newer rugs, yet they are usually more valuable. In order to maintain your investment, you should follow proper care such as the right cleaning, rotation once a year and the right rug pad. Not all rug pads will protect your antique rug and carpet as best as possible.
Makes your rug safer to walk on: The right pad will prevent slipping. If you choose one that has a grip to it, it makes the rug much safer to walk on. You certainly do not want anyone slipping on an arearug and taking a fall. Slippery floors such as linoleum and hardwoods can create a real fall hazard when an area rug is put on them with no pad to grip the floor.
