Area rugs come in so many different and unique styles it's sometimes hard to decide which type would best suit your needs. You may have an idea in mind as to which type of rug you'd like to purchase. Or you may need more detailed information to make the right choice. Some styles are named after the region or area where they originated. Others are known for certain characteristics or specific uses. Let's look at three different styles that hopefully will help you make an informed decision when shopping for a special rug.
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.
When a rug is walked on, there is pressure to push through the rug and hit the floor. A quality rug pad will act as a barrier between the carpet and the floor to prevent any scratching from the back of the rug to the floor. Therefore, the carpet pad should be solid as opposed to one with holes in it. The more solid and dense the pad, the better the protection to the hardwood floor.
