There are several different kinds of rug pads for different types of floors and floor covering like thick rugs and oriental rugs for any type of flooring, cushions and carpet liners for hardwood, bamboo and ceramic tile floors, non-skid for organic hard floors and pads for outdoor patio, porch or deck floors among others.
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.
When you walk on your antique rug, it encounters a lot of stress against the hard floor. The back of the rug, or the knots, as well as the foundation, need to be protected as best as possible. There are rug pads with holes in them and solid rug pads. In this case, the solid on is best. Moving a step ahead, a solid pad with some sort of texture on the surface is even better. This texture can safely grab your antique rug and keep it from crawling, hence reducing wear.
