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.
Ideally, your rug should be slightly smaller than the area covered by furniture. Moreover, area rugs should be large enough to set the gathering space while allowing circulation space. Depending on the designer and the space, your rug may vary significantly in size. Nevertheless, a good rule of thumb is to allow the front legs of chairs and sofas to be placed on the rug.
Tibetan area rugs originated in the mountain regions of Tibet and just across the border in Nepal. They are carefully hand crafted using Tibetan knots, traditional knots, or a combination of textile weaving methods. They are generally made of the finest natural silk fibers and the softest refined wool. This combination of fibers produces a luxuriantly soft pad with a light catching luminescent sheen to it. Artisans use numerous designs of customary plants that have symbolic meanings like bamboo fronds, forsythia branches, plum blossoms, and cypress trees.
