For rugs that do not tend to slip, a 100% felt jute pad is excellent. This is dense enough to protect the floor from scratches and indentations. Make sure that the felt rug pad is a 40 ounce, referring to the amount of fiber there is per square yard of pad. The higher the ounce, the more dense the carpet pad. If the rug tends to slip, then a felt and natural rubber rug pad is ideal. Here, the key is to make sure it is natural rubber as opposed to the chemical sprays that look and feel like rubber but actually could severely harm the floor.
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.
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.
