A rug that will be in a high traffic area like a hallway or entry should use a thin, non slip pad. These pads typically are made of a rubber-like material and have a weave look to them. These grip hard surface floors very well, keeping your rug in place. You want a thin pad to prevent too much of a height difference to avoid any trip hazards and create a natural flow when walking. If you are putting it under a rug in a living room that will be creating more cushion and sound absorption, then you will want to use a thicker pad, possibly one made from a felt material. You can even find pads that are meant for use with outdoor area rugs which usually come mildew resistant. If you are using a rug to carpet application you will want to buy a pad that is made specifically for that.

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.

Reorganized Furniture: Temperatures are dipping and it is a great idea to group your furniture into cozy conversation areas, preferably near the fireplace.

Warm Scents: It's a great idea to use slightly darker more opaque hues of upholstery during fall as it will make your home feel cozy and warm.

The bench seat acts as a lid to the toy box so your son or daughter can open it and get at the toys or other items that are inside. There are revolving bookcases that can be placed in the corner of the room because they can be turned round to get to the books that aren't quite in reach. Entertainment centers are ideal for the tech loving kids (which kids aren't nowadays?). Pretty much anything that needs to be stored can have its own specific place to live until next needed.
