This is because the rug is constantly being rubbed and crushed against the floor when anyone walks on it. A rug pad will cushion the rug and keep it looking good for a lot longer than just having the rug on the floor. You don't want your new rug to age prematurely.

For one, it should hold the rug in place on the floor. Two, it should provide a cushioned support. Third, it should protect the floor from harm. There are many different types of pads in the marketplace today. But finding one that can provide all 3 of the main functions we describe can be a challenge. Most rug pads satisfy the function of keeping the rug in place and not slipping. There are thin and thick open mesh types of pads that are made in China and coated with PVC (polyvinyl chloride) that do a great job of keeping rugs from moving on the floor. This same type of product can be found domestically where it is coated with a natural rubber vs PVC. This product does an effective job of keeping the rug from moving as well. Other products that provide good non-slip properties include the felt rug pads that are coated with a natural rubber. So for satisfying this non-slip function in a rug pad, there are many options to choose from depending on your budget.

For finding a rug pad that provides cushioned support, we need to look at thicker pad products that are available. There are thicker open mesh PVC products from China that provide some cushion support. But there is a limit to how thick these products can be due to the way they are made. The core material that is coated with the PVC is a polyester yarn that is knitted into a wide continuous roll. The roll is then fed into a big oven where it is dipped into the PVC material and allowed to cure in an oven. When PVC cures, it expands and has the texture of a sponge thus giving it good gripping properties. But the overall thickness of this pad is controlled by making the knitted material differently so that it can absorb more of the PVC when coated. So the polyester material is a limiting factor to how thick the PVC mesh can be. 1/8" is the approximate maximum thickness we found for this product. Another product that provides cushion support is the rubber backed felt rug pads that are approximately 1/4" thick. We also found felt pads that are approximately 1/2" thick with no rubber backing that provide exceptional cushion support properties. The felt pad types are made with recycled carpet yarns and are fed into a needlepunch machine that creates a specified thickness, 12' wide felt material which is very dense and durable.

The view out of your windows changes with the season, so couldn't your window treatments change, too? If you have curtain panels consider changing them to a more seasonal color, whether retail or custom. You may also want to consider thermal panels that can help keep the cold out as the temperature drops. If you have blinds or roman shades you can do the same thing-update them with warmer, fall colors, or in either case, update an existing valance on your windows.

When using a group of mirrors, concentrate on choosing interesting frames in a variety of shapes and sizes. To create a cohesive grouping, you may want to consider using mirrors with the same or similarly colored frames. To arrange a group, hang the largest mirror first, and then add a smaller one of similar shape. Finish with yet another small mirror in a different shape. Space them all evenly on the wall.

Persian rugs are produced both in hand-knotted and machine woven methods. The hand-knotted types have been known to last for over one hundred years.
