Hard wood and even marble floors, although a plus in home design, tend to be slippery and can cause mishaps. With infants crawling and kids running around, it is not far from reality that something might spill or a small toy might be dropped or left behind. And so, it is also highly possible that somebody might accidentally slip and get hurt especially in areas with high foot traffic and daily indoor activity. Safety-wise, this is where area rugs come in. Area rugs are good additions to hard wood and marble floors. Although they tend to shift and slide because of their temporary-installed nature, using a rug pad or even an anti-slip spray to prevent it from moving from one place to another will surely decrease impact of accidental falls. This also prevents unwanted sliding or shifting of furniture such as dining tables and sofas.

Nevertheless, a good rule of thumb is to allow the front legs of chairs and sofas to be placed on the rug.

We can have candle holders in the house or on the patio for the scent's of fall. Try putting flowering plants in pots or planters on the patio or the side of walkways for adding color. You can also cut the flowers and bring them in the house and display them in vases for adding color and aroma to any room. Finding different color leaves and arranging them in a basket would look nice as a centerpiece on the dining room table. The best way to arrange the leaves would be by color and size like you do for flowers. Another idea for the basket would be to use different types, sizes and colors of gourds arranged in the basket with some leaves for accent. If you have fir trees nearby you may be able to find some pine cones to use in your ideas.

Although the rug is what you see on the surface, there is much more that goes into the actual installation process. As you can imagine, a rug is not simply laid on top of the concrete or wood that is already in place. While this could be done, it is not something that you want to do if you want the job completed the right way. When it comes down to it, the rug pad that is used is just as important as what you see on the surface. If the correct rug pad is used, you will recognize this in a number of different ways. Of course, if the rug pad is left out, or a low quality option is used, you are going to notice this as well; just not in the same way.
