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.

A quality rug pad will act as a barrier between the carpet and the floor to prevent any scratching from the back of the rug to the floor. Therefore, the carpet pad should be solid as opposed to one with holes in it. The more solid and dense the pad, the better the protection to the hardwood floor.

You need to take a slightly different approach; one that will make the child feel warm and comfortable in this room. The bedroom is like a sanctuary to most children. They spend a considerable amount of time there playing, reading and of course, sleeping. When they have friends over, this is likely where they will hang out. They might play games, listen to music and more all in this room so it is important that while decorating, you choose themes and ideas that will make the child most comfortable.

An easy and cheap thing to do is to find an old planter box, paint it black and use a stencil to paint Trick or Treat on the side. Fill the planter box with hay and pile on some pumpkins with a larger pumpkin on the bottom and then use smaller sizes on the next layers; sort of like topiary of pumpkins. For the topiary of pumpkins, I would paint the faces on them instead of carving them. You will want them to be sturdy and maybe even use a metal rod down the center to keep them together.
