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.

The first is a recycled jute pad that is as dense as can be for its kind. This is a 40 ounce weight, which is on the higher quality level of jute pads. This weight means there is a dense compression of fiber per square yard and this is important for protection and resistance. This pad can be used under all antique rugs that do not tend to slide around, mainly room size ones.

First off, this goes a long way in making sure that your rug is durable and lasts for years on end. If your rug is simply laid on top of wood or concrete, it is going to wear quickly. And while you may not notice this early on, as time goes by, you will surely be able to tell that your rug is beginning to wear out. To avoid this, make sure that the proper rug pad is used. And if you are not the one doing the installation, you should make sure that you still know what is going on. After all, once your rug is in place there is no possible way to determine with 100 percent accuracy as to if the right pad was used. In fact, the only way that you could do this would be by lifting the entire rug; a process that you probably do not want to get involved with.

Try lining and entryway with scary masks or even hanging one on your front door. This can also be an inexpensive way to decorate, since you've probably collected a number of masks over the years. Put a mask on your scarecrow, on your garden features like statues, and even your kids' dolls. If you'll be using the masks outdoors, make sure that they are weatherproof.

Basically it's what you commonly think of as stuffing; the stuff that they put inside stuffed animals and pillows. It's pros contain that it's inexpensive and can be found almost anywhere. Those are two very important features. The one con that I can think of off the top of my head is that it's sometimes hard to get it stuffed in evenly. It's sometimes thinner in a certain place than it is in the rest of the pillow. Or several lumps and bumps throughout. But practice does make better, that's for sure. You can also control the firmness of the pillow. That's another pro. Plus, you can make the pillows in absolutely any size you want. That's just that much more control. With a form, you can only make a pillow in the sizes that they offer the form.

Any mirrors will do, even those from the local dollar store. A whole house can often be re-decorated with mirrors for under a thousand dollars. Decorating with mirrors can make a home's interior appear larger. This trick has long been used by professionals. Small homes can benefit greatly using this trick of the eye. Mirrors create the illusion of depth. Create perceived space by placing a large mirror or a row or mosaic of small mirrors on a wall. Place mirrors along opposing walls for even more depth.

Reorganized Furniture: Temperatures are dipping and it is a great idea to group your furniture into cozy conversation areas, preferably near the fireplace. You can also place a set of furniture close to windows which get maximum sunlight during the day. 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. However, you can use potpourri oil or even burn cinnamon sticks on your stove for a long, lingering fragrance in your home.
