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.

Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.

Choose mirrors that are wavy, long and thin, diamond shaped or triangular. Instead of one or two large mirrors, create a mosaic of mirrors by using several smaller mirrors placed together. Look for different glass styles. Instead of a smooth mirror, hang a mirror with beveled edges. Another option is to use frosted mirrors. Hang a mix of framed and unframed mirrors.

When light in the room reflects on the coated side and into the dark space behind the mirror, you are able to see the lighted room but you can't see out of it.

An example of a custom wall mirror is a framed sectional mirror. There is a vanity mirror with a carved wood frame that actually holds 3 separate mirrors. There are 2 arched mirrors on each side, with a rectangle mirror in the center of the frame. Let me tell you this piece of wall mirror woodwork is absolutely gorgeous! Another simpler example of a custom wall mirror would be a triangular shaped mirror.
