I hear many people tell me that their pad stuck to their floor and it cost them a lot of money to re-finish the floor. The type of pad that does this is an open weave waffle looking pad. It may look and feel like rubber but it actually is a plastic or nylon pad that has a chemical spray applied to it. This chemical is what transfers to the floor and leaves an imprint of the rug pad right on the floor. Real rubber does not harm the floor and a felt and natural rubber carpet pad will prevent slipping and protect the floor.

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.

They may be straight or these pillows may be 'C' shaped and are used for both head and neck at one end and knees at the bottom as the person almost hugs the pillow. Body pillows are popular with pregnant women. Throw pillows, also known as throw cushions are square pillows that may be used to support the body on a sofa. They may also be decorative pillows that are used simply for looks on a bed or sofa and then removed before actually using the furniture.

However, wall clocks can make great wall decor. Wall clocks can be made from a number of different mediums: wood, metal, plastic, recycled or repurposed items and so forth. Furthermore, like many other types of wall decor, wall clocks come in a number of different shapes, sizes and colors, making them extremely versatile.

For example, hanging a mirror vertically will add height to a space while hanging a mirror horizontally will fill a wall. Also, adding a round mirror to a boxy room will liven up the space. The round shape adds interest by breaking up all of the straight lines. In addition, mirrors with an arched or richly ornamented top are an elegant way to dress up a space. Traditionally this shape has been used above a mantle. Mirrors are a fabulous tool to add depth and light to a room. This makes them a great idea for smaller spaces. Mirrors will make smaller spaces feel larger by giving the room the appearance of having more depth. Light from windows and light fixtures will reflect in mirrors and bounce back into a room adding more light to the space. A mirror in a room without windows will reflect the lights and make the room appear brighter. Another great idea is to place a mirror behind anything you want to highlight when you are displaying items. Mirrors catch your eye and will therefore show off the things in front of it.

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.

The frame the mirror sits in is the key to having your mirror complement, or even define the decorating style in your room. Frames come in all materials and textures. Try a distressed wood frame for a French Country feel, a wrought iron or embossed metal for a rich Tuscan or Mediterranean look, or sleek chrome for a contemporary room.
