The rise in popularity of laminate floors and polished floorboards has led to increased sales of rugs.
Beautiful, affordable and easy to keep clean, rugs are very much a part of the modern home. There is one problem that is prevalent with rugs on smooth floors – they have a tendency to creep, to move beyond the position they are placed. There are some great ways of stopping them from doing so, and we have the best listed here.
There are special under-mats that feature material that holds the rug in place, and they are cheap to buy. They go under the rug itself and are very efficient at holding the rigs in place. These come in many different types, and you can find them at many hardware stores as well as online.
Many people use standard double sided tape to secure rugs, and this can be a very cheap way of affixing some smaller rugs to the flooring. It pays to consider the specialist versions if you are looking to secure bigger rugs, because the weight of the large rug may over-ride the power of the tape.
Rugs can be secured very easily and your supplier will be able to recommend the best solution for the type of rug that you are buying, and there are also many websites that offer you excellent advice on the methods of securing rugs to the floor. Cheap, simple and attractive, rugs are great additions to any home.
