Premium Lock Non slip padThrow rugs are a great way to add a little bit of style to a bare linoleum or tile floor and area rugs can add warmth and tone to any home.

Placed next to a door they will help keep the floors clean.   You can find everything from a tight weave welcome mat to the most luxurious of Persian rugs. One thing you have to look out for though is those rugs slipping out from under you when you step on them. That’s why it’s so important to stop your rug from sliding on the floor.

If you’re shopping for a throw rug then one solution is to find one with a rubber backing similar to what you would find on a bath mat. This will keep the rug firmly in place.

If you already have a favorite rug but want to keep it fixed firmly to the floor then you can always try sewing a piece of non skid to the underside of the rug.  All you need to do is pick a thread that matches the rug color and throw a couple stitches to it.

If you don’t want to sew in a piece of non skid padding you can always apply a little bit of rubber cement to the underside of the rug. Let it dry and then put the rug back down on the floor. Be sure to use the glue sparingly so it doesn’t soak through to the visible side of the rug.

Also available to you is the Premium Lock Rug Pad for hard wood floor surfaces. This places a piece of padding between the floor and rug.  Place it in the desired location and then put the rug on top of it.
