How do I prevent rugs from slipping?
Livingetc knows design.
A rug sliding out of place is an annoyance at best and a safety hazard at worst. Thankfully, there are a plethora of ways to prevent this from happening.
Arguably the best method is a felt pad, which creates enough friction to hold your rug in place. These are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased anywhere you buy rugs. Some opt for a waffle pad, which has the benefit of being very thin, however do keep in mind that these tend to lose their grip overtime. Although there are many more anti-slipping techniques, another one of our favorites is rug tape, which is double-sided and works on even the most trying of surfaces, like laminate.
