In this video Erica Lugbill, owner of Lugbill Designs, a Chicago-based residential remodelling and interior design firm, gives tips on how to keep rugs from slipping on the floor.
Some rugs come with a rubber non-skid backing on that keep them in place, but others don’t. This means having a difficult time to keep them from slipping on the floor.
But while it seems like a problem, there are actually several options that you can try to keep rugs from slipping.
Add a layer underneath your rug
What Erica Lugbill personally uses is a felt rug pad with rubber backing to layer underneath your rug. It is nice, thick and plush option. Not only can it keep your rugs in place, it also adds luxury to the height of the rug, so it is softer when you step on it.
Use a carpet tape
Another option is to use a carpet tape, but you have to be careful when using it. It is only advisable to use if your wooden floor has a very strong finish or if you have a laminate flooring. Simply put a double sided carpet tape on the floor, peel off the top and securely put down your rug.
Rugs that don’t stay in place are safety hazards. Much more, they can ruin the orderliness in your home and prevent you from achieving a flaw-free interior. However with several techniques to try, you can easily keep rugs from slipping on the floor just fine.
