Okay guys, today I'm going to talk about a not-so-glamorous decor tip that I think is worth mentioning, and that's the importance of a good quality underpad for your rug.You all know about my love for my gorgeous hand-woven rug which I scored from an estate sale:
Well, the only problem that I was running into with it was keeping it in place. Most high-quality rugs have no added backing, meaning that there is no rubber grip to keep them in place, and this can result in sliding and bunching around furniture. This is not a great look, and good design is in the details.
When my friends over at Rug Pad USA offered to send me one of their premium-lock rug pads to try, I was thrilled! Unlike many rug pads available on the market today, Rug Pad USA offers rugs pads that are made in the US, and use natural rubber rather than synthetic rubber as well as 100% recycled felt. I'm all about sustainable design whenever possible. They also can cut it down to your custom size. I also learned that using a rug pad protects your floors from discoloration.Since laying the rug pad down, my rug stays put and it is way more cushy and comfortable underfoot. I couldn't be happier! Thanks Rug Pad USA!
