Rugs can protect your floors. They can protect you from slipping on a slick surface. But they should also be able to keep you from slipping when you step onto a rug.
PlushRugs generally recommends that you use a rug pad between the floor and the rug. Rug pads provide cushioning for a softer feel when you walk over the rug. The right rug pad can keep any rug from sliding across the floor.
But sometimes a rug purchaser just wants a simple rug with a slip-resistant backing. These rugs are generally low in pile; they are closer to the floor level than a higher pile rug sitting on top of a rug pad.
Non-skid backings are mainly made of latex. In recent years, consumers have grown averse to latex-backed rugs, which are applied with glue. Consequently, the variety and availability of this type of rug have diminished. Generally, you can find non-slip rugs in kitchen and bath sections at local home stores, but there are a few manufacturers that still make these non-skid-backed rugs in area-rug size.
Most larger rugs at PlushRugs come with a free rug pad, but not all companies offer this. So rug pads are an added and often unwanted expense to people on a budget. To get the most of a rug, there are some consumers that still want stylish, latex backed rugs. PlushRugs features rugs from a variety of collections with non-slip backings.
