Hi, my name is Erica Lugbill and I'm an interior designer working for Lugbill designs in Chicago. Today, I'm going to be covering how to keep area rugs from slipping on wood floors. We all have those pesky rugs that just keep moving across the room and we keep pulling them back and have to constantly be worried about them. Some rugs are actually constructed with rubber nonskid backing on them so they take care of the problem for you. But when they're not, we have a couple of different options. Here in this home, I used just a nice thick felt rug pad and it has rubber backing. So this part keeps it from slipping and then it's also nice and thick and plush and it adds to the luxury and to the height of the rug so it's softer when you step on it, killing two birds with one stone. Another option is this carpet tape, which you have to be careful with. Only use when your wood floors have a very strong finish or a laminate flooring this works great for. It's just double sided carpet tape. And you peel the top off, cut it off, put it directly on the floor, put the rug down, and then your problem is taken care of. Thanks for watching my video today. I hope you found these tips helpful.
