Growing up, carpet was king in most homes. My home, and most of my friends’ were covered in wall to wall carpeting. Now, that isn’t the case. I think most people prefer wood floors with area rugs. I know that for me, not having hardwood floors were a deal breaker when looking for homes. We needed a house that primarily had wood floors because I have such bad allergies and asthma and carpet just harbors those allergens, despite lots of vacuuming.
One of the first things I fell in love with when walking in this home for the first time was the floors. They are original to the house and are stained a very warm oak color. We plan to refinish them one day due to some fading, but for now, we really love them! To warm up the spaces, I have been purchasing area rugs for each space. Most of our rugs are from HomeGoods and span from bargain to higher priced. Even bargain rugs though aren’t so cheap, so it is essential to do everything you can to make these last.
Two of our rugs are thinner rugs without padding underneath, and while I love the patterns on them, I hated that they were always sliding all over the place. It drove me crazy having to straighten them constantly, so I was thrilled when Rug Pad Corner contacted me to try their eco-friendly rug pads, and I jumped on the chance.
Let me tell you…I love these rug pads. They have added great cushion to our two padding-less rugs and they don’t slide anymore! The pads shipped incredibly quick and they sent me pads specific to the type of flooring I have, which is great. The quality seems to be really fantastic and I can’t wait to see how they hold up.
An added bonus that I didn’t expect was that my rugs now look more expensive! The thicker padding makes them look much higher quality! I am seriously obsessed with these pads now. I do a happy dance every time I step onto one of these rugs because they are so cushy and look so great! I have tried those non slip pads that they sell in stores and they looks so wimpy compared to these. You can see how substantial they are!
Rug Pad Corner has many different types of pads so please check out their selection here!
