Do rugs look good on carpet?

The key to layering carpet over carpet is to vary the texture. Area rugs generally work best over short-pile or looped carpet. Similarly, if you have a more plush style of carpet installed, then choosing a low-profile berber or woven rug is your best bet.

Keeping this in consideration, what do you put under a rug to keep it from sliding?

To reduce the chance of falling, make sure all rugs on a hard surface are nonslip. While you could use double stick carpet tape or a nonslip rug pad to keep them from sliding, a simpler solution is to apply a bead of 100% silicone caulking to the bottom of the rug.

How do you keep area rugs in place on carpet?

Here are a few options for keeping area rugs in place:

  1. Buy a non-slid rug pad at the store.
  2. Use a roll of rubber coated shelf liner.
  3. If you have hardwood or laminate flooring, buy a good quality, double-sided tape and stick use it to stick your rug down.
