If you are placing a rug in your Family Room Great Room or any large area using one large area rug might just be what you might need. The only alternative is if in a very large room you might have several distinct seating areas. In this type of decorating you would use several smaller rugs to tie in your area.

Gripping pads are popular for many reasons. They are very thin and give no additional cushioning to the area rug. The rug should be very dense to make up for this type of pad. The pad has a waffle pattern with lots of holes. The surface of this pad has a lot of grip and will keep area rugs in place. In low traffic areas this pad is very useful for a thin silk or similar area rug since a thicker pad would cause the rug to move around and present a tripping hazard as well as not allow the thin rug to lie properly on the hardwood floor.
