Interesting Question - Why Rugs are Moving? 

This blog is intended to help people with the question why rugs are moving in all

directions, specially on the hard floors. Keeping your rug in place is important 

to prevent falling


There are heaps of solutions online which can eliminate moving of the rugs. 

Some solutions are from real people experience, but we do not take any 

responsibility of its. 



Here are a few options for keeping area rugs in place:, you may find 

one work for you.


1. To give a sisal or sea-grass area rug some traction, flip it over, and apply the

lines of acrylic-latex caulk in every 6 inches or so. Once dry, you can safely put down 

your rug; the rubber strips will hold it in place.


2. We scored several new oriental style rugs. The problem is that the smaller area

rugs slipped on our linoleum flooring. I solved that problem by buying an 

inexpensive roll of brown foam shelving liner and cutting it up into rectangles to 

put two under each rug at each end to anchor them. One cheap roll ($1.50) was 

enough for four area rugs.


3. I used my wife’s yoga mat. It works great and she will never find her yoga mat.


4.Rugs on hard floors stop slipping if you roll masking tape (the kind that 

vehicle painters use, which can be bought at any hardware store) at least 5 times 

around your hand and apply to each corner of the rug. The tape will not damage

any tiles or even wooden flooring.


5. To keep rugs from sliding: Instead of buying those expensive mats, you can 

use a roll of the rubber shelf liner you can buy at the dollar store.
