Non-Skid Floor Rugs
If you’ve got hardwood floors decorated with area rugs, listen up. While rugs are great cushions for little knees, and are a blessing when beginning walkers lose their footing, certain types also have a tendency to slip right out from underneath the feet when those feet are running around wildly. If your area rugs aren’t already non-skid, you still have options. One is to buy a non-skid pad that can be cut to fit underneath the rug, holding it steady. Another option is to get some gripper pads, designed to stick to the rug itself at the corners and hold it in place. Finally, you can get tape that will actually hold the rug to the floor, preventing slips and falls.
