  1. What should you look for in:
    1.) type of accent rug to place down on a hardwood floor,i.e., foam backing, rubber backing, cotton fiber, etc.
    2.) type of recommended padding to use under a accent rug that is on a hardwood floor, i.e., rubber, foam, felt, etc.

      Hi Al,

      Thank you for your inquiry! Any accent rug should be fine on hardwood as long as you use an underpad. This will help protect your floor as well as stop the rug from slipping. Usually the rubber or foam pads are best for slipping because the felt doesn’t have as much grip. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
