Even though Jarapa rugs tend to have a fairly good grip on floors, they can be easily secured on any smooth surfaces such as tiled, wooden or laminated floors with anti-slip products such as rug underlay, double sided tapes or rug anti-slip spray. Using an anti-slip underlay will also add thermal insulation, pile protection and extra cushioned softness. Top tips: the rug underlay needs to be smaller than your rug size so it doesn’t show (by 10 to 20 cm).
