Slipping rugs or curling edges a problem, but you find that anti-slip mats are too conspicuous or bulky? Try ‘tethering’ rugs or mats to the floor with anti-slip rug grippers.
There are several varieties on the market. Some work using vacuum technology: you glue each one under the rug corners or edges, then apply pressure to activate the vacuum. Equally effective are self-adhesive, removable grippers that can be re-positioned time and again. No more curling, slipping or tripping.
