I'm a fan of Maples Rugs. US company, great colors and designs. I love that they are rubber backed. I dont need or want thick plush heavy carpeting everywhere. I actually prefer a thin rug, but that comes at the cost of needing a separate backer to keep them in place. I had stumbled upon a Maples Rug several years ago that was large enough to use as an area rug and had good rubber backing. I loved it, and I still have it, but recently I retired it as my mood for something else came up (now I use it outside). I didnt replace it with another Maples, if only because I didnt see the color/pattern I wanted. But I imagine at some point I will. Then there are other areas of the house where I have smaller Maples Rugs- in front of doors, etc. I have probably 6 rugs of assorted sizes from this brand. I just like it, a lot.
Yes, they are thin, light, but that rubber backing is where it is at for me. If you need thick, plush, then seek elsewhere. I totally understand. These may not be for everyone because of the lightweight factor. On the plus side, no matter the size, they fold up or roll up easily for storage.
When I decided to get a new little rug for my step dad, I immediately set out to look at Maples Rugs. He had a rubber backed rug that was falling apart and no longer had any grip on his ceramic floor. I bought this as a Christmas gift and he began using it immediately. I can toe it a little and it moves, so not sure if it is a matter of the rubber not being as grippy as my others, or it is simply the flooring that it is on. He has it in a cold spot of the house on a slick ceramic floor. Basically in a breezeway between kitchen and heading out to the garage. But it does slide around, and is way better than what he had.
One note on vacuuming. I find that using the non beater bar option (like a floor option) is better than the carpet option. These are short knap, and the beater bar could eventually pull up on the fibers. Best to shake out the rugs and then vacuum floor, or just gently go over the rug itself. Can be washed in washer no problem.
I like to change the look in my family room for the Fall and Winter months. The previous rug is really nice for the summer with all the pastel and soft colors. Take away the bright slip covers and the rug does not really seem to go well so I saw this pattern. We have the blues and yellows and greys. The furniture is brown and grey. This pattern makes the room warm and inviting. The non slip back is great and it rolled out perfectly flat once taken out of the package. It is a low pile. The only negative is that it really is quite thin. I hope it wears well but then again, I will only have it out from September - April. If you just want a nice accent rug then this is a good buy.
I love that these rugs come in so many sizes. I ordered a runner for my back porch/mud room. It opens onto a patio and gets a lot of traffic, including two dogs one of which practically lives on the porch. It's been down a month or so now and is very serviceable. I just ordered another for front entrance. They stay in place, catch a lot of grit and clean up nicely. I wish they came in more patterns or maybe some solid colors.
Really happy with this purchase. We put it by our back sliding glass door as a entry rug and it's great. We have pets, so there have been some stains, seems to be a good color and material to resist stains. It's on carpet, but we purchased another for our front room which we place on hard wood floors. We purchased some sticky rug-keep-in-place for the corners and it's been great.
