Don’t listen to the top comments. Everyone always reverts to neutrals. Get some color, a rich yellow or another color would be amazing. At least something with some vibrance, don’t be afraid to add color to a room that’s otherwise neutral. People will give you all kinds of compliments for it.

Edit: some ideas (not necessarily to purchase these. Just links)

  1. Safavieh Monaco Collection MNC243N Vintage Bohemian Navy and Light Blue Distressed Area Rug (8' x 10')

Love what you’ve done with the place! Love the mirror above the fire place. I’d recommend this rug from amazon. The soft geometric pattern isn’t too harsh or too floral and “girly”. I find it to strike the perfect neutral.

A soft off white or grey rug to match the accent chair would be perfect.

Also a nice deep wood rectangular coffee table would looks great to tie in the wood tones of the table.

u/DekKato · 8 pointsr/DMToolkit

I have a half dozen or so boxes of tiles, as well as a bunch of the Paizo map packs. They're one of my primary map tools.

So first off, I got one of these collections of basic terrain mats. They work with the corresponding tileset really well. I use the mat as the base, then put tiles on top for detail. Anything that I don't have a mini or tile for I just draw onto the mat.

I usually set them up before the game, take a picture, then set them aside to quickly assemble when my players get to the location. If they already know whereabouts they're going, I'll leave it set up because it doesn't really give anything away like a basic town setup. I've learned the tiles pretty well at this point so I can quickly put stuff together at this point if they take a sudden left turn.

u/timsstuff · 6 pointsr/pics
u/CarpentersDream · 6 pointsr/malelivingspace

I got a rug similar to this one off of Amazon. I think the yellow and the white would look great in the room. The grey ties it back in to the rest of the room. Might be a little too loud for your tastes however.

u/Vlad_the_Homeowner · 5 pointsr/homeowners

After you get the glue out, go to Amazon and buy some of these:

Yes, they cost more than a couple dabs of hot glue, but you buy them once and forget about it.

u/toilet_paper_holder · 5 pointsr/islam

Something like this

Fits into my pocket so I can carry it around wherever. Now I have no excuse if I'm out and it's time to pray salah, but I can't make it home in time.

I would gift /u/WindWhisked this puppet set for her to use with her students because I know she makes a difference!


/u/kittehmew this because it is on my "dream" WL too and I think it is something every Star Wars fan should have :-)

u/localgyro · 4 pointsr/lifehacks

A anti-slip rug mat can help. But what really fixed it for me was a futon cover that had sewn-in straps that tied onto the futon frame -- I bought mine from the futon store.

u/PictureofPoritrin · 3 pointsr/taekwondo

As far as the puzzle mats go, the more you use, the better it gets tied together. I'm going to put down about 40 square feet of mats (if not more, having had some time to think about the configuration), and the more you've got the better it will weigh down. Not sure if these yoga folks are dropping down 10 square feet and having trouble, but if that's the case, that's where the antislip matting comes in -- and if it's 3 or 4 tiles, it certainly is not going to stay in place. I've used this type of antislip matting before, and it grips pretty well on carpet and wood. I'm hoping to avoid having buy it -- more money, you know?

This is something I was surprised to not see on your list.

u/iusedtobeinteresting · 3 pointsr/howto

These work pretty well:

My living room rug on carpet would always slip when the dogs ran around. I put that under it, and now even if I do a running start and jump on it, it won't budge.

u/SomeWaySomeHow · 3 pointsr/lifehacks

I think poopyboobies is talking about gliders which go beneath legs like drink coasters - they ease the movement of furniture, protecting the floor - they don't keep large furniture from moving You might try grippers - but any you get in the dollar store are not likely to work well

They also sell gripping rug-pads for beneath carpets; putting an area rug/carpet beneath your bed might help - they even sell some in ultra-gripping fabric.

u/annaleiia · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. I'd say the little tea snails, but I already got them. Still probably them, though.
  2. An xbox lol
  3. I honestly don't think anything on my lists would make my mom ashamed.
  4. The MONQ stress relief aromatherapy inhaler thing. Life is full of stress, man.
  5. Wampa rug because look at it.
u/Seangel-zero · 3 pointsr/SchoolIdolFestival

I always play with anti-slip mats. I'm doing fine with slide notes on sukufesu or deresute.

u/Lianad311 · 3 pointsr/Vive

I'd get any standard 4 x 6 rug that you like that fits your decor. Then you can just pick up a roll of this and it will never move an inch (unless of course you want to move it then it pulls right up).

u/Matronix · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

/u/dragonflyjen has one of these in her house. If I remember correctly, in the living room.

u/coconutwaters · 3 pointsr/videos
u/omgitsjustturtles · 3 pointsr/islam

Not exactly "mini", but I bought this travel one because I could, well, travel with it. Folds up into a pouch, fits into a pocket. Comes with a direction finder.


Total size when unfolded is 24x38 inches. It's not soft, it's very thin and more like a small tarp, but I didn't expect much for something to carry with me. Free shipping with Prime. I'm not sure about without, but I'm happy to buy and ship to you as a gift if it is much more than you're willing to spend. I have Prime, so no issue here :) Hope this helps.

u/claireballoon · 2 pointsr/daddit

Bunnies don't have pads on their feet like cats or dogs--only fluff down there on bunny paws! so there's no way for them to have any traction. They slip and slide, and it's extremely uncomfortable for them. Sometimes, they won't enter certain areas of your house (bedrooms, but also up onto furniture or even into their litterbox) if their only way to get there is through hardwood or tile floor. If there's not an adequate amount of space to run on that is carpeted, you won't ever see your bunny binky, either! And every bunny deserves to run and binky at their leisure because it's such a sign of true happiness.

This kind of rug is not only cheap but made of a texture that bunnies love to dig and claw it. It's kind of lack a scratching post for them! I have these laid out all over the area where my bunnies play, which also protects the carpet! :)

You should consider getting him a friend, too, because they are very social animals and their lives are drastically improved with a friend. Read about bonded pairs and all the sweet bunny love that comes with it!

And check out /r/rabbits for so much bunny love from house rabbits!

u/jrobharing · 2 pointsr/DnD

Easiest solution:

  1. Buy this.

  2. Buy dry-erase markers (or washable markers, depending on your preference).

  3. Use the markers to draw terrain and walls as needed.

  4. Anything extra you have is icing on the cake. Toys, miniatures, printed custom maps, pathfinder flip-mats... just slowly build your collection for the rest of your DMing career, great side hobby.

u/Pjamma34 · 2 pointsr/yoga

I'm a 6'3 and 190. I use a 80" XXW Jade Mat, which is awesome. Only thing is that they tell you not to leave it out in sunlight, so that could be an issue if you're doing it outside.

I don't know if the Manduka Pro mats are offered in any thing other than black, but another thing to think about is that black will absorb a lot of heat from the sun and could get uncomfortably hot.

As for damaging the mat, I think your main concern would be any lateral force you put on the mat. If you're pushing the mat forward, I could definitely see those rocks causing tears. I don't think you need anything too heavy-duty, just something in between the rough patio surface and the mat. What about a rug pad? I feel like it's just enough to separate the surfaces, relatively cheap and you can cut it to size.

u/HappierShibe · 2 pointsr/Vive

>Why is that, blends better with the floor?

NOPE! Black shows lint from socks and stuff real quick, and white gets really grubby since it shows any kind of dirt or particles clearly.
Thought a chess board pattern would look nice, so I got the worst of both worlds. If I could do it over I would go with solid tan.

>people complained they separated a lot as well.

People are probably being stupid and putting them directly on the floor. You should put a Rugpad underneath the mat, No flooring is going to stay put otherwise unless it runs wall to wall.

>Did you get these or these?

u/RubySapphireGarnet · 2 pointsr/January2018Bumpers

Ooh I would love a link for that!! Right now I'm think Grey crib and green chevron sheets,

I was just going to link my pinterest on it but it's gotta be secret right now lol. Would you want to PM me your email and I'll add you as a collaborator and we can do it together? :)

Not OP and not sure if this is actually the rug or not but here.

u/LoomaHome · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Cool art on the far wall!

Update your pillows and rug, and I agree with the suggestion to get a throw blanket to drape over the couch.

u/mrjwojcik · 2 pointsr/DnD

Hi, dm here - the battlemat is from the standard paizo flipmatset I think:

This set is really useful as it has green-grass, water, dungeon and market-square on it.

u/TheNonAbsolute · 2 pointsr/warhammerfantasyrpg

I actually use Paizo Flip-Mats and draw on them with Dry-erase Markers, because that is most suited to my Style of Prep and running Games.

I also use some of the Minis I have from other Games to mark the Heroes and Villains if possible, but that is not always the case. LotR Moria Orks work as Goblins, and Poxwalkers work as Zombies, but a Rivertroll, or a Halfling Scholar? No Chance portraying that with what I have here.

What I do in those Cases is just use a Die to mark the Position and Wounds of a Monster or Character, I have enough Dice in enough Colors to make that work pretty well.


Edit: me no spell gud

u/inmatarian · 2 pointsr/rpg

Oh! I see, I misinterpreted what you were looking for.

Since this is more battle-mats than dungeon maps, the generic solution that everyone does is a Chessex wet-erase Mat, but you could also try Paizo dry/wet erase flip mats. If you're not pleased with the $20 range and want even cheaper, Gaming Paper for $4, or Graph Paper Notebook for $6.

They want around $80 for it even on Amazon. I found cheaper but it was an Amazon Ad link that was a mile long and I didn't trust it much.

Hope this helps.

u/lalalalaicanthearyou · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

I'd suggest bringing some red into the space to tie in that counter top and the beautiful brick to make the space cohesive. You can do this with throws, accent pillows and rugs. I found your link through interior design and recommended this this couch possibly with a couple of these guys and some similar chairs. I really, really recommend keeping an eye on craigslist everyday if you're looking to save money and get an awesome look. I'm not sure where you're located but I just typed 'leather chair' into CL in my town, Chicago and got this sweet fucking chair for $100 I'd pair with a bold patterned rug similar to this or maybe this. Additionally this could work as a throw across the couch but I've also seem people put floor pads under blankets on carpeting and use them as rugs.

If you really like the industrial look you could add a minimalist industrial desk these are pretty inexpensive to make and are sexy as fuck, in fact I'm looking to build one myself and that link has plans included. I'd love to see something like that in your space wall under that tri-window in your first picture.

A rustic sideboard would look cool in that little notch behind the stairs you have.

Man, I wish I knew where you lived so I could craigslist some stuff for you. I'm cheap as fuck but love things to be stylish and have gotten so many awesome things for my own apartment by just being patient and checking craigslist a lot.

Anti slip mat! best thing I've ever played on and it's cheap too!
You need to get the ones for rugs, those ones are big enough.

Anti-slip mat
If you keep searching you can find em in black. Just get a big one and cut it down to 3'x3'. This is your cheapest and best bet. If you knock a ship the base lifts and goes back to where it was, zero slip.

u/ares_god_not_sign · 2 pointsr/starcitizen

I have a large mousepad that everything sits on, but you might also look into some rug gripper. Another great option is to mount them to your chair with VESA mounts.

u/saibog38 · 2 pointsr/dogs

Sounds like you've got a pretty good solution for now, but if in the future you want to try something else, have you considered just using the non-slip rug liner by itself? I used that on my tile hallways while my pup was recovering from knee surgery and it works great, doesn't slide and provides excellent grip. It's reasonably cheap as long as you don't have to cover too much square feet. You can buy a couple large sheets and cut them to whatever proportions you need.

u/eponra · 2 pointsr/hotas

Yes. There are rubber mats for carpets, which are working really good for stopping pedals from slipping around, IF the pedals are heavy enough.

Something like this:

I dont use pedals any more, but i had a stone old saitek (?) one, for which i used these rubber mats, together with a bit scrap metal which i put on the pedals to make them heavier. (because these pedals were really lightweight)

u/batshitforbubblewrap · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Ive also seen it on eBay, but it does ship from China so it takes awhile.

Softest rug ever though!!

u/gcThrizzle · 2 pointsr/DMAcademy

Be careful when printing these maps to have the scale correct. If the map says 1 square = 5ft sq, then you want each square to be 1 inch on each side. This will make the maps "feel" the right size.I do this measuring in Gimp to be sure. /u/sanderdc also makes a great point about the squares being 10ft sq !

You can also just buy some gaming paper or a wet/dry erase battle mat and draw it out yourself. Sometimes, that's pretty fun, and you can draw new parts as you go. This simulates the "fog of war" effect. It also requires far less preparation because you're just live copying the map as you go.

u/Linguist208 · 1 pointr/HelpMeFind

This sort of thing works great. That's an Amazon link, for $25 worth of the stuff, but I've seen sheets of it for a buck at Dollar Tree.

I use it to keep tablecloths in place, to stop my cutting boards from sliding around on the countertops, to keep my kitchen table from sliding around on the tile floor, all sorts of stuff.

u/Moofies · 1 pointr/hoggit

There's this stuff you can get for putting under rugs to keep it from sliding. I had a few feet left of it from the last time I needed it, so I just cut a rectangle to sit under my Satiek pedals.

This is what I have (not exact brand but same stuff): Amazon link

You can get it at hardware stores or a bunch of other places. I literally just googled "non slip rug stuff" and got a bunch of hits.

u/akronymn · 1 pointr/fixit

An area rug pad might work - cut out a rectangle a little smaller than your cutting mat.

I printed a shit ton of maps out on my own printer and taped them together. It was a nightmare but it worked.

If you don't mind spending the money tossing a grid on top of a map together on a single file and the heading to your local print shop is your best bet. I was fortunate enough to have an architect friend print out 2 maps in black/white for 2 of the encounters (also in LMOP).

TBH the best thing ever has been using a dry-erase map with a premade grid. Now I'm able to draw basic designs out on the fly.

The ones I got are HERE

Definitely a worthwhile investment and the printed texture keeps it from being a boring white dry-erase.

u/neodiogenes · 1 pointr/yoga

Just a thought, they sell this no-slip pad you can put under rugs to keep them from sliding around on wooden floors. It'll be less awkward than a towel, and probably more reliable. I don't think you'd need more than a small amount, so you shouldn't have to pay more than $5-$10.

u/Ryngard · 1 pointr/DnD

I've not found much luck... we learned that lesson too so no red pens. :)

I changed to the flipmat... it was SteelSquire when I got them oh... 12 years ago?... but I think it's Paizo now. They have multiple sizes, they are double sided (hex and squares) and fold to the side of a sheet of paper. You can use dry erase, wet erase, or permanent marker and it all cleans up.

Yeah here is an example. Its 24" x 30" for $15 and you can get ones MUCH larger. And they now have terrain ones and buildings and shit. It's neat.

(Paizo has a BUNCh but I'm not finding the larger one... I KNOW it used to exist but I guess not anymore unless I just can't find it. We've been using the 24"x30" for a year now and I've never had any issues (I have two so I can easily plunk another up there.)

This is cool though:

u/90Days_Lex · 1 pointr/90daysgoal

I find that I use the same amount of space in Asylum that I do for Insanity, about 4' by 6' of space. It's hand weights or bands, and the pull up moves are modified if you don't feel like getting a bar. That's just my personal experience though! Best of luck with everything! If you get Amazon deliveries, I'll see if I can find what I'm talking about on Amazon for you :)

EDIT:: Found it here!

u/UnicornToots · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

You can just use the same anti-slip pads that go under rugs to prevent the tiles from sliding around, like this. Very easy.

u/thousandcleverlines · 1 pointr/femalelivingspace

I think these would look nice, maybe?

u/PusherLoveGirl · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

You can also get little rubber mats to lay under a rug to prevent them from slipping. This was the first result I got on Google.

u/oklahomachad · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

I just got it on Amazon, but I think it is available at a lot of places: nuLOOM Moroccan Blythe Area Rug,...

u/designbot · 1 pointr/rpg

Invest $15 in a flip mat. Folds up to fit in a book and works with wet or dry-erase markers. (Also available in other colors.)

u/TehHamburgler · 1 pointr/battlestations

The south shore desk is a little taller than the file cabinets and I cut a piece of this type stuff to match the surface area of the old desk and just laid the counter on top. It's pretty heavy and takes some force to move.

and it holds pretty good.

CCF and uninsulated inflatable is a very common combo for the budget minded. You get a lot of flexibility and robustness and it doesn't weigh too much either.

u/Astramancer_ · 1 pointr/DIY

What's the floor that will be under the laminate?

You could probably get away with one of those "rug gripper" thingies that you put down under a rug to keep it from sliding around, but also to protect the surface of the floor.

Once the table's on it, it probably won't move unless it's particularly low friction between the laminate and the floor.

u/OverlySexualCellist · 1 pointr/DnD

Does it need to be a board/inflexible? I use these and am also planning to get this when funds allow it. They're great because they're portable and work with dry and wet erase pens (chessex mat is only wet erase I believe).

u/stonecats · 1 pointr/Pets

I would not use that design unless you tape it to a larger tray where the cats can apply their mouth to when licking it up, that you can then clean up later. if you use that on the floor, the area around it is going to get pretty gross. the feeder i linked to has a similar problem that i solved with a 18x26x1" fiberglass tray most restaurant supply houses sell for $10 then use a few feet of no skid rug pad under the tray to keep it from shifting around during feeding. you can probably find smaller pieces shipped on ebay.

I really like this map made for pathfinder. This pack has two-double sided maps (stone, grass, water, and dirt). I find it very versatile and works great with wet erase markers. They make other maps with basic buildings/rooms on them too!

u/hariustrk · 1 pointr/rpg

I bought one of these at gencon, while practical the fold areas distract. Nice and compact if you don't have a lot of space, but for an everyday mapping tool, spend a few dollars more for a chessex mat( or the Piazo ones

u/Hunyock · 1 pointr/DnD

I used to play back in the day with the '79 basic red box, then 1e and then 2e - none of us had a grid and the one time we tried to use it, we hated it. I've been out of gaming since '91 and just came back into it with the release of 5e and I was prepared to ignore the whole grid combat thing again, but I've found that - for us - it really does add to the game.

We primarily use the Paizo flip mats ( because they are dry and wet erasable but regular whiteboards and dry erase markers would work good to. As other posters have mentioned, we use the grid for ambiance, relative positioning, visual reference, etc. and don't get bogged down into exact 5' measurements. We refer to things as in combat, able to close in 1 round, able to close in 2 rounds, etc. Whenever one of the players tries to count off squares and then looks sad when they come up one square short, I remind them I didn't draw the map with absolute precision so they shouldn't have to move with it! We just keep in mind the PC's relatives speeds - we have a Dwarf with a speed of 25, and a monk that between his racial traits and a feat has a ridiculous speed of 50 or something like that. So we're just careful to make sure the monk isn't "penalized" by skipping the grid.

For really big important battles, I print out a published battle map if one exists because the art work really is nice. We started out using glass tokens and dice to mark the characters and monsters, but since then we've picked up painted minis for the characters and printed out 1" tokens for the monsters.

Overall it really does help add in things like terrain, chokepoints, furniture, etc. into a battle. I'm a convert.

u/bntyhntrqueen · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You NEED the Wampa throw rug. Like, for serious. You have to have it.

What I would really really like is a Bodhi Rook Funko Pop, but they don't have one! Like, really? WHYYYYYY? I have all the others, but he doesn't exist. I have lots of Star Wars stuff on my lists and some other fun stuff, too. :)

May the force be with you!

u/TroubledViking · 1 pointr/DnD

I use the Pathfinder Play-Mats, just the generic brown mat worked fine for me and it's wet/dry/permanent erase too. They also have themed maps (forest, hills, ship, tavern, etc) if that interests you but the basic brown/grey mat works great. This one is probably the most versatile for ~$20.

u/splelling · 1 pointr/buildapc

That's the top you want to use? That fibre board & vaneer style will just sit on top of another tabletop. You could buy some non-slip mat and put it between the two.

u/1bdkty · 1 pointr/DnD

You can definitely but I find its a bit harder and can lead to more arguments. For example, if everyone is on a grid map you can see where walls are, how far away from mobs you are, etc. If you use imagination someone will inevitable say "I thought I was behind the wall, how did they hit me" or "i wouldn't have run forward if I knew all the mobs were that close" or whatever.

The cheapest way to do maps is to get a reusable grid and some dry erase markers. It takes time to draw out the maps but its reusable and also very flexible. This pack uses square grids and has 4 different terrains (grassland, street, stone floor, and water)

u/flamero · 0 pointsr/Multicopter

Strap and this type of anti slip mat glued on the top plate.

u/Patternsix · 0 pointsr/trees

You need to have some sort of gripping surface on that. I get anxiety just thinking about the soap water and a very nice rig slipping from your hand and landing on the floor making a mess and a hazard. I suggest something like the stuff used to keep throw rugs from slipping on hardwood. Just big enough to go around the stem, the stuff has a big of tack so it should adhere to itself and not leave a residue.

BTW ... Love, LOve, LOVE! The ink

Edit: added a link to the mat material
Something like this Mat

u/katibear · 0 pointsr/thebachelor


And yes, I do actually like it a lot! It looks good on my wood floors and with my furniture. It's better quality than you would think for such a low price, TBH.


Edit to add- when I bought it, it was $86. Seems to have gone up in price. Maybe it will be on sale soon? Either way, its not a bad price for a rug.
