We went over to some friend’s house last week for a movie night. After being encouraged to take of our shoes, we stepped onto a rug and it felt like heaven! They had recently purchased a Rug Buddy.
This is basically a heated rug pad. It was seriously amazing. They are pricey at nearly $300 but for a family room with 2 little ones, it was definitely a good purchase for them. It got me thinking, why couldn’t you use a heated mattress pad for something similar? I think the concern would be that you could scald your floor but if you sandwiched the heated blanket between the rug and the pad you shouldn’t have that problem. It is possible that you would be able to feel the heating element though. Hmm.
I think our best bet is to wait for these to catch on in a big way for the price to come down. It was awesome enough for me to write this post so I’m guessing they’re going to be the next big thing. You heard it here first.
