Tape For Rugs
To protect rugs from slipping, double-sided carpet tape might be useful. The tape is placed on the rug and then firmly adhered to it. It's not a good idea to use it on hardwood floors or carpets with a rubber backing. Also, avoid using tape on hand knotted or antique rugs since the tape can tug at the fibers and eventually harm the rug.
Hot Glue Or Silicone Caulking For Rugs
If you look up "How to Keep Carpets from Sliding" on the internet, you could come across suggestions for applying silicone caulking or hot glue on the bottoms of rugs. The glue is applied to the rug's bottom and left to cure completely. The cured glue has a sticky texture that helps keep the rug in place.

The hardened glue or caulking can leave a residue on your flooring if walked on frequently.
