Expert Tip: Balance negative space and positive space (pattern vs. solid), and avoid laying solids next to one another

2. Use a T-square to mark overlapping edges, and remove with a fabric knife. Be sure to use the plywood as a cutting board to protect the flooring

3. Secure the rugs in place by applying rug tape to all four corners and the center of each rug. Repeat until all rugs are taped to the rug pad
