Go to Walmart. Lowes, Home Depot etc. to the carpet/rug section. They have a foam carpet/rug pads in various sizes that you can cut to fit under the throw rug.

We have used that foam underpad that looks like a waffle pattern. It is made of foam "string" laid out in a criss-cross pattern, so it is thin, light-weight, and won't make the carpet look any "taller".

But it holds most carpets in place pretty well. Cheap, too, IIRC

We use the rugs with the rubber backing. The kind meant for use in a bathroom.These don't slide at all.

You might want to read this thread about rubber backings on throw rugs...not sure if applies to the potential solution but thought it was worth sharing just in case you don't want darkened vinyl floors

I never thought to use that string foam stuff under rugs to keep them from sliding. Good idea. I use it to line my drawers and shelves. A good place to buy it is at Joann Fabrics. They sell it by the yard and it is about 54" wide. Can't remember the price/yd. but the savings is significant when you use one of their 40% off coupons. I think you can print a "40% off any one item" from their website or pick up a flyer in the store. Maybe you could even use a spray fabric adhesive to stick it to the back of the rug.

My wife got the stringy stuff at Walmart and its working good. We didnt want to use the rubber backed mats cause I thought they might trap moisture. Sal.

paint on

You can also find a rubber type of product made especially for rugs that you paint on the backside of carpeting. Since I sometimes do my own punch needle rugs I use that on the edges to make it stay put and lie flat.
I bought mine at a fabric store.
