What are area rug pads for?
If you have an area rug somewhere in your home that always bunches up or slides around when you step on it, there's a simple solution to your dilemma, and that’s a rug pad. Rug pads help your rugs stay in place, keeping them safe to walk on, safe from damage, and looking great. They also create additional space and padding beneath a rug, helping keep the flooring underneath clean and protected from wear while adding an extra layer of comfort. The thicker the cushion on your rug pad, the more comfort and protection you gain.
General Rug Pads
General rug pads are made from a slip-resistant webbed material that prevents your rug from sliding out from underneath you when you step on it. You can order a roll and cut it to size, or order a pre-cut pad in the specific size you need.
Premium Rug Pads
Premium felt or polyester-blend pads are coated to help them grip the floor, offering extra protection against movement. They also help to prevent scratches under the rug and are the best choice if you’re looking to add comfortable padding.
