What Are Rug Pads For?
If you have area rugs without padding somewhere in your home, chances are they tend to bunch up or slide around when you take a step on them. There's a simple solution to this problem: rug pads!
Keep you, your family, and your guests safe from tripping & falling over loose rugs. Rug pads help to keep your rugs in place, keeping them safe for you and safe from damage, all while looking great. A good rug pad also creates additional space and padding beneath a rug, helping to keep the flooring underneath clean and adding an extra layer of comfort. The thicker the cushion on your rug pad, the more comfort and protection you gain.
Two Types of Rug Pads
Rug pads have different uses depending on the material from which they’re made.
General Rug Pads
General rug pads are made from a slip-resistant webbed material, and largely prevent 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 stick to the floor, offering extra protection against movement. They also help to prevent scratches under the rug and are best for adding comfortable padding.
Both types of rug pads can be used together, but you should definitely have at least one under every rug in your home. Shop our huge collection of rug pads to find the right one for you!
