What Are Rug Pads For?

Chances are, you have a 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. Keep you, your family and your guests safe from tripping and falling over a loose rug.

Rug pads help your rug stay in place, keeping it safe and looking great. They also create additional space and padding beneath a rug, helping 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!
