Area Rug Pads
Rug pads are a necessary investment when you purchase a beautiful new area rug. Why? Because rug pads help to prevent the rug from bunching up and can enable the rug to better stay in place as people wall across. A sliding rug, in addition to looking sloppy, can actually scratch the floor beneath it.
For all of these reasons, rug pads are viewed as an essential and inexpensive add-on when purchasing a new area rug.
Basic Rug Pads
Basic rug pads provide you with what you need to keep your rug in place. They are the most cost-effective and can work well in your home.
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.
