Area Rug Pads

What Are Rug Pads For?

If you have an area rug that slides or shifts, there's a simple solution: a rug pad. Rug pads keep rugs in place, preventing them from becoming trip hazards. They also create additional space and padding beneath a rug, which delivers extra protection for the flooring underneath and adds an extra layer of comfort, too! The thicker the rug pad, the more comfort and protection you'll enjoy.

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. They 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 you can 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 ideal 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!
