Why do I need a rug pad?
Rug pads anchor your rugs into place, keeping them from sliding around when stepped on. They also make your rug softer by adding extra padding beneath it. As an added bonus, this provides extra protection for the hard-surface flooring beneath. The thicker the pad, the softer the carpet!
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! Below are some of the most popular rug pads we offer.
