If you have an area rug that bunches up or slides around, there's a simple solution: a rug pad! This keeps your rugs from becoming trip hazards while protecting the flooring beneath. They also add a little extra comfort!
Rug pads have different uses depending on the material from which they’re made. 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 order a pre-cut pad in the specific size you need. Premium felt or polyester blend pads, on the other hand, 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 some of our most common pad types below.
