Area Rug Pads

Learn all about the benefits of area rug pads in your home.


Area Rug Pads

Area rug pads help to prolong the lifespan of your rug. Rug pads can help to keep your area rug in place, preventing bunching up or sliding from occurring. By keeping your rug in place, pads help to ensure that no scratching or scraping takes place on the floor beneath your rug. Rug pads help to protect your flooring and ensure that your rug consistently looks great. 

Rug pads also offer an extra cushioning layer beneath your rugs, adding comfort underfoot. For all of these reasons, rug pads are an essential area rug accessory. Learn more about the two types of rug pads that we feature below. 

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.
