Area Rug Pads & You

Area rugs are an important accessory for your rug!

Area rug pads can add cushion underfoot as well as add an extra level of safety for young children. They can also keep your area rug in place, preventing sliding or scratching from occurring. Rug pads are available for indoor and outdoor use and come with varying warranties. 

Area rug pads come in two basic types. You can learn more about them 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.
