Area rugs pads are essential to add comfort and cushion underfoot. They also provide an extra layer of protection for your flooring underneath and help with the longevity of your rug. Area rug pads also help prevent the area rug from slipping.
AREA RUG PADS
General rug pads
General rug pads are made from a slip-resistant material that helps to keep your rug secure when you step on it. General rug pads can be ordered in a specific size or in a roll, where you cut and shape them yourself. General rug pads come with a shorter warranty and are less expensive.
Premium rug pads
Premium felt or polyester-blend pads are coated to help stick to the floor, offering advanced protection against scratching. An added benefit, they add cushioning when you walk on your rug. Premium rug pads come with a longer warranty and are typically more expensive than general rug pads.
