Rug Pads and Why to Use One

Ocean Maze Jute Braided Rugs

Every rug pad is made for a specific usage. The purpose of a rug pad is to increase the life and usability of the rug, as well as to add to the safety and comfort of your home.

Anti-Skid Protection

One of the biggest reasons people use a rug pad is to keep the rug from skidding or sliding. Rugs in general have a tendency to slip under foot traffic. On a slick or wet floor, there is risk of falling when a rug slides under your feet. Using a rug pad will act as a grip between the floor and the rug. It also reduces time spent constantly straightening the rug and helps prevent wrinkles in the rug.

Increased Comfort

A rug pad adds a layer of comfort to the rug. Rug pads come in thicknesses. The thicker the rug pad, the more cushion and comfort you will feel when standing or walking on the rug. In your kitchen where you will spend a lot of time on your feet, a thick rug pad under a kitchen rug not only provides anti-skid protection, it can keep your feet and legs feeling better, too.

Suppresses Sound

A rug pad can absorb most of the shock and sound caused by anyone walking the rug so the room stays quieter. It can also absorb some of the day-to-day sounds in your home. If you live in an upstairs apartment or have a teenager in an upstairs bedroom who loves loud music, a rug with rug pad can help people living downstairs from being bothered or disturbed.

Prolongs the Life of a Rug

A rug pad acts like a buffer between the rug above and the hard surface of the floor below. Extra padding helps protect your rug against daily wear and tear.When you prevent the rug from sliding, you prevent stretching and stress on the rug. A rug pad also helps reduce the pressure from furniture legs or other heavy items that rest on the rug. Think of a rug pad as protecting your rug investment.


Protection Against Staining

A rug pad prevents marring, dye transfer, scratching and staining to the carpeting or flooring beneath it.

Many Rug Pads to Choose From
