Why Should I purchase a Rug Pad?


Rug pads are beneficial in many ways. They are also available in many different styles and materials (including rubber, felt, self-stick), and from very thin, non-skid only to thick, comfort pads.

Here are a few reasons to consider using a Rug Pad for your Oriental Rug:

When choosing the right type of Rug Pad, you should consider a few things first:

  1. Where will the rug be? On hardwood? On another carpet? On Cement?
  2. How thick is my rug?
  3. How thick should the rug pad be? Experts say that the rule of thumb for selecting padding is that the area rug should be no more than one-eighth to one-quarter inch from the floor.
  4. What are the main reasons for getting a rug pad? Non-slip? Comfort?
  5. What’s the correct size for my rug? – Generally speaking, a pad is trimmed to about one inch inside the dimensions of the rug, excluding any fringe. For example, a pad or cushion for an 8’ x 10’ rug would be 7’10” x 9”10”.
