The Importance of Rug Pads

Decorating your home is an art. Rugs are crucial items in this endeavor. The color, shape, texture and size of a rug may make a room either bright or dull. Also of similar importance are rug pads, though many people ignore them. I like to call the rug pad the rug’s ‘sidekick’. Here is why a rug pad is a necessary addition to every home.



Rug pads have ridges that enable trapping of dirt that may be entrenched in the rug. The ridges also allow air flow between the rug and floor, therefore assisting in vacuuming the rug.

You have kids or pets, right? Chances are that you occasionally encounter spillage. The rug pad helps in preventing the wet substances from reaching the floor surface.


Increase in Floor Life

In the absence of a rug pad, dirt particles may accumulate under your rug. This sustained accumulation of dust damages the floor as it causes abrasions. Moreover, rug pads also prevent dyes from the rugs from staining your carpet in the event of a spill.

Rug pads provide an additional layer of cushioning between the rug and floor, thus making the floor comfortable to walk on. They also absorb the impact of feet on the surface, hence reducing noise and enabling a peaceful environment.


Maintenance of the Rug’s Shape

A rug pad aids in preventing the rug from curling or developing wrinkles.



Rug pads hold rugs in place and maintain a firm grip. They prevent shifting of the rug when someone walks on it, in turn, preventing slipping. A rug pad is usually designed in such a way that it sticks to the rug and the floor. This happens especially when the rug has been placed on a surface like a tiled floor.

Rug Life Extension

In the absence of a rug pad, the rug may shift and grind on the floor. Over time, this leads to the premature ageing of the rug. Therefore, to prevent this, a rug pad needs to be present.



Types of Rug Pads

There are several types of rug pads in the market. They are classified based on the materials they are made of.

  • Felt and Rubber
  • Wool
  • Non-skid alternatives – For example, those made of 100% rubber or soybean oil


How to Determine the Right Rug Pad for you?

Now that you know their importance, how will you tell which rug pads are the right choice for you?

First and foremost, we have various types of rug pads in the market as stated above. Therefore, you need to know the size and thickness of your rug for you to get one suited for it.


Here are some points to consider.


Small rugs

3-foot by 5-foot and smaller rugs go hand in hand with a thin non-skid rug pad. If the rug is placed where many people pass through, the thin non-skid pad will come in handy to prevent slipping.


Large Rugs

Large rugs, probably 8-foot by 10-foot that are not prone to slipping can be accompanied by a ¼ inch rug pad or one that doesn’t have the non-skid feature. A good example of this is the felt pad. The felt helps in putting the rug in place.


Thin Rugs

The recommended rug pad to purchase here is one that combines the felt and rubber features.


Thick Rugs

¼ inch rug pads are recommended for these types of rugs.

In London for example, rug pads can be purchased from John Lewis Non-Slip Rug Holds and The Rugs Warehouse. Alternatively, purchases can be made online through Amazon and Argos.
