Thin rugs that don’t have proper support are more likely to wrinkle and bunch at the corners. This is especially true for Sisals, Kilims, Dhurries, Orientals, and other flatweave rugs.

Felt and rubber: the ultimate solution

Best carpet pad for bunchy wrinkly rugs

Felt and Rubber rug pads like Superior-Lock and Contour-Lock offer both non-slip protection and additional cushioning and are ideal for stubborn flatweaves that shift and wrinkle. The felt surface layer adds cushion, soundproofing, and insulation and attaches to rug fibers while the reinforced natural rubber backing keeps the rug firmly in place on the floor.

Best rug pad to keep rugs flat

Both Superior-Lock and Contour-Lock are compatible with all floors and finishes, even polyurethanes more prone to staining. Their rubber backings are coated twice to ensure they won’t break down and stick to, strip, or stain floors. Also, natural rubber and recycled felt are both non-toxic, sustainable low VOC materials that are completely safe to use in your home.
