The thickness of your rug pad should depend on which issues you wish to address with your rug.
For small rugs and hallway runners, it’s best to go with a strong gripping rug pad with less cushion, as a thicker pad may cause people to trip. Our Pure Grip pads include Nature’s Grip, Super Lock Natural, and Anchor Grip.
Moderately sized rugs, 3’x5’ to 6’x9’ require a non slip rug pad. You should choose a Pure Grip rug pad if cushion is not a priority, and a Dual Purpose pad for cushion and grip.
For larger rugs (7’x10’+) that are often anchored down with furniture, a pure cushion pad such as Eco Fiber or Cloud Comfort offers varying levels of comfort for rugs that may not need a non slip rug pad. Some larger rugs, often thinner rugs such as flat woven rugs and other thin area rugs require non slip support and will buckle and wrinkle without a non slip pad. A dual purpose pad is a fantastic pair with thinner rugs, providing the cushioned support needed while promoting rug evenness.
