10 x 13 Rug Pads

For 10x13 rugs, in general, we suggest rug pads with more cushion than grip. Such large rugs are often anchored down by their own weight or by surrounding furniture, so they don’t generally need a non-slip pad.

Because 10x13 rugs are most often placed in rooms like living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and dens, where you and your family spend the most time and where comfort and cushion are most desired, cushioned rug pads can be the best option.

Solid design, cushioned pads also protect floors from wear, dirt, scratches and stains while protecting rugs from tears and indentations caused by heavy furniture and offering a bit of soundproofing and insulation.

There are a variety of options available according to how much cushion and lift you’d like. Among the best choices for 10x13 rugs, Eco-Plush pads are woven of 100% recycled felt made from new unused carpet fibers and yarn, heat-pressed to last longer and feel softer than outdated jute rug pads that can wear easily and cause unpleasant odors; unlike synthetic pads, eco-friendly Eco Plush pads are 100% safe on all floors; they contain no glues, bonding agents, or adhesives that can outgas and ruin floors. Eco Push pads are available in 1/2", 3/8", and 1/4" thicknesses, depending on how much cushion you and lift you want.

For the ultimate in luxurious cushioning under 10x13 rugs, Cloud Comfort pads are made from the same high-quality visco-elastic memory foam found in premium mattresses. Made with natural minerals and soybean oils vs. petro oils for a very low VOC content, Cloud Comfort pads are 100% safe and eco-friendly. Their proprietary moisture barrier protects floors by blocking spills while allowing vapor to escape. It offers the highest levels of sound absorption, comfort and insulation available in a rug pad and is available in 1/4 and 7/16" thicknesses.

One exception to the general rule with 10x13s: for thin and fine rugs, such as flatweaves that tend to wrinkle and buckle, you may want to consider rug pads made with a combination of rubber for grip and felt for cushion, like Superior-Lock, thick cushioned felt with a reinforced rubber backing, available in 1/4" and 7/16" and Contour Lock, a 1/8" thick felt and rubber rug pad that offers a strong grip and moderate levels of cushioning without bulking. Contour Lock protects floors from scratching and rug backings, so it’s particularly well-suited to flat-woven 8x11 rugs such as Kilims, Dhurries, and Soumaks. These pads offer the comfort of cushioned pads but keep thinner rugs laying smooth and flat. And because they’re made from natural rubber, they won’t ever stick to, mark, or stain floors finishes.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • I would like a pad for a 10 by 13 area rug on a bamboo floor. I want something that won't stain or harm the natural beauty of the bamboo. What do you suggest?

    I recommend Superior Lock for your rug and floor. This felt and natural rubber pad is made with more than 1 lb. of natural rubber per square yard. Additionally, the backing is reinforced with another coating to prevent premature flaking and deterioration that is so common with cheap and low-quality products. The Super Lock rug pad will not harm or stain your bamboo floor in any way.

  • Does using a felt rug pad require a curing time for hardwood floors? We will move into our new home only a couple of weeks after the floors are finished. We have a pool table, and I would need to put my 10x13 rug down before they set up the table.

    My advice is to wait for the floor to be fully cured. It is better to be safe than sorry. The flooring's manufacturer should be able to tell you how long it takes for your floor to cure.

  • I have a 10' x 13' rug with a 1" pile that will sit on a simulated hardwood laminate floor. How thick should a Superior Lock pad be for this rug and floor or would you recommend a different pad?

    I would go with either the 1/4" or the 1/3" thickness.

  • I am looking for a rug pad to help block noise from the downstairs neighbors. I have yet to purchase the rug but it will probably be 10' x 13' or 11' x 11' and will be on a hardwood floor. What pad do you recommend?

    The Superior Lock 7/16" is the best pad for you. Its dense layer of insulation does a great job of absorbing sounds, thereby reducing noises coming into homes from neighbors.

  • I don't understand the statement on your site: "All rug pads will be cut approximately 1-1.5" on all sides." Can you please clarify exactly what size pad you recommend for my 10'x13' area rug?

    What you need to do is enter your rug's exact dimensions and we'll cut that pad so that it's a perfect fit. This is a free service we offer, and we'll take about 1" off all four sides of the pad.
