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of 100% recycled felt made from new unused carpet fibers and yarn, heat-pressed to last longer and feel softer than outdated jute rug pads that can wear easily and cause unpleasant odors; unlike synthetic pads, eco-friendly Eco Plush pads are 100% safe on all floors; they contain no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.
Will you cut the pad we choose so that it fits my 10x13 rug or will we need to cut it?
You don't have to cut the rug pad yourself because we will do it for free with our custom cutting service. Just enter your rug's dimensions and we'll make sure the pad is a perfect fit.
Which of your pads is softer and better for a tile floor?
The 7/16" thick Cloud Comfort is our softest rug pad and is for rugs that do not require protection against slipping. If you need something with a strong grip then go for our second softest pad which is the 7/16" thick Superior Lock.
We have 10' x 13', 6' x 8', and 4' x 6' rugs on new hardwood floors. We would like a non-slip pad that will not harm the finish or the wood. What are your recommendations?
I recommend our Contour Lock or Superior Lock felt and natural rubber pads. Both have excellent non-slip traction that will keep your rugs stable, plus they will provide you with some comfortable underfoot cushioning. These pads are completely safe for your hardwood and will not stain or damage it. Contour Lock is 1/8" thick while Superior Lock comes in three different thicknesses.
What rug pad would you recommend for a 10' by 13' carpet piece that will be used as an area rug on our living room wood floor?
I would suggest our Contour Lock or Superior Lock felt and natural rubber pads if you are looking for something with a powerful grip. If not, I suggest the luxurious cushioning of the Eco Plush all felt pad if you are confident your rug won't move.
I am looking for a pad for a 10x13 area rug that will be under two couches and a coffee table. Therefore, preventing slippage isn't the most important requirement. I'm really after something that will act as a sound barrier. What do you suggest?
I recommend the Superior Lock 7/16" thickness. This felt and rubber pad has excellent soundproofing that will eliminate internal noises as well as improve the acoustics of your home. When you place your order tell us the exact dimensions of your rug and we will cut the pad to fit with our free custom cutting service.
I’m looking at Eco Plush and Superior Lock for my 10' x 13' rug. It will be on laminate with two recliners on it. My rug is quite thick so I may not need the extra thickness of the 1/2" Eco Plush. However, will I need Superior Lock’s non-slip attribute?
With the size of your rug, you can go with Eco Plush. The rug is pretty big and has furniture on it so I doubt it will slide. If you are concerned that a 1/2" thick pad is too thick, we do have a 1/4" version of this all felt rug pad.
I have a 10 feet by 13 feet short shag rug with a pile that is less than 1". It is to go on a tile floor. I am interested in the Superior Lock rug pad and see many great reviews. Do you think the 7/16" thickness will be a good fit for my rug?
Yes, I think that is a great selection. The pile of your rug plus the 7/16" thickness will give you a good level of comfort and stability.
What do you recommend for a 10x13 Dhurrie rug that sits on a hardwood floor under a dining table?
I recommend our Eco Plush pads 1/4 thickness, which is easily enough cushion to protect your floor.
I need a pad for a 10' x 13' rug on a Pergo laminate floor but I don't want one that will stick to the floor. There will be chair legs on the rug's perimeter. What do you suggest? Also, what about PVC pads?
Since your rug is pretty large and you don't need grip, I'm going to suggest Eco Plush. This is a 100% all felt pad, and it is the safest one to put down on your floor. It contains no rubber which is why I'm suggesting it. With regards to PVC padding, we do carry a PVC pad. It's called Anchor Grip and is made from soybean oil and bio-based fillers. This pad is thinner and only comes in 1/8" thickness.
Which is the safest rug pad for a 10' x 13' rug on newly installed oak floors? This is solid oak, not pre-engineered wood, so I can't have any staining or sticking.
Eco Plush is the safest pad to put down on your floor. It is a 100% all felt pad that will not stain, mark or damage the solid oak.
