10 x 14 Rug Pads
For 10 x14 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 10 x14 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 10 x14 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of 100% recycled felt made from new unused carpet fibers and yarn, heat-pressed to last longer and feel softer than outdated jute rug pads that can wear easily and cause unpleasant odors; unlike synthetic pads, eco-friendly Eco Plush pads are 100% safe on all floors; they contain no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 10 x14 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 10 x14s: 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
What rug pad do you suggest for a 10x14 rug under a dining room table on a hardwood floor?
I would take a look at our Contour Lock pad. This is a low-profile 1/8" thick pad with a strong grip that also provides long-term floor protection and underfoot cushioned comfort without bulking.
Can you recommend a good rug pad for sound insulation? My rug is 10x14 and sits on a hardwood floor in an apartment with a grand piano.
I would take a look at our Superior Lock 7/16" or Eco Plush 1/2". Either of these pads will significantly reduce the noise levels coming from your apartment. Both sell very well to customers wanting sound insulation. We recently sold a Superior Lock 7/16" to a drummer.
I have a 10' x 14' rug on a limestone floor. My question is, do I order a rug pad that will be a little smaller or do you adjust for that? I would like a pad that sits back a little from the edge.
What you need to do is put in the exact measurements, and we will cut accordingly. We cut 1" all the way around so your rug will fit perfectly.
We are going to use an 10ft x 14ft piece of carpet as a rug on a high-end laminate floor. Which pad will protect the floor from scratches if the rug moves?
The Contour Lock rug pad would work best for you. This low-profile felt and natural rubber pad is 1/8" thick and has an excellent grip that will keep your rug in place and prevent its backing from making contact with your floor.
I’ve purchased a 10'x 14' rubber-backed seagrass rug for a hardwood floor. It won't move because there’ll be furniture on it so I don't need a non-slip pad. I am looking for a pad to protect the floor finish from the rug. What do you recommend?
As you will have furniture on the rug, I recommend the generous cushioning and comfort of Eco Plush. This durable pad is made of 100% recycled felt and will form a protective barrier between the rug and the floor that will protect the hardwood for many years. Eco Plush is non-toxic and contains no chemicals or adhesives that could ruin your flooring.
Which type of rug pad is the best to reduce noise from a downstairs neighbor?
You have three choices of rug pads that are good for reducing and eliminating obtrusive noises. They are Eco Plush 1/2", Superior Lock 7/16", and Cloud Comfort 1/2".
Is Super Lock Natural a good pad for 11' x 15' and 10' x 14' sisal rugs on wood floors?
Yes, Super Lock Natural will work well for your rugs. This dense, natural rubber pad has an exceptional grip, generous cushioning and confers outstanding floor protection. And it does all this without bulking up rugs. You could also look at the Contour Lock felt and natural rubber pad.
I have decided on the Eco Plush carpet pad for the 10' x 14' oriental rug in my living room. I am having a hard time deciding on pad thickness, can you help me out?
It all depends on the thickness of your rug. It's best to avoid putting a thick pad under a thinner rug, because you don't want it to be elevated. If your rug is half an inch, I recommend Eco Plus 1/4”.
Is Carpet Lock suitable for 14' x 10' rugs on carpet? One has edges under sofa legs and a coffee table which we sometimes move to let our baby crawl. Will this additional friction damage the carpet? The other rug is under a dining table and chairs.
Yes, Carpet Lock is a good pad for you because it is made especially for rugs over carpets. It will provide grip and prevent bunching and moving when chairs are being slid in and out of place. As far as friction damage to the carpet is concerned, we have never had a complaint about a pad doing that.
I have a 10 feet x 14 feet Eco Plush rug pad that is 3/8" thick. Does it matter which side is up?
The softer fuzzy side goes down to the floor. The rougher heat-pressed side faces your rug.
What type of rug pad is best for a 10ft x 14ft oriental rug on a hardwood floor? The rug is about 1/2" thick.
I've got several suggestions for you. Eco Plush 1/4" provides superb protection for rugs and floors and is a good choice if you're confident your rug won't move. It's made with 100% heat-pressed felt. However, if you need a powerful grip try Contour Lock or Superior Lock 1/4", which are made with recycled felt and rubber. Contour Lock is slightly thinner at 1/8".
I am looking for a 1/8" thick pad to go under a 10ft x 14ft area rug. I don't want anything that's too thick because I'm concerned about tripping. What do you suggest?
At 1/16" RugPro is the thinnest pad we offer. You could also look at the Contour Lock rug pad which is 1/8" thick.
I have bought a new 10' x 14' Tibetan wool rug to sit on a hardwood floor. I would like a thin pad that doesn't break down or stick to the floor. Any ideas?
I'm going to recommend Eco Plush for your 10' x 14' rug. This is a 100% felt pad that comes in three different thicknesses: 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2". Another option would be the low-profile Anchor Grip. This is a vinyl soybean oil-based polymer blend pad. We also carry a felt and rubber pad called RugPro which is 1/16" thick. None of these pads will harm or stick to your floor.
What pad is best for a 14x10 needlepoint rug under a dining room table on a hardwood floor? Also, what thickness would you suggest?
I recommend the Eco Plush pad, a 100% heat-pressed felt pad. This is the safest for your size of rug. When it comes to pad thickness, 1/4" would be most suitable for you.
I have a very thin 10' x 14' rug and need to know what pad to buy. I don't want it to be too thick because it has to clear my door. What do suggest?

What rug pad would you suggest for a 10' by 14' wool rug with sofas and a coffee table on it?

What do you recommend for a 10' x 14" rug on a hardwood floor? The rug will have a dining table on it.
The Eco Plush rug pad would be perfect for you, either the 1/4" or 3/8" thickness. This is an all felt pad that provides comfortable cushioning and long-lasting floor protection. It is for larger rugs that do not need a gripping attribute.
