6 x 9 Rug Pads

What type of rug pad you’ll need for your 6x9 rug will depend a bit on its weight and thickness as well as where you’re placing it. For most 6x9 rugs, you’ll likely want some balance of grip and cushion. Look for pads that combine felt cushioning with natural rubber, the strongest gripping, longest lasting, safest and most eco-friendly material for keeping rugs lying flat and in place.

For thinner, lighter-weight rugs like flatweaves consider a strong-gripping pad like Rug Pro, a low-profile, high-performance pad that works particularly well in high traffic areas and wherever door clearance may be an issue and/or you’d like your rugs to lie flat and flush with the floor. This pad’s solid design offers more floor coverage than traditional waffle-style non-slip pad, keeping dirt from accumulating and reaching your floors and making vacuuming easier, effectively extending the life of your 6x9 rug by helping to keep it clean. 

If you’d like a bit of cushion under your 6x9 rugs but still need to keep a relatively low profile, consider Contour Lock. This 1/8 inch-thick felt and rubber pad offers a strong grip and moderate levels of cushioning without bulking. This pad offers a great overall value for reliable grip and subtle cushioning.

For more cushion, particularly under 6x9 rugs in living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms, there’s Superior Lock, combining the best of both grip and cushion. Made with more felt and a gentle heat-pressing technique, Superior Lock offers unyielding, non-slip traction with thick, cushioned support. It’s essentially a thick layer of felt combined with a thinner non-slip, natural rubber pad. The needle-punched felt surface naturally clings to the bottom of rugs to anchor it to its surface, giving your rugs the ‘hug’ they need while giving you extra softness and comfort in two thicknesses, 1/4 inch and 7/16 inch, the best choice for maximum comfort under 6x9 rugs.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • I am looking for two kinds of pads: one for a runner and one for a 6'x 9' rug on hardwood floors. Both pads should have sound reducing properties.

    Our Superior Lock 7/16" thickness is a great pad for sound dampening and is suitable for your runner and your rug. It will help to greatly reduce noises within your home while also keeping neighboring noises out.

  • I need a breathable pad due to Florida’s humidity. I’m interested in the all felt pad because of the cushioning but our cats have accidents and I’m not sure how to get urine out of felt. We also need a custom cut for a 6x9 rug. What do you suggest?

    I suggest our Anchor Grip rug pad, which is made from a soybean oil-based polymer blend. This pad is waterproof with a liquid resistant barrier that temporarily prevents spills and pet accidents from reaching floors. In all honesty, urine is a tough liquid to clean, but when you do clean your pad we recommend blotting it. Anchor Grip is a low-profile pad with exceptional non-slip traction and comfortable cushioning. And we can custom cut it to fit your rug.

  • What kind of pad should I use for a 6x9 feet area rug that is 100% polypropylene? It is on a tile floor in a low use area.

    The best pad for your needs depends on whether there will be furniture on your rug. If so, you probably won't be too concerned about slipping so I suggest Eco Plush for its lush cushioning. If you haven't put any furniture on the rug, take a look at our Superior Lock. This pad provides both comfort and a strong foundation that will prevent your rug from moving, creeping and bunching

  • Can I put a rug pad under a latex-backed 6' by 9' rug to prevent damage to hardwood floors?

    Yes, you can. I would suggest our Contour Lock or Anchor Grip rug pads. Both of these low-profile pads have solid gripping power, and will protect your hardwood from damage.

  • I have just bought a 6' x 9' Bosphorus Faded Tribal Cartouche Medallion Rug that's to go vinyl plank flooring. What pad do you suggest and how thick should it be? I am looking for something with cushioning.

    We only sell two types of pad for vinyl flooring and they are Anchor Grip and Eco Plush. Anchor Grip is a non-slip pad which is what you will need for a rug your size otherwise it will slip. Eco Plush comes in three different thicknesses but it is not a non-slip pad. You can also contact your floor manufacturer and ask if natural rubber is okay to use. If so, then I can recommend Superior Lock 7/16". This has a lot of cushion and it is also a non-slip pad.
