7 x 10 Rug Pads

What type of rug pad you’ll need for your 7x10 rug will depend a bit on its weight and thickness as well as where you’re placing it. For most 7x10 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 7x10 rug by helping to keep it clean.

If you’d like a bit of cushion under your 7x10 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. Rugs often tend to have rough backings, so this pad’s slightly thicker solid design not only helps keeps rugs clean, but fully protects floors from scratches. This pad offers a great overall value for reliable grip and subtle cushioning.

For more cushion, particularly under 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, while offering extra softness and comfort in two thicknesses, 1/4 inch and 7/16 inch, the best choice for maximum comfort under 7x10 rugs.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • I have a 7 ft x 10 ft handmade oriental carpet to place on a new site finished wood floor. It will be in the foyer. What kind of pad is best for this situation?

    Our Superior-Lock pad would work best for you. It doesn't scratch, strip or stain and also offers power gripping. Superior-Lcok comes in 1/4, 1/3, and 7/6 inch thickness. You would need to gauge the thickness of you rug to choose the appropriate thickness of pad to purchase.

  • I bought a 7'x 10' area rug to go on top of my carpet. Which pad should I buy to keep it in place?

    The only pad we really recommend for rugs on top of carpets is our Carpet Lock pad. This eco-friendly pad is made of felt and natural rubber and holds fast to carpet fibers to keep rugs still and in one place when they are being walked on.

  • What kind of pad should I use under a 7x10 viscose rug on a hardwood floor?

    I recommend our dual purpose Contour Lock or Superior Lock pads. Both of these felt and natural rubber pads will keep your rug secure while providing underfoot cushioning. They will also help extend the longevity of your rug.

  • I am looking for a pad with the strongest grip for a 7' x 10' rug. What can you suggest?

    I would take a look at our Contour Lock felt and natural rubber pad. It is a non-slip pad with an excellent grip that keeps rugs stable and secure even in high-traffic areas. And if your rug has a rough backing, it will also protect your floor from scratches.

  • My new rug will be a 7x10 SmartStrand and will have a heavy coffee table on top of it. I don't think slippage will be an issue, do you? Therefore, will the Eco Plush pad be okay to use?

    We usually don't suggest Eco Plush for anything smaller than 8' x 10'. However, since you're putting a coffee table on the rug slipping might not be an issue. If you're really confident that your rug is not going to move then go with this pad at 1/4" thickness. I wouldn't go any higher than that.
