8 x 10 Rug Pads

For 8x10 rugs, in general, we suggest rug pads with more cushion than grip. Rugs this size and larger are often anchored down by their own weight or by surrounding furniture, so they don’t generally need a non-slip pad.

Because 8x10 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 8x10 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of 100% recycled felt made from new unused carpet fibers and yarn, heat-pressed to last longer and feel softer than outdated jute rug pads that can wear easily and cause unpleasant odors; unlike synthetic pads, eco-friendly Eco Plush pads are 100% safe on all floors; they contain no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 8x10 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 8x10s: 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 8x10 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 type of pad do you recommend for an 8' x 10' jute rug on the hardwood floor of my dining room?

    I recommend taking a look at our Contour Lock and Superior Lock felt and rubber pads. They will secure your rug to your floor and prevent common and irritating movements such as wrinkling, bunching, and sliding.

  • I am looking for a rug pad with a little bit of padding for my 8' x 10' wool rug. What is the best choice?

    The best pad to go with for your rug to add padding and protection is the Superior Lock 7/16".

  • Can you put a rug pad under an 8by10 rug that already has a rubber backing? The rug is on laminate and my son is always doing headstands so I'd like it to be padded.

    Yes, you can do this. I suggest the Superior Lock felt and natural rubber pad at either 1/4" or 1/3" thickness.

  • We have a thick 8' x 10' wool rug in the bedroom and are considering Contour Lock or Eco Plush 1/4". Any recommendations? Thank you

    If the bed is anchoring down the rug and pad I suggest Eco Plush. This pad's lush layer of cushioning will provide long-term protection for your floor and rug.

  • I need a pad for an 8 feet by 10 feet rug in my daughter's bedroom. The rug slips and is very hard to walk on without a pad underneath. I can’t decide between Superior Lock and Eco Plush. Which pad do you recommend and what size should it be cut to?

    I definitely recommend the Superior Lock 1/4" pad. It will keep your daughter's rug in place while providing underfoot cushioning. We’ll cut 1" inch short all around with our free custom cutting and trimming service.
