8 x 11 Rug Pads

For 8x11 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 8x11 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 8x11 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of 100% recycled felt made from new unused carpet fibers and yarn, heat-pressed to last longer and feel softer than outdated jute rug pads that can wear easily and cause unpleasant odors; unlike synthetic pads, eco-friendly Eco Plush pads are 100% safe on all floors; they contain no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 8x11 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 8x11s: 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.
