9 x 12 Rug Pads

For 9x12 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 9x12 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 9x12 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of 100% recycled felt made from new unused carpet fibers and yarn, heat-pressed to last longer and feel softer than outdated jute rug pads that can wear easily and cause unpleasant odors; unlike synthetic pads, eco-friendly Eco Plush pads are 100% safe on all floors; they contain no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 9x12 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 9x12s: 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

  • I have a 9' x 12' rug with a 1" pile and am thinking of getting the Superior Lock pad. Which thickness is best for this size rug?

    I believe the 1/3" thickness will be fine for you.

  • I will be ordering a 9' x 12' rug for my family room. Do you recommend a non-slip pad or are the size and the weight of the rug enough? I have two very active kids who will even do cartwheels inside the house and obviously I don't want them to get hurt.

    Yes, I recommend using a non-slip pad with exceptional grip for your rug and family room. Take a look at our Contour Lock or Superior Lock felt and natural rubber pads. Either of these will work well for you to prevent your rug from slipping and moving while also providing good levels of cushioning.

  • What is the best pad for a 9 feet x 12 feet hooked rug on a tile floor?

    If your rug is to be anchored by furniture I would recommend the Eco Plush all felt pad. If there is no furniture then choose Superior Lock, a felt and natural rubber pad with a powerful grip and generous cushioning.

  • I have a 9' x 12' sisal area rug with a rubber backing that sits under a dining room table. What do you recommend for this?

    Take a look at one of our versatile dual purpose pads. They provide cushioning as well as gripping, which will keep the rug in place when chairs are being moved in and out. I suggest our Superior Lock or Contour Lock pads, and the most suitable one for you depends on the comfort level you are after.

  • What pad do you recommend for a 9' x 12' nice quality silk area rug? Is a rubber pad enough? Also, I've heard that I would need a pad with a non-slip side and a felt side. Please help.

    Our Contour Lock 1/8" pad will work brilliantly for you. It has a felt top and a natural rubber backing to stop slipping. This pad will not skid, stain or mark your floor.
