Rug Pads for Vinyl and Vinyl Plank Floors

Vinyl is always classic — whether you’re dropping the needle on the White Album or updating the flooring in your home. Make sure you choose the right rug pad, or your nice vinyl floor could end up scratched and damaged like that LP your sister borrowed.

You Might Be Wondering...

I am told that several types of area rug pads will yellow my luxury vinyl plank flooring. What do you recommend in this instance? I think I need something that is BHT Certified.

Please contact the manufacturer of your floor type as they will have guidelines on what is and isn't safe. I am almost certain they will advise you to stay away from rubber. The pad that we mostly sell to clients with your floor type is Anchor Grip, which is a felt pad backed with EVA (a PVC alternative).

I have light vinyl kitchen floors that discolor with latex-based pads. Do you offer any pads that won't discolor light vinyl?
Can I use an Anchor Grip pad on my luxury vinyl plank floors? I would like to put this pad under a gel mat.
We are going to be installing luxury vinyl plank flooring throughout the house this month. I need many rug pads (some small, but several for 9'x 12' and 8' x 10' rugs). I'd like pads with thicker cushioning and wonder what you recommend.
I have new Mannington Adura grouted vinyl tile and Mannington vinyl distinctive plank flooring in my house. What rug pads do you sell that are safe for these floors?

Quality felt rug pad

Rug pads are so necessary to keep your rugs looking good. The pads that most stores sell are for traction. Rug pads are meant to elevate and provide a platform in which to lay. Anyway, their product is awesome, it came in just a couple of days and was a perfect fit! 5 stars for quality and delivery.

Best felt rug mat for hardwood floor

I got an area rug for my new hardwood floor. This pad gives me the protection and cushion I want. Delivery was quick and well packaged.

thickest felt padding carpet mat rug pad
Liked so well I ordered two more for my other area rugs.

This is a nice thick pad. I was previously using carpet padding wall to wall but it cannot compare to this pad even though they were the same price.

plush rug pad good for under stair runner

This rug pad is very plush. My rug installer used it under a stair runner and it worked great. The customer service is wonderful - super responsive.
