Rug Pads for Vinyl and Vinyl Plank Floors

Vinyl is a bit tricky so we always recommend following your floor manufacturer's instructions. Most vinyl flooring manufacturers recommend using a non rubber product, while some will recommend using only rubber. Given that most vinyl recommend no rubber, here are our non rubber alternatives.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • Can I put Penneys bath rugs on a Karndean vinyl floor or on top of your rug pads?

    Unfortunately, I can't speak about products we don't carry, but we definitely have rug pads that work well on vinyl floors, for example, our Anchor Grip and Eco Plush pads. However, before making a purchase I recommend you contact your floor's manufacturer for their specific guidelines on what can be laid down on your floor.

  • 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 soybean oil-based polymer blend.

  • I have light vinyl kitchen floors that discolor with latex-based pads. Do you offer any pads that won't discolor light vinyl?

    We use plant-based oils instead of other fillers that can stain floors. For example, many cheap pads contain phthalates that react with certain floor finishes. Our pads will not stain or discolor your light vinyl floor.

  • 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 find that the firm grip and floor protection of our Anchor Grip pad make it a popular choice among customers who have the same type of floor as yours. However, I do recommend you contacting the floor's manufacturer for specific guidelines about what you can use.

  • 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.

    First of all, please contact your floor manufacturer because they will have specific guidelines for your floor type. Having said that, customers with vinyl floors tend to purchase our Anchor Grip pad. This is a soybean oil-based polymer blend that is safe for all hardwood floors, finishes, and laminates. It has a strong grip and a generous layer of cushioning for a plush feel.
