Cushioned Rug Pads

Lend a lush layer of cushioning, comfort, and protection for your rug. These pads are our thickest and most supportive products to bolster and enhance large area rugs while protecting your flooring.

Prolonging your rugs life: A cushioned pad will help prolong a rug's life by absorbing some of the foot traffic from everyday use. Rug pads wear from the bottom up, thus a dense cushioned pad provides a nice foundation for your rug, alleviating stress on your rugs.

More Floor Protection: The other big benefit of a denser, softer rug pad is added floor protection. Thicker rug pads offer more floor protection than lower profile pads. This helps with furniture scratching your floors. The other benefit of a cushioned rug pad is that it protects the floors from scratching rug backings and rug shifting. The back of rugs, especially handmade ones, can scratch up floors without a pad. A lush felt or memory foam pad will create a dense buffer to prevent this from happening.

Insulation & Sound absorption benefits: Similar to how cushioned rug padding helps protect floors and rugs, the added layer of cushioning helps muffle floor noise while providing more insulation benefits.

Layering: A nice benefit to having a more cushioned rug pad is that it gives the rug textured and layered look.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • What is the density rating of your memory foam pad when it is 1/2" thick?

    The density of the Cloud Comfort rug pad is 8lbs per cubic foot.

  • I have a 5' x 7' 100% polyester quality area rug on a bedroom’s hardwood floor. Is the dual purpose Superior Lock a good non-slip pad that also cushions? I want the rug to be comfortable when I'm sitting on the floor. Will 1/4" thickness be enough?

    Yes, Superior Lock will work well for you. In addition to its strong grip, you will find the thick layer of cushioned support very comfortable when sitting on your rug. The 1/4" thickness will be sufficient.

  • Which pad do you suggest for an 8' x 10' flat woven polypropylene and cotton rug that's to go on an engineered wood floor? I would prefer a really cushy non-slip pad.

    The Superior Lock 7/16" thickness is the best choice for your rug and hardwood floor. This felt and natural rubber pad will give you the plush cushioning you are after as well as a powerful gripping attribute that prevents common and irritating rug movements such as sliding.

  • I have a large needlepoint rug that I am going to put on a hardwood floor. What kind of pad should I use to hold the rug in place? I also want it to provide cushioning and protect my wood floor.

    I would recommend the Superior Lock felt and natural rubber pad. This pad provides gripping and cushioning and will not mark or damage your wood floor in any way.

  • My 8' x 10' rug is partially covered by a couch and a coffee table. It's worn and hard in areas where the dog sleeps. I need a pad for the entire thing or just the part uncovered by the couch. Basically, I want cushioning for my dog. Any ideas?

    If the rug is anchored by furniture I would suggest an extra thick rug pad, like our Eco Plush rug pad which is made of 100% heat-pressed felt and is a great pad for cushioning. With regards to just cushioning a part of your rug, I'm not sure how to go about that.
