Which is the right pad for your rug?


Rug pads have two key properties: grip and cushioning. Start by choosing which is most important to you.

Those that grip and anchor a rug and are low in density. They’re best for high-traffic areas such as foyers and hallways, where thin rugs and runners can act as banana peels; and for areas where you’ll need to clear closet or adjoining-room doors.

Those that cushion, add a lush look and feel to living areas. They’re ideal for rooms where children - and ambitious adults - will be crawling and playing and where rugs are already anchored by furniture, such as a dining room. They’re also great for apartment living above noisy neighbors, because more density = more soundproofing.

Should you decide you really need a degree of both grip and cushioning, opt for a Dual-Purpose pad.
