Choosing the right rug pad can make a world of difference! Here are a few factors to consider.
Rug type: First things first, consider the type of rug you have and the surface it will be placed on. If you have a thick, plush rug, you’ll want a pad that provides extra cushioning and support. Look for options like dense foam or felt pads to add that cozy feeling underfoot. On the other hand, if you have a low-pile or flat-weave rug, a thinner one will do the trick. These thin options are great for adding grip and preventing slippage, especially if you’re placing the rug in a high-traffic area or under a doorway.
Rug size and shape: Another factor to keep in mind is the size and shape of your rug. It’s best to choose a mat that is slightly smaller than your rug, allowing the edges of the rug to lie flat on the floor. This prevents any unsightly bumps or tripping hazards. If you have an irregularly shaped rug, fear not! We provide custom options that can be easily trimmed to fit your unique rug shape.
Durability: Lastly, durability matters! Look for rug pads that are made from high-quality materials, which are more resistant to wear and tear. Rubber or natural rubber pads are excellent choices. These provide a good grip while also protecting your floors from scratches. Plus, they’re less likely to break down over time. Felt is another great material to put under a rug.
Remember, the right choice will not only keep your rug in place but also protect your floors and add that extra touch of comfort. So take a moment to assess your rug type, size, and where it will be placed, and choose an option that suits your needs.
