What is the purpose of a rug pad?
A rug pad is a sheet of cushion that acts as a buffer between your rug and the floor. A rug pad provides a non-slip foundation for your rug, reduces wear, and prevents holes and frayed edges. By having a rug pad made of natural materials you will never have to worry about damage to your flooring underneath.
The benefits of having padding underneath your rug
Don’t just buy a rug pad from your local department store
When it comes to a fine quality area rug, cheap pads found online or on the clearance rack in stores are not going to actively defend against foot traffic. If you own an antique or oriental rug, this is one area where you really need to seek out the help of an expert. When it comes to finding a rug pad that meets the quality of your rug, a credible rug store that specializes in quality area rugs will be your best bet.
How to choose the right pad for your area rug
A rug pad may seem like a useless or unnecessary add-on but upon considering all the times your rug has either slid, scuffed, or shed, you will shortly realize its worth. It may be hard to believe, but one cushiony pad can be the extra help you needed all along to prevent these problems.
Ideally, a rug pad should be slightly smaller than your rug to eliminate the risk of a tripping hazard. Having a smaller rug pad also ensures that it will not be visible. After determining the correct size for your rug pad, the thickness of your mat and the type of flooring in your home are some of the next things to consider.
Below are three different types of rug pads:
Unsecured rugs can lead to injury
People who fall due to rugs slipping on wood floors or other hard surfaces can suffer from a number of serious injuries. This common home danger is especially threatening for elderly people as it can cause broken bones and head trauma. Easily eliminate the chance of these accidents taking place in your home by getting a rug pad!
