Have you ever bought a rug without a rug pad?
It’s awful…your rug ends up sliding, bunching and shifting. I can’t tell you how many sliding accidents we’ve had on sliding rugs over a slippery wood floor.
I’ve even tried those inexpensive rug pads that look like manilla fish net from a big box store and those are just as bad as having nothing under a rug sometimes.
If you don’t have a quality rug pad your rug is pretty much useless.
You may remember I’ve talked about this spot being command central in our home.
The space that cooking, talking on the phone, homework, family talks all happen. Because I spend the majority of my day here I needed a cushy place for me feet to shuffle on. I got a beautiful rug for this spot over a year ago but it slipped and slided all over. I took it out, put it back, took it out, put it back over the year and finally realized what I needed was a rug pad under it. Duh. But who wants to shell out money for something you don’t even see after you’ve spent a small fortune on a beautiful new rug?
The Rug Pad Corner reached out and asked if I’d like to review one of their rug pads. I chose the Ultra Premium which is best recommended for over hardwood or tile. Besides the fact that our rug would stay put, the thing that was the biggest selling feature was that it had a “GRI green label, had no chemicals and didn’t off-gas or smell.” Love that.
Plus it was just the right thickness to offer some cushion under foot.
They custom cut their pads so it will fit your rug perfectly no matter what the dimension.
My old rug feels brand new not that it’s got a pad underneath. Now I have cushion for my feet-sies, plus it doesn’t slide and there’s no chemical off gassing.
