The thickness of your rug pad should depend on function and personal preference.
For small rugs and hallway runners, a low profile pad with minimal cushioning is the best option, as a thicker pad may cause people to trip. Our non-slip pads include Nature’s Grip, Super Lock Natural, and Anchor Grip.
Moderately sized rugs (3’x5’ to 6’x9’) usually require a non-slip rug pad. You should choose a non-slip rug pad if cushion is not a priority, and a felt + rubber pad for cushion and grip.
For larger rugs (7’x10’+) that are often anchored down with furniture, a cushion pad such as Eco Fiber or Cloud Comfort offers varying levels of comfort for rugs that do not need a non-slip rug pad.
