There are several different kinds of rug pads for different types of floors and floor covering like thick rugs and oriental rugs for any type of flooring, cushions and carpet liners for hardwood, bamboo and ceramic tile floors, non-skid for organic hard floors and pads for outdoor patio, porch or deck floors among others.
Protects the floor: Area-rugs can cause scratches to floors. The dust and dirt particles that collect beneath a carpet can easily scratch a floor when it is walked on. Pads under the rugs prevent this from happening.
If you're using an area rug in a room, don't cover your floor completely. Your original floors will make a nice border to your rug. Even when you want to use a large rug, subtract at least 9-12 inches from your baseboards so that some of your flooring will show through. Finally, always use a non-ski rug pad underneath area rugs to prevent movement of the rug. The rug pad should be about 2 inches smaller than the rug so that it doesn't show through.
