Once you know what kind of pad you need, you will need to know what size. The pad should be slightly less than the length and width of the area rug. You can usually buy already cut to size pads for most standard sized rugs. In some cases, however, you may find that your rug is a unique size. In that case you would want to buy a pad that is larger than your rug and custom cut it to size.
Area rugs are a great way to show your more adventurous side. Bold and colourful patterns may take you out of your comfort zone, but they are a great piece for adding a bit of the unexpected to a room. Still, you'll want to choose colours that blend with other design elements of your room so that even as a focal point your rug ties in with your overall décor.
Makes your rug safer to walk on: The right pad will prevent slipping. If you choose one that has a grip to it, it makes the rug much safer to walk on. You certainly do not want anyone slipping on an arearug and taking a fall. Slippery floors such as linoleum and hardwoods can create a real fall hazard when an area rug is put on them with no pad to grip the floor.
