This is because the rug is constantly being rubbed and crushed against the floor when anyone walks on it. A rug pad will cushion the rug and keep it looking good for a lot longer than just having the rug on the floor. You don't want your new rug to age prematurely.

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.

First off, this goes a long way in making sure that your rug is durable and lasts for years on end. If your rug is simply laid on top of wood or concrete, it is going to wear quickly. And while you may not notice this early on, as time goes by, you will surely be able to tell that your rug is beginning to wear out. To avoid this, make sure that the proper rug pad is used. And if you are not the one doing the installation, you should make sure that you still know what is going on. After all, once your rug is in place there is no possible way to determine with 100 percent accuracy as to if the right pad was used. In fact, the only way that you could do this would be by lifting the entire rug; a process that you probably do not want to get involved with.
