For one, it should hold the rug in place on the floor. Two, it should provide a cushioned support. Third, it should protect the floor from harm. There are many different types of pads in the marketplace today. But finding one that can provide all 3 of the main functions we describe can be a challenge.

There are thin and thick open mesh types of pads that are made in China and coated with PVC (polyvinyl chloride) that do a great job of keeping rugs from moving on the floor. This same type of product can be found domestically where it is coated with a natural rubber vs PVC. This product does an effective job of keeping the rug from moving as well. Other products that provide good non-slip properties include the felt rug pads that are coated with a natural rubber. So for satisfying this non-slip function in a rug pad, there are many options to choose from depending on your budget.
