When buying a pad you will want to understand what area of the house it will be going in. A rug that will be in a high traffic area like a hallway or entry should use a thin, non slip pad. These pads typically are made of a rubber-like material and have a weave look to them. These grip hard surface floors very well, keeping your rug in place. You want a thin pad to prevent too much of a height difference to avoid any trip hazards and create a natural flow when walking. If you are putting it under a rug in a living room that will be creating more cushion and sound absorption, then you will want to use a thicker pad, possibly one made from a felt material. You can even find pads that are meant for use with outdoor area rugs which usually come mildew resistant. If you are using a rug to carpet application you will want to buy a pad that is made specifically for that.
Regardless of the shape of a room, you will likely find an appropriate area rug. Even a long, narrow room can benefit from a rectangular rug. Indeed, the shape of your rug will depend on the furniture in the room just as much as the shape and size of the room. For example, a long dining room table is complimented nicely by a rectangular rug, regardless of the shape of the room. Also, don't be afraid to use your creativity when choosing rugs which are available in a wide range of shapes from circular, oval, square and rectangular to more abstract shapes.
Makes your rug easier to keep clean:A rug-pad will provide a barrier between your rug and the dirt that collects on the floor. Dust and dirt go through the When a rug is on a hardwood floor, it is important to have the right rug pad underneath. The floor can experience damage from rug scratches and furniture indentations and the dense pad will prevent this from happening. The best rug pads for hardwood floors are ones that are either a solid felt or a felt and natural rubber combination.
