I purchased this pad to go under an 8' rug because I had read of other 8' pads having to be cut, and I did not want to have to do this if possible. The pad came folded, then rolled, so it had numerous creases in it and did not lie flat. I lay the pad down for a week and put heavy boxes on it to flatten it out, which seemed to help a lot. Then I laid the rug on top. The rug just barely covered the pad, so I was glad I hadn't gone with a true 8' pad! The pad adds a nice cushion to the rug and keeps it firmly in place. I will he buying these pads from now on for ALL my rugs. Wish I had known about these when I had the hardwood floors in my house!
I've never used a rug pad with 2 sides before and am glad I bought this for underneath my wool rug on top of a tile floor. No chance of skidding & hopefully no deterioration of the synthetic rubber with age. The rug itself is plush & thick. This pad creates even MORE cushioning! The pad is approx. 2 inches less in diameter than my 8 foot rug and makes for a very nice transition with the tile. I'm extremely happy I chose the Superior product!!
I've used others pads that don't offer this high quality. Decided to buy something that will last and not make an impression of mixed in dirt and grime on my wood floor that happens from use over time with the cheaper ones.. It is being used underneath my cotton rug and adds a little cushion feeling that otherwise would be lacking. I highly recommend this type of pad. The price was really good too. Always happy with overstock items and delivery is usually lightening fast!
The pad is nice because it has a rubber backing so ther is absolutely NO slipping. I also llike the fact that the edge of the rug lays flat, just barely beyond the pad so it is a smooth transition from the hardwood to the rug. I have never purchased a pad before but am so happy that I did.
