Worth the extra dollars for this rug pad. Very high quality, good materials, good construction. I use it on a tile kitchen under a new a rug. Provides extra cushion and keeps the rug in place. Yes, I will buy another when I have the need.
This rug pad does what it is supposed to do, namely, stop the rug from slipping and sliding around. It is a bit thick and does lift the rug height quite a bit, making it hard to open and close a door over the rug. Also, it is just slightly bigger than the listed size and so you do have to cut some of it off if you don't want it to show. It wasn't that hard to do, but still took a bit of effort.
I bought two rugs for to put in my home on my new wood floors. They were both purchased from overstock.com. I found that I needed something under them so they didn't slide on the floor so I looked on overstock again. I found these and they are affordable and the rug doesn't move now. LOVE THEM
If you're looking for a high quality rug pad, the Supreme is definitely the one to buy. I have laminate floors and needed a rug pad that would hold my area rug in place, the Supreme rug pad did the trick. Area rugs that slide around can be a safety hazard and it's smart to pay a few extra dollars to prevent slips, falls, and broken bones.
I'm giving this product only 2 stars because it doesn't keep my area rug in its place. I have the rug pad placed on top of wall-to-wall carpeting in my bedroom, with an area rug (4' x 6') placed on top of the pad. It doesn't matter which side of the pad I use underneath the area rug, occasionally, I still have to straighten the area rug. The area rug was purchased somewhere else. . . . Nevertheless, I barely weigh 120 lbs., and there's very little foot traffic in my bedroom, (I live alone) but yet, the pad doesn't hold the area rug in place as I expected. I did not return the rug pad because it had to be trimmed with scissors about 4 inches or so. So note that the rug pad is a little larger than the size advertised.
I have a couple of 4x6 kitchen rugs that slide around -- the type that are fabric-like/chenille on both sides that can be tossed in the washer. I tried the rubbery white pads - the ones that look like a wide mesh/criss cross. Those didn't work at all. The rugs moved, slid, got skewed -- everything. Plus it didn't take away the slip factor. I was constantly readjusting them. With this felted one, I was flopped it down, put the rugs on it and they stay put. Excellent traction and great ease. Was able to easily cut to size with standard scissors. Well worth it.
This is the second supreme felted dual surface rug pad I've bought for my home. This one went in the entryway under an indoor/outdoor rug. Since I have tile, it's hard to keep rugs from sliding around. Especially with these polypropylene rugs, they're just so slippery. The perforated rubber pads always got kinked in the grout and subsequently folded, creating sliding points on the rug. This pad is thick and doesn't budge. The bottom is made of heavy duty, textured (waffle patterned) rubber and the other side looks like recycled materials all woven together. It's pretty scratchy to the touch on the top but it doesn't damage the rug it's protecting. It really helps stick to the rug like velcro. I have another one on my hardwood floor (under a 12' runner) and it doesn't move either. I love that it's thick, providing a bit more heft to my flat-weave rugs, which I love. it's a purchase I'm willing to spend a little more money on for good quality but I didn't have to with this one. I hope I can get years of use out of it, so far so good (5 months)
I don't think the rug is going to go anywhere. I am using this pad on a hardwood floor and under a soft and fairly flexible cotton rug. This provides some nice cushioning and the rug has not moved. In my application, this is not in a high traffic area. I can say that it was very difficult to get it to move when I was trying to move it.
