One thing to add to what other reviewers have said. The bottom of this rug pad has a kind of plastic surface. Not one that would glue itself to the floor (like the cheaper all rubber ones tend to) to keep it from moving. It really doesn't move. The other side is kind of roughed up-I can only assume that it is that way to have the rug itself somewhat stick to it. It is somewhat thick, so your rug will be a bit 'taller' than it was before, so be aware of that as well. It's pretty easy to cut with scissors too.
I was skeptical about buying these rug pads on-line but i could not find them in any store. All the stores had those flimsy open weave "pads" to keep area rugs from shifting. I wanted real pads. I was really surprised at the quality. They don't com wrapped greatly - but that was okay. We are very happy and plan to order more.
This pad is great for what we were looking for. I would have preferred something a little thicker, but could't find one. So, this is what we got and it is fine. It adds enough cushion to make the rug more comfortable and adds the extra padding for our little grandchildren.
I read lots of reviews on all the rug pads, thank goodness people take the time because it really helps make the best decision when spending money. this is a great rug pad to hold the rug in place in add cushion. i used it on a large 8 x 10 and what a difference. i was happy with the purchase, no odor as some often have and fairly easy to trim.
for a very few dollars more i got a really good pad. it is the Durable Hard Surface & Carpet Rug Pad and i recommend it over this one. a good pad has a huge effect on the wear and good looks of an area rug and that is why i wanted something thick and sturdy.
I have been buying my carpet pads from Overstock for some time now. They are great quality, keep the rugs firmly in place, even the flimsy ones, and provide a nice cushion underfoot as well. There are several types, dual and non, and the names are also confusing: superior, prime, supreme, etc., so whenever I buy a new one I can never remember what I bought before, but they have all turned out to be great. I am known to have a rug "habit," so I have learned the importance of having a good pad underneath, not just to keep it from sliding around, but also to protect the rug itself and keep it looking good.
This is my first experience with this type of rug pad and it's much more cushiony that other pads. I thought the price was a little steep, but I can see why since it seems more substantial than other pads and it did get fabulous reviews. So far, it works great.
This is the 5th rug pad like this I've ordered....all from OVERSTOCK....can't beat the price or the quality. It came quickly, as usual. I have hardwood floors with wool area rugs in all rooms....this pad saves my floors and adds so much padding to the rug. Feels super underfoot.
I put this under a very sophisticated wool rug, also from overstock. It made an already luxurious rug even more heavenly. Sooo comfortable. Really glad I purchased this versus the thin rubber pads I usually put down to hold rugs in place. This holds well, cuts easily (I always like my pads a tad smaller than the rug itself) with a scissor and is so much better all around. And best of all...NO off gassing smell.
Searched for a nice, thick, non-slip rug pad for my new 8 x10 wool rug. Only found over-priced, skimpy, rubbery ones in my local stores. This one fits the bill. Very well priced, neatly packaged, and has the quality my rug deserves. Added to the plush feel of the rug, just as I was hoping.
Nice thick rug pad with a grip on one side and cushion on the other. Mine did not have a smell associated with it. It was pretty close to size. I had to cut about 3 inches off on one side with scissors, but it was easy to cut. Will definitely order this product again.
