I tried to cheap out on the basic "waffle" grid rug pad. It was....ok.
I finally decided to get a decent pad and yes, it DOES make a difference.
The rug lays better and feels thicker.
I had a difficult time determining the difference between "Deluxe", "Superior", "Supreme" felt pads but was able to find the thickness differences in the Q&A.
I bought 2 pads for different size rugs and had to cut one down. It wasn't too bad with a scissors. (The edge is not as crisp or perfectly straight as the non-cut side) But it's underneath the rug and doesn't show.
Yes, it was worth it!
This is a great rug pad especially for the money. At first when I laid it out on the floor, I was concerned that the wrinkles would show through on the sisal rug I was putting on top of it would show through. After a day or two of laying out flat and placing the sisal rug on top, no wrinkles. I had to trim off some of the sides of the pad because my sisal was a 9x12 and this pad is a 9x13, a little tough to cut through but not bad. Just shows that this is a quality product that I would purchase again.
Bought this rug pad to fit under my 9'6" x 13'6" rug, also purchased on Overstock. The pad is just the right size; I had no need to trim or cut. I selected this rug pad after reading reviews on several competing items at Overstock, and this one appeared to be most highly recommended. My rug stays in place and is wonderfully soft to walk on. As usual with Overstock, it shipped and arrived within a matter of just a few days.
If you are looking to add some cushion to your current rug, this is the pad for you! It's thick with just the right amount of loft underfoot and clearly a durable pad that will not need replacing.... EVER. Be aware that it is on the thicker side, which is perfect for medium to high pile rugs. However, if you have a thin rug, I'd recommend a thinner rug pad because this one would create an underneath "ledge" around the inside perimeter of your thin rug.
I also like that this pad is solid without gaps or holes, so it truly traps the dirt/dust for total hardwood protection.
Thank you for offering the larger (non-standard) sizes as well; very helpful.
I did not give this product 5 stars only because I don't know what an excellent rug pad feels like nor do I know how it will last over time. As others have said, this is a well made, thick, and seemingly durable pad. It comes folded which results in many folds but after a day, they are all gone.
Just getting ready to put this rug pad down and it may be obvious to others but would you put the rubber side down or the felted surface over a saltillo tile floor? Thanks.bartklk on Aug 7, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
You would put the rubber side down to prevent the rug from slipping. Thank you for shopping Overstock. Shelia Boverstockcustomercare2 on Aug 9, 2014
What are the dimensions of this product when it is being shipped? (I need to figure out if I have to get it shipped to my office instead of home.)darioism on Apr 27, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
If I remember correctly, the pad is folded, but it is still large, so I would guess 3' x 4'.peaces13 on May 6, 2014
Yes, just got one. It was folded in a plastic see thru package. 3x4 seems about right and about 1 foot thick.elizabethtobin on May 9, 2014
Yes was amazed at the see-thru plastic but it was sturdy and no holes in it. Size below is accurate.mmarl on Jul 19, 2014
Hi darioism, the approximate shipping dimensions are 6 x 18 x 22 inches. I hope this helps, thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 23, 2014
Hello, you would need an all felt rug pad. This one has rubber on the back that could cause damage to your heated floors. Here is one that will work for you #14202509.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 11, 2013
Here are the care instructions: Vacuum or shake out debris. Spot clean as needed with mild detergent and water. If the pad should get wet, do not cover with a rug until the pad is completely dry. Do not professionally clean with the pad still underneath the rug as neither will dry completely. overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 29, 2012
I would just vacuum. Mine is huge, so that's about all I could do. It is very heavy duty and I prefer over the rubber backing type. It does not slide. Makes the rug seem even more luxurious.lewinslow on Aug 8, 2013
Can tell you heavy and thick. Mine is extra large and it took all 4 in our family to fold it out and center. I think 2 could have, but it is really heavy and great quality.lewinslow on Aug 8, 2013
can this padding be used with engineered hardwood floors? on Aug 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. This rug pad is great for carpet or hard surfaces.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 14, 2012
I bought this and it really is mix of textures with a heavy duty felt material. We have it on our hardwoods and have had no problem. I chose because it had no rubber that would maybe stick or leave a residue.lewinslow on Aug 8, 2013
