This pad lays on a hardwood floor and offers a comfortable cushion for the rug. Unfortunately the rug slides around on top of the pad to the point that one end of the pad will end up sticking out by a noticeable margin of 5 or 6 inches. I've even tried flipping the pad over to see if that helps, but as soon as we walk on it the whole rug shifts again. Didn't realize I would have to continuously lift and reposition the rug throughout the day. It seems we'll have to place a piece of heavy furniture on the rug to keep it in place. That wasn't what we planned to do. Could it be that I purchased the wrong pad for hardwood floors?
I bought this rug pad A) because it was a 6' x 6' and I found it very difficult to locate that size rug pad and B) it was on sale at the time I purchased my area rug ... I am so glad that I did !!! I couldn't be happier with this fabulous purchase .
Placed under the Safavieh 4'x 6' rug just purchased from Overstock.com. Substantial padding, one side seems slightly rubberized. It works well under the rug.
