In laying a new “oriental” carpet on top of a Berber wall-to-wall, trying to cover some spills accumulated over 20 years of raising kids, this pad was recommended. This pad was delivered quickly, and after trying the carpet with and without - the pad is being used. It keeps the carpet stable and makes it feel great to sit on the floor/carpet. I am waiting for the carpet to fully relax before I use some double-sided tape to attach them together. I will need to trim about an inch off the pad (it’s an inch wider than the carpet) but that can wait until the Christmas decorations are boxed and stored. Well worth the investment.
I love this style and brand of rug pad. It keeps the rug in place and provides padding making the rug look and feel much higher quality. ( I have 5 kids and 2 dogs so I don't splurge on rugs yet). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars (like the other sizes I have in other rooms) is because this cut was off. The other sizes were fine so I don't know if this is an isolated instance or the cut is off on this specific measurement. It was slightly smaller than the measurements noted and if I cut it down to make a perfect rectangle it would be much smaller and because of the height would be far too noticeable. It's ok for now especially since I replace rugs about every 2 years.
This carpet pad is very easy to cut to size but I find I sometimes need to adjust it onto the rug. It seems like with a little traffic the carpet slides slightly off the pad. Annoying.
