I debated about whether to buy the Premium, Superior or Durable carpet pad offered by Overstock. I assumed that the more expensive pad (Premium or Superior) was better quality than the less expensive (Durable) so I chose the Superior which was middle-of-the-road in price. The Superior is fine, but I recently ordered another rug pad (9 x 12) and decided to try the Durable instead since it was cheaper. I was shocked by the fact that for less money, the quality seemed so much better. The Durable is the Safeviah brand and it is noticeably thicker than the Superior pad. In my opinion, it is a much better value unless you prefer a thinner rug pad. Hope this helps you in your decision-making.
I bought the Superior Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pad (5' x 8') at the same time that I bought the (5' x 8') Hand-tufted ****** Wool Rug. I've been very pleased with the rug pad. It's held up very well, under heavy traffic, not like another rug pad that I purchased from another vendor for another rug. (That one practically disintegrated after a year in a high traffic area and was quite expensive.) The Superior Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pad (5' x 8') is great quality for the price.
Really like this pad!! have purchased 3 of these Superior Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pads. They make the rugs feel thick and plush when placed on wood floors! I have them under all my rugs! Also, priced very well!

... but this is still a good product because the extra cushioning alone is superior to most rug pads and that makes my inexpensive runner feel more luxurious. I bought this to use on my runner in the kitchen and planned to cut it to fit & piece together (runner is 2 X 6) -- I wanted this rug pad after all the reviews and because I was also buying the larger size for using on a rug-on-top-of-carpet. This is designed to work on hard surfaces as well as carpeted surfaces. But, while the rubber side of the pad grips the kitchen tile beautifully, the "felted" side of this pad is not grabbing the rug well and I discovered that it is because my runner has a thin rubber backing on it. It's a heavy traffic area with 2 dogs and 2 humans going in and out so the rug was shifting around -- the pad was staying put but the runner was shifting on top of it. I had previously tried a standard rubber rug pad under the runner and that was much worse, and of course the runner by itself on the tile was the worst of all, even with a rubber backing! So I'm sticking with this -- the solution was to cut the rug pad about an inch smaller than the runner all the way around and adhere the 4 corners of the rug to the tile with a little hidden duct tape. Rug stays put and feels thick so I'm happy.
We have used these superior hard surface and carpet rug pad for years. They last well, keep the carpets in place and feel nice on the feet. Strongly recommend.
I have this pad on several of my rugs and it provides cushion and protection for rugs on hard surfaces. I highly recommend.
This is a very well made pad that can be used over carpet or hard flooring. It’s thick and sturdy and will last a long time, extending the life of your rug. Very happy 😃
This rug pad works well for natural fiber rugs on hard wood surfaces. It has cushion on one side and a no-slip surface on the other side. Making it a good choice for rugs on tile, wood or laminate floors.
Have ordered this size, as well as the 'Premium' grade in other sizes, to put beneath rugs in our house. Just finished a remodeling project and installed laminate floors, removing the wall-to-wall carpet. These rug and carpet pads do just what they say, and very well. Dense, thick felt backed with tough rubbery surface; use either side face-down depending on your application. (A rug on carpet, felt side down; rug on hard surface, rubber side down.) Nice and thick, these should last a long time. Two pluses: 15-year warranty, and *Made In U.S.A.* These should be noted in the item description on the site.
This is just a rug pad so it's hard to rate the appearance and the workmanship but I did find that the rugs were true to size and fit the surface that they were designed to fit. I hadn't bought rug pads for my rugs because I could never swallow the price! These are excellent pads and a great price. Having the pad under your carpet, especially on hard wood floors, makes all the difference in the world - they provide great protection and wonderful extra cushion.
Love this rug pad - its a good thickness (for the price) and there are 2 sides - one for carpet and one for hard surfaces so it will not slip. Great value for the money.
The superior hard surface and carpet rug pad is nice and thick. I put it under the area rug I purchased and it made the rug feel really cushy. It did take a little time to cut it down on two sides to fit my rug because it is thick with a nice layer of rubber-like backing. I took the advice of others' reviews and measured along the edge to mark the pad with a cutting line. It is definitely worth buying if you want your area rug to feel as soft under foot as carpet.
This is the third rug pad I’ve ordered for different rugs in my home. They are exactly what you want under your rugs on hard surface floors!
This is the second Superior Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pad I've bought because I've been so pleased with the quality. They keep rugs in place perfectly on my tile floor and slippery laminate floor. The pads also make the rugs feel more thick/luxurious with the nice soft pad underneath. I will never buy cheapo, thin all-rubber pads again.
I ordered this "Superior" hard surface pad for a hall runner and the "Durable" hard surface pad for my larger hall rug. There is really no comparison in quality. This one is not nearly as thick or plush as the" Durable" one. This one is not nearly as comfortable either. Worse still, my runner moves with this one and must be repositioned regularly. What a pain. I wish the Durable hard surface rug pad had been available in the runner size as I tried to find it, with no success. Not sure if they were simply sold out or don't carry it.
We just installed hardwoods and wanted to use an area rug from our previous house. Based on other reviews, I, too, purchased the Superior Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pad. This one is so much better than those rubber-waffle types. Walking on it feels just as it does on regular carpeting with padding. I am also going to order the 9 x 12 to use under the area rug in our dining room.
I am pleased with the quality of this rug pad...it is nice and thick and seems to be made well. The only thing that I am a little dissatisfied with is that even with the rug pad, my runner (which is in a high traffic area) still shifts around and I often have to readjust it to the correct place on the floor. This even occurs using the non-rubber side that is intended for the use on carpeted surfaces. I definitely have noticed though that having the rug pad makes the rug look better and more uniform, the rug is more even and firm to walk across, and vacuuming the rug is easier and it bunches up less with the rug pad underneath. Therefore, I am overall fairly satisfied with my purchase.
This is my first Superior Hard Surface and Carpet Rug Pad that I purchased. It has made a huge difference in the "plush" of the carpet. The pad is thick and fairly stiff. It doesn't slide around much at all. I will buy this again.
I love this rug pad! It was just what we were looking for to put under our new hand tufted wool rug. The rug pad keeps the new rug in place on a slippery wood floor, and it gives just that little bounce when walking over the rug. We were not looking to add height to our already 0.75" wool rug, so this worked out great. I did look at rug pads similar to this at my local rug and tile store, and they were ok. This one from Overstock exceeds my local store's premium rug pad and I'm glad that I took the chance ordering. All of the reviews were very helpful with making my decision. We did get other pads for smaller wool carpets in other rooms, however, this particular rug pad is far superior and probably lasting than the other bubble/poly types. Thanks Overstock for easy ordering, fast delivery, and a great product.
