Rug Pad to the Rescue

I adore my new West Elm kilim rug, but it wasn’t cooperating so well with my current rug pad and hardwood floor situation. Notice the rolling and bumps below. IMG_5137I had a cheap rug pad that was too long underneath it and every time I walked over it, vacuumed, etc I would either trip on the rug or it would bunch up and I’d have to try and lay it out again. Not so fun. IMG_5139IMG_5138I was thrilled when Rug Pad USA asked me to review one of their products. I chose the superior lock non-slip pad because it works well with more delicate rugs like this kilim one and is low-profile enough for this small space. My rug is a runner but it’s a bit of an odd size, so I had them custom cut a rug pad to the correct size (always a great option). It arrived very quickly and I couldn’t wait to throw out the old cheap one.

IMG_5133The rug pad is eco-friendly and made in the USA which is a big selling point for me, personally. IMG_5136   For this particular rug pad on wood floors, you simply lay the rubber grip side on the wood surface and the felt surface facing up. IMG_5140 I laid the rug back on top of the pad and immediately noticed a difference. No more slipping, bunching or bubbling. And the pad has just enough of a cushion that it feels really nice and supportive to stand on while cooking dinner, etc. IMG_5162 IMG_5163 IMG_5164 IMG_5258If you are in need of a quality rug pad, I would highly recommend checking out Rug Pad USA.
