What are the Best Area Rug Pads For Hardwood Floors?

Updated on February 13, 2013

Area Rug Padding Is A Must For Hardwood Floors

If you have hard wood floors then you absolutly have to get padding for any area rug you get. Most rugs will slide around on wooden floors and if you get the right kind of padding you can minimize the chances that your area rugs will ever move more than you want.

The pads below tend to be less plush as their main goal is to keep an area rug where you place it rather than add to it's softness. Nevertheless I have featured a few thick area rug pads below in case that is what you are looking for.

In all cases only the top rated products are featured below. I hope you find something that works for you.

Top Rated No Slip Rug Pads

Rug pads designed to keep area rugs from sliding across a hardwood floor are a must for many different types of rugs that do not have non-slip undersides built in already. Typically machine washable rugs and many runners need these kinds of pads as well as many braided area rugs. In some cases standard 8x10 area rugs can perform better with an area rug pad underneath. below I've featured some of the more common rug pads. There are of course many other to choose from as well.

No Slip Rug Tape Is Another Good Alternative

An alternative to rug pads is non-slip rug tape. The tape is thinner than a pad meaning your rug doesn't lift off the ground as far. Some people prefer the feel of a thin rug that "sits low". Rug tape can help keep your rugs in place while maintaining this feel. Below are a few options in this category.
