Recommendations for Rug Padding

If you’re using a large or oversized rug, it’s not always necessary to use rug padding, since the size and weight of the rug will keep it securely in place. However, in areas with high humidity, or where heavy furniture like a table or sofa will be placed on top of the rug, rug padding can offer benefits.

By cushioning the weight of the furniture and distributing it evenly into the padding you can protect your rug from premature wear and tear from these pressure points.

Rug padding also absorbs moisture that could otherwise reach your rug’s fabric and cause damage. Investing in quality padding for large or oversized rugs can extend its life and protect from damage from humidity.
