I love my rugs, they cozy up a room and give it some extra depth and colour. They keep my feet warm in winter, too. I like that I can pick them up and clean underneath. Sand and dirt always fall through carpet fibers and collect underneath. I had such a rude awakening when I pulled up the wall-to-wall carpeting in one of the houses I lived in - there was so much sand underneath it was almost like a beach!!
With area rugs, you really need a carpet pad to keep the rug looking nice, to prevent the rug from slipping around and to avoid having the rug scratching and rubbing against the floor underneath it. Rug pads also help to keep thin rugs from bunching up and getting wrinkled.
What I don't love is cheap rug pads that stick to my hardwood floors and leave an icky film on them.
When Rug Pad USA contacted me about reviewing one of their products, I was happy to try out an eco-friendly, quality rug pad to see if I truly noticed a difference between it and the cheapo pads I had gotten from a big box store.
Well, I did notice a difference. First thing out of the box, the rug pad had no scent (this is a big thing for me). It didn't get all bunched up when I was trying to lay out my rug over the top of it and it was cut to exactly the size I needed. I like the extra padding it gives to my rug, I noticed it right away even though the rug pad itself isn't all that thick.
It was super quick to arrive as well. And Max and Eloise got in the act right away playing with the box it came in - win/win!!
This rug pad doesn't stick to the floor, but it doesn't move around either and keeps my rug nicely in place. It even carries a 20 year guarantee! It's made with plant based products, so it's not harmful to the environment, it lasts longer than other rug pads and it's safe for all floors. I'm really pleased with it.
