Even the best rug needs a rug pad! A properly sized rug pad provides extra padding for increased comfort, insulation, and soundproofing. In addition, non-skid rug pads provide an important safety measure, particularly when used with lighter flat weave rugs. Rug pads also help your area rug last longer by protecting the weave. Tapis offers three quality rug pad options: Solid Extra-Grip, Firm Grip & Shift Loc.
