If You Like It, Then You Better Put A Rug Pad Under It!

Hi Everyone!

Are you asking yourself, "why is she using a bad Beyonce pun for a post title? (Or are you just asking, "Who is Beyonce?" Well, way back in March, I was approached by Rug Pad Corner to do a product review on their rug pads.  This was very serendipitous for me, as I had been searching for several rug pads for my living room.  I have always purchased the cheap, plastic waffle weave pads available at any big box store.  While inexpensive, I was never satisfied with their performance - my rugs slipped and slided all over the place and I was forever adjusting them.  Our dog would slide and move the rug whenever he ran by!  Dangerous and not pretty!

The kind folks at Rug Pad Corner let me choose two of their eco-friendly pads for me to try out and share my thoughts with you all on their performance and value. I chose the rug by the fireplace because a slipping rug by a stone hearth is a bit dangerous and also, the large rug in our seating area in the same room. After looking through their website, it was determined their Ultra Performance pad was the right choice for our hard flooring.  Their pads are green-rated and made without glue or adhesives.  They are a luxurious 1/3" thick.

While not glamorous to look at, let me tell you - these pads are the bomb!!!  My rugs lay better and feel fabulous underfoot. Even Mr. Bluebird, who more often than not will say "it doesn't matter to me," is madly in love with these pads.  I have to honestly say I never felt a rug pad would make much difference in the way I felt about my rugs, but I was wrong.  Wrong, wrong, wrong!

There is an old saying, "the difference is in the details." and in this case, I whole-heartedly agree.  My rugs now stay in place, lay better and feel wonderful underfoot.  Although you cannot see them, their presence can be seen in how our rugs look and feel.They have been in use at our house now for almost two months and I am sold on this company's product!  No more cheapy big box pads for me.

Now, here is the part I am excited to share with you all:  Rug Pad Corner is offering my readers a 15% discount on any rug pad order.  Use the code REVIEW15 to claim your discount. I think you will find their pricing very affordable and worth every penny!

 If you have any questions about my experience with Rug Pad Corner, please let me know and I will do my best to answer your questions.

  1. Rug pad is something I've been thinking about lately. I have one rug that always slides. I'm going to take a survey of what I need and then check out your sponsor. Thanks.

  2. Thanks so much for the information. I have no rugs all hardwood floors.

  4. Great info and good product. We have been taking our rugs to a place that sews a "backer" on them...and they never move and it protects the rug, too. Those waffle pads can really screw up a hardwood floor and leave a "residue". This product sounds like a much better option. xo Diana

  5. Hi Jane, this is timely for me too as we have runners in the foyer and hall with NO pads so I have been thinking abiut getting them! Thanks for the review and info!!!

  6. Those rug pads really do look like they're good quality. I will keep them in mind the next time I need them.
