Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Do it yourself I ordered a 5x8 rug with pad. I was quite disappointed that the pad came too big. I had to go out and buy shears in order to cut it down to size. At least I had a room big enough to put it on the floor, measure and then try to cut it accurately to fit. Not a happy thing! May 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by All surface universal rug pad. I have several indoor/outdoor rugs under which I use these pads. I find that they work well under the larger rugs but shift very easily under smaller rugs that are in front of doorways. March 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by rug stays in place I got this several weeks ago and my rug has stayed in place even with a very rambunctious dog in the house. February 12, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not as thick or high-quality as expected I guess I didn't read the description carefully enough to notice that it said "low-profile" (wish that had been mentioned in the title of the product), but I needed a thick pad to go under a rug in a family room with babies and toddlers crawling on it, and this wouldn't do the trick. I only had to unfold a little corner of the pad to put under the rug to know that it would provide very little padding or cushioning--not what I expect from a "universal" rug pad. And even though I didn't end up putting it on the floor, or even unfolding it all the way, I noticed the same problem that a previous reviewer had, where the gray rubber backing was peeling away. Must have been sent to me like that, in which case I am doubly glad it's going back. If you really only need something to keep a rug in place, with little to no cushioning, this MIGHT work--but it might make a mess on your floor, too. January 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Hope it holds up, and annoyed at having to trim. I installed this today, under a 6'X9' rug I purchased from Ballard Designs. The rubberized side seems to have been sprayed on; I hope it will hold up over time, and won't damage the floor. And I was surprised to find I had to trim it, as it was advertised to work with a 6X9 rug; the actual size was probably 75"X90". Trimming wasn't difficult; I just wasn't planning to have to do so. FYI - the non-rubberized side grabs well on fabric, and I would think it would stay nicely in place on a carpet. December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Satisfied Good quality, keeps the rug from sliding when the dog leaps into the room! Very satisfied. December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly as advertised. I am very happy with this product. Works as stated. October 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well-made, provides good cushion. I am quite satisfied with the rug pads Ballard recommended for my room-sized sisal rugs. They provide a good cushion. October 12, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not so great Does not hold rug in place. My rug slides off of it constantly July 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very nice, but.... I loved these when I opened them. Looked sophisticated and matched perfectly in our guest bedroom. Then, as I was placing a rug pad underneath, my fingernail scraped the backing which CAME OFF. So I rubbed my finger on other parts of the backing and it actually started peeling. It's unfortunate as they were a great price but would not last and the backing would make a mess. I returned. (Surprised that none of the reviews I read mentioned this...) July 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solved my problem! I chose this pad because of the product info in the catalog. It has solved my problem of bunching and wrinkling of an oriental rug I purchased to go over a larger carpet in my sun room. Thanks Ballard designs! July 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The Perfect Rug for our Sunroom This rug is the best we looked at and we did shop on this purchase. It fits beautifully in our redecorated sunroom and goes great with the furniture. The only negative is that some of the braiding sticks out slightly. I guess because it is a natural fabric, but it does bother me a bit. Other than that, the rug is fabulous. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect for seagrass rug We are using this rug pad under the natural sea grass rug. It holds the rug in place perfectly and gives enough cushioning to improve the rug's comfort. March 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great I like the fact that the rug pad is thin and can be used on both hardwood and carpeting. Also easy to cut with scissors to fit your rug. December 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Doesn't hold in place. Well manufactured product BUT it slips around on our hardwood floors. Have rubber side down and the fiber side up. The fiber side is in contact with the backing of the indoor/outdoor chevron runners we purchased from you. Perhaps these two sides aren't gripping. Is there something else you could recommend? Thanks. December 1, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by This pad does not hold the carpet in place. I purchased this pad to hold indoor-outdoor carpet runners in place over hard wood floors. It does not hold the runners in place. November 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rugs don't budge! These rug pads have a nice thickness & keep area rugs from skating across the floor. We have active retrievers and hardwood floors. These pads under indoor-outdoor rugs help our pups move around the house. They even keep paws from sliding when the pups sit. I'll certainly buy more when I need them. October 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to handle I'm using this pad under my new Ballard chevron-design indoor/outdoor rug in my office. No need to use an unsightly plastic chair pad under my wheeled office chair. Installing was easy & quick! February 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect non-slip and added cushion We used this pad under a Turin indoor/outdoor rug in the entry and another in the kitchen. Both areas are high traffic and we are very satisfied with this product and the rugs it protects. October 22, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by perfect entry way rug I love this rug because it is perfect for the entryway into our home! Mostly, it was inexpensive but looks expensive. September 21, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice, low profile rug pad. Nice, low profile rug pad. Good value for the price. March 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rug pad I purchased this rug pad to use at my front door with the Monterrey Indoor/Outdoor rug. It works perfectly and I don't have any issues with it slipping or not staying in place. You do have to trim it a bit to get an exact fit, but I like that because it means the rug will stay in place. I would definitely recommend this rug pad, especially for use in front of doors, and I will buy it again if I purchase another rug. It is much better than cheaper rug pads I've purchased in the past from other stores. October 2, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Thin enough, but rug slides around on it. Overpriced. The pad is quite thin so it does allows the door to pass over the Ballard Designs indoor/outdoor rug I bought for my entryway. This is the best part. The pad grips the vinyl floor well, but it does not grip the rug much, so the rug tends to slide around on it a bit, leaving the edge of the pad exposed in an un-pretty way. I guess I'll have to trim it down further, but I wanted it to grip the corners. I think the pad was a little expensive for what I got. June 12, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very substantial and well made I wasn't sure what to expect with the five rugs of varying size that I bought (actually I bought one and then upon seeing it was high quality, bought the rest) but was pleasantly surprise with the quality and the value. They were just perfect for what I needed and the delivery was very prompt. May 20, 2011
