Cushioned Rug Pad for Hard Floors is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful feel under the feet! We like the added thickness of this rug pad as it is now in my husband's study on a concrete floor. He is very satisfied with it. He can roll his office chair around on it, the rug, and a chair pad and it has not moved. When I am in that room in my bare feet, it feels great underneath them. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase I love this rug pad, I have purchased one for all my area rugs it is well worth paying a little extra for great quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big difference with the cushioned rug pad. Well worth the price. I purchased the rug pad for the area rug which was also purchased from Ballard. What a difference it made. I'm glad I spent the extra money on the pad. I plan on using the cushioned pad under all my area rugs. I've been very happy with all my purchases from Ballard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference this cushy rug pad made under my new rug! I bought a 5x8 Merida Indoor/Outdoor Rug from Ballard for my new kitchen tile floor. I had the rug on the floor and walked on it for a few days. It was a soft rug and felt fine. Then I put down the cushioned rug pad for hard floors under the rug. What a difference! It is like walking on a soft marshmallow now. It most definitely gives it a cushy feeling. The pad is a so much nicer version of the ones you get in other retail stores. It is really top quality. The rug has not slipped once on top of the pad. I did not have to trim the pad either. It was a perfect fit under the rug. I am so glad I purchased this rug pad. It does make a big difference under the rug!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Surprise I ordered this rug for a dark room to brighten it. I didn't know if it would actually achieve the desired results until I received it. What a pleasant surprise to see how well it brightens the room and yet maintains a quiet mood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This rug pad is working nicely under the rug. The rug is a round rug, and is in our foyer. We were concerned about it staying in place in a high-traffic area. It seems to be holding the rug in place very nicely. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from homeown This rug pad provided great cushioning for my rugs on hardwood floors. Its thicker than other pads I have purchased in the past.
Date published: 2013-03-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! I ordered a rug and the rug pad at the same time; the rug arrived first so I decided to go ahead and roll it out and wait until the rug pad arrived. The rug pad arrived a week later and boy, the rug feels much softer and more cushiony. We have tigerwood hardwood flooring - no issues with slippage or shifting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! These rug pads not only keep the rug in place but are super cushy and make walking on the rug super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! The rug pad fits the area rug just right, and in a high traffic area no more slipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this rug pad! I purchased two of these rug pads for the rugs under my tables. They are thick and hold up really well to chairs with casters. They are definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great rug pad As fas a rug pads go, this is great. I use it under a runner in my laundry room and the rug won't budge thanks for the extra-sticky pad. It's thick enough so it gives the runner a little cushion. Highly recommend.
Date published: 2012-08-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Great cushion and no slippage. I went ahead and ordered this suggested rug pad with my new indoor/outdoor la poeme II rug and it's perfect. Adds the cushion I wanted, haven't had the rug move at all (in a walk in closet where we kick off shoes, get dressed and move around quite a bit) and protects my new hardwood floors. When my mom saw the rug pad before I put it down she commented on what a nice quality rug pad it was. I thought they were all pretty much the same, but in her experience, she thought this one was much better quality than ones you might buy in hardware stores, department stores, etc. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cushiony Rug Pad This rug pad is a perfect pad to compliment my recently purchased Catherine rug. The pad keeps rug from sliding and gives a nice cushion to the rug. I highly recommend this product especially when making the investment in new rugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable!!! The natural fibers of this product blend in with our decor... very comfortable to walk on and seems quite durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made rug, met all our expectations. This is the second rug we have purchased from Ballard Designs. The first rug we purchased several years ago and we were very pleased when it arrived, as we were with our most recent purchase. Both rugs were well represented in the catalog and looked as we expected when we opened up the packaging. The quality of both rugs is very good, well made with excellent pile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rug cushino for hardwood floors This rug cushion adds a lot of cushioning--much more than others of this type. I was skeptical that it would be much different than the standard store-bought rug pads, but I was very impressed. We are using it under a thin jute/natural fiber rug and it has made a big difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rug enhancer.. Makes lots of difference in the comfort and certainly "locks" the carpets in place..We really like the rugs too!
Date published: 2011-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from huge difference in how rug feels If you get a rug pad from a big box store at about the same price they are typically thin and make little difference. Ballard rug pads are excellent and make a comfy cushion for your area rugs and it is reported that they prolong the life of your rugs as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality This pad provides nice cushioning for our hall runner. Our mud hall gets lots of traffic, but the pad keeps the runner in place.
Date published: 2011-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I order a rug and ordered this pad as an after thought, I am so glad I did. This provides a really soft cushion when walking on the rug, it makes it feel like you are walking a really nice thick carpet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A rug pad that works I have used several rug pads on my newly refinished wood floors. The flooring manufacturer recommended against using anything with rubber. This mat has greater cushioning and less slip of the runner that it is under. It is very comfortable under foot and makes the indoor/outdoor runner very comfortable under the area from my range, across to the sink and dishwasher.
Date published: 2016-07-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than others I've tried I rate the Cushioned Rug Pad for Hard Floors as Good vs Excellent only because I haven't had it on the floor under the rug long enough to be sure it's an excellent. But it's great so far--thicker than most which makes the rugs feel really cushy and helps to prevent the rugs from sliding on the hardwood. I wish it came in longer lengths such as 10' or 12'.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from godd descent pad we used this pad in our laundry room onder and indoor outddor rug purchase here. works great.. the only improvement I can suggest is that that they can be made more true to size for the rugs so you dont have to cut much...
Date published: 2012-08-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice quality and appearance I like the quality and appearance of both my rug and pag however, the rug seems to shift off the pad and often needs to be repositioned so the white pad underneath does not show. Would love to know a solution for keeping it in place.
Date published: 2012-05-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable to Walk On. I ordered these to go under the two runners that I purchased from Ballards, and they fit perfectly under them. They are very comfortable to walk on, but I still find the runners slide once in a while when you walk on them. I would have liked this not to happen, as it makes it a little dangerous. Besides this, I still have problems with the ends of each carpet runner's ends not staying flat, and myself and dog tripping over the edges. Previous to using these carpets I laid them out flat with a heavy chair holding down the ends for 48 hours, and they looked okay, but they still curl up.
Date published: 2012-04-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Provides great cushioning and grip The rug pad provides great cushioning for my rug runner and grips the floor well, however the rug moves on the rug pad whenever someone walks on the rug and I am constantly moving the rug so that it covers the rug pad completely.
