Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Over My New Hardwood Floors I'm using this pad under some new rugs that are going onto my new hardwood floors. Absolutely no slipping and provides extra cushion as well. I would suggest that Ballard add a note in the product description to put the flat side down and the bumpy side against the rug. I've never used a rug pad before and had to ask customer service because I wasn't sure. I got a response back in 24 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a perfect fit we ordered this rug pad because it is designed for wood floors. we made the mistake in the past on not spending the extra money and buying a pad that ruin our floors. In addition we wanted the extra padding to go under our sea grass rug....you can definitely feel the difference. we are very happy with our choice.

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 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 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.
