The Best Rug Pad For Kilim Rugs

From comfort and all the way to increasing
durability, rug pads are definitely a must if you care about increasing your rug’s
lifespan. Therefore, no matter if you own a Kilim or any other similar rug, by using
a quality rug pad you’re going to make it completely flat and very comfortable to
walk on.

Many people actually believe they could get away with
it by purchasing just about any rug pad, but what they fail to realize is that
in time their cheap rug pad is going to wear off and that’s when they’re going to
notice the rug is not as stable as before. Therefore, to avoid this, the best choice
would be to go for a quarter inch dense rubber and needle pinched jute combination.


This is a great choice not only because of the
recycled jute, but also due to the textured surface area which easily grabs the
rug. As for the bottom, it has a natural and solid layer of rubber that is
carefully sewed on to the jute surface.

In fact, if you look closer, you’re going to notice
that the layer of rubber features a special tread pattern that helps a lot with
preventing sliding, since it easily grabs to the floor and makes it almost impossible
for the carpet to move. Because of that, selecting the right rug pad is important
not only to keep your rug flat, but also to avoid situations where you may be
in a hurry and accidentally slip on the carpet because it sits on a slippery surface
and has a poor quality or no rug pad underneath it.

As for the pad itself, it needs to have real rubber backing,
so if you find the type with sprayed on latex rubber that is (sadly) the standard
these days, you may want to steer clear from it. You can save a few dollars by
getting it, but its cons far outweigh the pros, not to mention that it won’t make
your rug as safe as when using a quality rubber rug pad that can effectively
prevent slipping accidents.

So how thick is the best rug pad for your kilim rug?
Well, at just a quarter of an inch, your rug is not only going to look brand new
(since it’s going to stay completely flat), but stepping on it will be much
more comfortable as well. You can also find rug pads that are much thicker than
1/4”, but they’re not as dense as this one and on top of that, they can also
create room for movement with your flat rug. In fact, as a kilim rug owner, one
of the things that makes these rugs so charming is their flat look, so by
getting a thicker rug pad you’d only take away one of the main things that
makes them so amazing to own.

Lastly, keep in mind that since kilim rugs aren’t perfectly
straight and are actually more tribal in nature, you have to ensure your future
rug pad is trimmed around an inch in from its dimensions on all sides.

Best Rug Pad For Needlepoint Rugs

What makes needlepoint rugs so beautiful is the fact that they are handmade and flat weave. The flat weave
gives it a great look that appears as though you had a painting on your floor. Needlepoint
rugs are thin and quite flexible, it is therefore important to have a good rug pad
that will keep them flat & wrinkle free and at the same time keep them from sliding.

Some people may ask if it is advisable to put a thick rug pad under these carpets for additional comfort. This is fine
however, avoid putting very thick rug pads because they will not keep them
flat. This is because, needlepoint rugs do not have any pile therefore do not
have substantial weight that could keep them from bulking on top of a thick,
highly cushioned pad. The best rug pad therefore is the one with a lot of non slip
function and should also have a little cushion.


The ideal rug pad for needle point rugs should be that of a combination of rubber and jute. This is because it contains
a textured surface of recycled jute that can safely grab the needlepoint rug. At
its bottom is a layer of rubber that safely grabs it to the floor. This rug pad
is therefore perfect for keeping your needlepoint rug flat and wrinkle
free and at the same time look just they way it should. Since this rug pad is needle
punched, it is dense enough to ensure that the needlepoint rug is kept still
when you are walking on it. It is only 0.25 inches thick therefore it adds
comfort without lifting the needlepoint too high off the ground/ floor.

With the perfect rug pad under your needlepoint rug, it will last for a very long time (life time). It is much easier
to vacuum it because the rug pad grabs onto it. There will be no more wrinkles
when you walk on your rug and therefore, it will remain flat giving it the best
look that a needlepoint rug should have. ANC-058B(3x5)-1

These types of rug pads also come in a various qualities. I would however recommend the one with recycled jute and a real
layer of rubber underneath. There is one with a synthetic chemical instead of recycled
jute and also sprayed on a latex rubber. This is however not recommended
because the sprays may break down leaving marks on your floor.

Benefit of Buying Cotton Area Rugs

One main material used in the manufacturing of floor rugs is cotton. While
