          Wish I would have known about this years ago...Our rug is on top of carpet and was constantly getting large wrinkles and becoming warped. This is amazing, keeps the rug in place. Would definitely buy again and recommend to anyone.

            It speaks well of Room & Board that they sell this rug pad: it's the same product that is recommended and sold by the best Persian rug store in the Twin Cities. I was able to save a little money by buying the largest size and cutting it up to make pads for several rugs.

              We cut the rug pad up to four small rug pads. These replace the original worn out rubber-type backing on four small rugs that work well with the existing decor and are difficult to replace.

                While difficult to cut and curved the way it comes rolled (which may or may not be the way you want to put it down) it does the job of keeping flat weave rugs in place and seems likely to last much longer than those awful rubber pads other providers most often suggest.

                      • Optimat 9'x12' Rug Pad

                        Q:

                        I'm trying to come up with a solution to adding spice to boring wall to wall (neutral light beige) apartment carpeting. Would a good rug (one of yours) over wall to wall carpeting with an Optimat pad work? Would the rug bunch up? The wall to wall carpet and existing pad is not very thick or plush. Help!

                          A:

                          For use over carpeting place the Optimat rubber side up. This will prevent buckling and provides extra grip and reduces wear to both the carpet and the rug.

                          You will need to begin with an 8x10 rug pad, then trim it to work specifically with your rug.
