Should I use a thick or thin rug pad under my rugs?

Report as

You need to use a thick rug pad under your rugs. This is because the thick pad will help prevent wear and tear on your rug and will also help protect your floor. However, before buying the padding it's good that you consult a dealer for more advice. Read more details at http://www.rugrag.com/post/Rug-Pads.aspx.

Only with wall to wall. Area rugs are meant to lay flat. Thus they should have a thin waffle type of pad or grip material.

The thickness of your rug pad depends on your actual rug. If your rug is thinner, a thicker rug pad will add the missing comfort you may want. If your rug is already on the thicker side, then a thin to medium thick rug pad will do best as not to lift the rug too high off the floor. You can see more at http:www.rugpadcorner.com/

From a professional: Use a thin waffle type padding for bound area rugs placed on hardwood floors. For wall to wall use thicker padding. Area rugs that are bound will lift off the floor and become a trip hazard if the padding is too thick. It is also not good for breathability with the hardwood. Wall to wall carpet is meant to have bounce; area rugs are not. They are meant to lay flat with no gap between the area rug and surface it is on.
