Selecting Underlayment/Cushion 

Once you get your rug home, help keep it looking new by placing it over a quality rug cushion or underlay.

Not only will the cushion absorb shock and noise, it also will keep your rug from slipping and "creeping." There are two types of cushions to choose from, depending on where you plan to place your rug:

  • rug-over-carpet
  • rug-over-hard surface floor.

Your retailer can help you select a rug cushion or underlay for your particular need. Usually you will need to know the size of the rug, although the size of many underlayments can be adjusted by simply cutting with household shears.
