The 7 Best Rug Pads of 2022
Who it is for: People who want a rug pad that can be used as anti-slip protection for other furniture.
For whom it is not: Homeowners who are worried that PVC will damage their floors.
The Veken Non-Slip Rug Pad is an affordable, no-frills pad made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a material that provides strong grip and is water resistant. It’s a great option for thin, flimsy rugs that tend to bunch and slip, as well as rugs placed in high-traffic areas of your home. In addition to the PVC material, the underpad features a denser pattern compared to similar models, allowing for better grip on your floors.
However, its low price comes at a cost. PVC contains chemicals that can penetrate your floor and potentially cause damage over time, especially if you have wooden floors. This product is also not compatible with a wide range of floor types including concrete, stone, carpet, vinyl, acrylic, lacquer and anything porous, refinished or heated. . As such, this option is best for renters and those with tile or laminate floors. One cool thing about this underpad is that it also acts as an adhesive for your furniture. If you have cushions that don’t stay in place on your chair or sofa, or a mattress that tends to slip in your bed frame, this product will help you keep them in place.
