Reduce The Slip Sliding With RugPadCorner Review

2014 October 8


Slip Sliding Awaaaaayyyy…

Simon & Garfunkel gets stuck in my head in the BEST way.

“You know the nearer your destination the more you’re slip sliding away-ayyy.”

You’re welcome for that brain blast.

My living room… When the rugs have been straightened.

Every time I walk around the corner THERE they are.
Slip sliding away.

My rugs slip and bunch and rumple no matter what I do. Even with the pad they came with my rugs on hardwood slip around like they are waltzing to a song only they can hear. It is a flimsy pad more like the lining you would use in a cupboard than really meant to hold a gorgeous heavy wool rug in place.


I especially hate that the rugs in our living room (below) seem to get up in the middle of the night and inch their way across the room. I think they get lonely and wish to move closer to the other rugs in the house. Otherwise how to explain the phenomenon? We place one rug UNDER our couch legs and it STILL slowly creeps toward the kitchen.

Maybe house rugs respond to a special woven magnetic pull?

Seriously? Who moves the rugs around?

Add to the mysterious marching rugs the fact that we just got a new puppy!


All the Cuteness. #OscarOctober. 


We have the perfect rug storm: teenagers dashing through the house, manic puppy ripping & uprooting chairs (not-to-mention flinging rugs) and that weird magnetic pull of the living room rug-on-carpet inching and bunching and sliding the rugs away from where they are meant to stay put!


I seriously thought there was no solution for the rug stayinplace conundrum.

I was WRONG.

Buy High Quality Rug Pads & Prevent the Slip Sliding!

Turns out there are very nice rug pads out there if you know where to look.
Sorry, Walmart or even Amazon doesn’t sell them. is a specialty rug pad online store that sells high quality (ACTUALLY keep your rug in place) kind of rug pads. The Ultra Premium rug pad has a purple rubber backing I can really only describe as magical. Even my giant wool rug now stays in place on hard wood.

The magical purple rubber backing!

My front entry natural fiber rug came with a built in ‘rubber’ backing… but please, it might as well have come with a slippery coating because yeah. NO. Now? With the magic purple rubber and the felt upper portion of this rug pad, it literally has only slipped maybe a half an inch. NOT the rug pad mind you. The pad never moved. The rug on top shimmied ever so slightly after a full week.

After a full week, this is how much the rug had shifted. THAT’s IT.


I’ve been watching my living room rug-on-carpet pad the last week as well. It got a slightly different treatment. This special rug pad is made specifically to block the magnetic pull of the creeping rug while in carpet. After a week? Same thing. Only moved about half an inch people!!! Again, just the rug itself. The rug pad stayed in place.

My 4th rug is a cheap runner we use like grandma protecting her couch with plastic. It sits angled at the back door where messy children and WET DOG run in and out 1,000 times a day. It also sits half on hardwood and half on carpet. So I asked the geniuses at RugPadCorner what to do with this confused rug? They suggested sticking to the magic purple backing of the Ultra Premium since it wouldn’t hurt the portion that will rest on hardwood.

I’m less impressed with the runner’s ability to quit slip sliding. But it IS much improved and I can deal with straightening a heavily used rug every so often. Once again, the rug pad stays in place. The RUG is the problem.

I wonder if I can just staple the sucker to the pad?
Will anyone notice??

PRICING: order the standard rug pad size larger than your rug measures. And then give the exact measurements of your rug and they cut your pad just slightly smaller than the dimensions. That’s it. If your rug is exactly a standard size you can either have them trim it slightly or leave as is.

  • An 8X10 Ultra Premium rug pad costs $138 (under $120 with discount)

The flimsy rug pads I’ve purchased in the past (useless wasted money I might add) were at least $50-60. I’m pretty sure the extra cost of a premium pad from RugPadCorner will save you exactly the additional amount of annoyance equal to the additional cost.

From now on Simon & Garfunkel can stay in my Spotify Station.
What? Am I the only one with a full station devoted to S&G?


Disclosure: I was asked by RugPadCorner if I had any rugs that had a hard time minding their spots. And I was all… YES. And they were all… can we send you a few rug pads at no charge? And will you test them and if you agree they are the best rug pads you’ve ever seen would you be willing to tell the world about them? And I said… fer shur. And my teens and my dog helped.
And I HATE that I’ve gone this long with crappy rug pads. The end.

I chose to write this post because I genuinely give RugPadCorner my GoodNCrazy Seal of Approval.
If my opinion changes. I will let you know.

    I need this! There’s nothing like stepping onto a carpet and have IT slide and you go tumbling (warning for if you ever come to my house). Now, since you have a new puppy, tips for getting doggie ahem… treats… out of the carpeting? Cute puppy!

    The puppy cuteness that is going on here is too much. I miss being able to have a dog. But hurray for not having to straighten up the rugs fifty million times a day! And I would totally try stapling the rug to carpet pad and see if there was any more difference. If the staples are small enough, nobody will know they’re there.

    I am ALWAYS adjusting area rugs, it’s almost funny. We’re pretty active so I know that has a huge part to do with it. I love how bright your room is too!

    Did you see me almost break my neck this morning when the area rug in my bathroom slipped?! I need to invest in this immediately.
