Best high quality rug pad for soundproofing

Best high quality rug pad for soundproofing

Hey guys, about 4 months ago, my wife asked me to find her a rug pad for sound absorption.

Well, I ended up trying 5 different rug pads that really didn’t do the job when it comes to sound proofing.

After wasting a lot of money trying to impress my wife with the best rug pad for soundproofing, I finally found a rug pad that did the job.

So, if you are here wondering which rug pad to buy for sound proofing, then you came to the right place.

There are quite a lot of different rug pads to choose from these days but you need to be very careful when shopping for a rug pad, simple because most rug pads were not designed for sound proofing.

So, which rug pad do I recommend for sound proofing?

Based on my personally experience, the rug pad that does the job when it comes to sound proofing is the RUGPADUSA 1/2 Thick Felt - Cushioning Rug Pad .

I have tried about five different rug pads and none provided sound proofing until I tried the RUGPADUSA.

My wife is using the RUGPADUSA on her home office and she loved it within 2 days because as it did exactly what she wanted.

When you read the RUGPADUSA description, they also promise that their rug pad is the best in the market when it comes to Sound absorption.

I also bought one for my home office as well, to help keep my office area rug from slipping and it does an amazing job when it comes to keeping the rug from moving plus it also makes the area rug super comfy.

Out of all the five rug pads I bought, the RUGPADUSA is 10 times better when it comes to sound proofing.

Another thing that I love about it is that, it doesn’t have any bad chemical smells that the other rug pads had.

This rug pad doesn’t smell, it doesn’t have odor and also add cushioning to my office area rug to make it comfier, plus it also makes my area rug look a lot more expensive and stylish.

After being disappointed with the rug pads that I bought, I stumbled upon a YouTube video that recommended the RUGPADUSA.

After watching that video, I went to amazon to first read the customer reviews just to hear what other people were saying about it.

Well. I was very impressed and amazed by the reviews since a lot of people were also highly recommending this rug pad for sound absorption.

So, what made me buy this rug pad was because of the customer reviews since a lot of people were also highly recommending it for sound proofing.

This rug pad has quite a lot of positive reviews, which means it really does what it promises on its description.

The only thing that I will promise you about this rug pad is that, you are going to love it, if my wife loved it than I’m pretty sure that you are going to love it as well simple because it does work when it comes to sound proofing.

What are the things that I love about this rug pad?

  • By far the best rug pad when it comes to sound proofing
  • It keeps area rugs from slipping
  • It doesn’t damage the floor over time, I have laminate floor in my office and some rug pads left residue marks
  • It adds cushioning to my office area rug, it makes the rug a lot soft and comfy
  • The cushioning also makes the area rug looks a lot more expensive lol
  • It is 1/2-inch-thick which means it won’t add too much height on your rugs
  • It doesn’t have any chemical smells
  • It is easy to clean, you can spot clean it with just water
  • It easy to maintain as well
  • It doesn’t discolor the floor
  • It doesn’t leave any residue marks on the floor
  • It easy to resize, it is not too hard, you can cut it by just using scissors, you won’t need any special tools to resize it
  • It easy to apply

What are the things that you need to know before buying this rug pad?

The only important thing that you need to know is that, make sure to cut your rug pad about one inch less than your rug size on all four sides so it can remain hidden.

How much does this rug pad cost?

It not expensive but also not cheap, it affordable, anyone can buy it without breaking the bank…

For me, buying this rug pas was worth it, I don’t have a single regret from spending my money on it, my wife loves it and I love it… even my two German shepherd dogs love this rug.

Since the day I started using this rug pad under my office area rug, my two dogs love to take a nap and sleep on my office on top of the rug.

The reason my dogs love sleeping on the rug is because it feels soft and comfy because of the rug pad underneath, this rug pad is amazing.

Sometimes it feels like my dog loves this rug pad more than I do lol…

What are the things that I do not like about this rug pad?

Well, I honestly don’t have any complains about this rug pad.

My office is upstairs, on top of my daughter’s bedroom, she used to complain about noise but that has not happened since the day I started using this rug pad under my office area rug… so I honestly don’t have anything that I do not like about it.

Where can you get this rug pad for a much cheaper price?

I got it from amazon for a much reasonable price… and it was delivered on time straight to my door… so I’m very happy with my purchase plus it hasn’t given me any issues.



Hey Durbany, great article thanks. I really love the way you write lol.

Just bought this rug pad from amazon but haven’t received it yet, maybe I’ll get it tomorrow because I have prime member ship.

I just wanted to thank you for writing this post, a lot of website are recommending shitty poor quality rug pads just to make a quick buck.

I recently stumbled upon an article that recommended a rug pad that they claimed it was for sound proofing, I bought it and it was garbage on top of that it smelled pretty bad.

After reading your article, I checked the RUGPADUSA reviews just to hear what other people were saying, well it seems like a lot of people are recommending this rug pad.

I guess that means it worth trying it, I just hope it does prevent noise.

I bought this rug pad for my son, his room is up stairs and he makes a lot of noise, so I’m hopping this rug pad will help keep the noise from coming to the downstairs.

Thanks for writing this post, it really means a lot. Cheers.


Don’t worry bro, it will definitely help with noise absorption, I use this rug pad on my home office area rug and it does the job very well. Thanks for leaving a comment it really means a lot to me, god bless you.

this rug pad was designed for sound absorption, you don’t have anything to worry about. It not cheap but it does the job.

I also tried five rug pads that didn’t work, the RUGPADUSA is the only rug pad that worked when it comes to sound proofing that is why I highly recommend it, you won’t have any regret from buying it bro.


I wanted to buy a mohawk rug pad but than decided to get the RUGPADUSA as you recommended and I’m very happy with my purchase.

The only thing that I kinda didn’t like about this rug pad was that it doesn’t have any backing, but other than that I really like it.

I have vinyl floor in my dining room, the rug pad that I was using before kind of damaged the floor, it left residue marks on the floor but that hasn’t happened with the RUGPADUSA.

I’m thinking about getting another one for the area rug that is on the bedroom just to make the rug comfy.


Well you definitely should get another one for your bedroom area rug because it adds cushioning to the rug without adding too much height, it definitely does make the rug a lot comfy.


I have been living with my gf for more than 4 years now, she is a control freak, she is very stingy with money.

Well, we had an argument after I bought this rug pad without telling her.

Well, she told me that buying this rug pad was a stupid decision because it was expensive, but guess what? After having this rug pad for 5 days, she told me that buying this rug pad was the best thing I ever did this year lol.

If my gf loves it than anyone looking for a high-quality rug pad to help with sound absorption should get thig rug pad because it really does work when it comes to sound proofing.


Lol, bro, this is got to be by far the funniest comment I’ve ever received on this blog lol.

I’m glad that your stingy gf also liked it, cheers bro. I’m glad that argument didn’t lead to a break up… make sure to include your gf even on smaller purchases just to avoid arguments in the future.


Hey Durbany, I bought the rug pad that you recommended and it was delivered today, but I’m not sure which side goes down? I have engineered hardwood floors, thanks


Hi, how are you doing? Hope you are doing well…

So, to answer your question, the softer side is what should face the floor, but both sides are not harmful, both sides won’t ruin your engineered floors over time.

When I first got this rug pad, I also wondered the same thing, the soft plusher side should face the floor.

This rug pad doesn’t have any backing, so it really doesn’t matter which side faces the floor but based on my personal experience, I would advice you to make sure that the *softer side faces the floor*.


This rug pad is not available in Ghana, I’m from Ghana and I need a rug pad that is sound proof, what can I do? This rug pad does not ship to Ghana, I tried buying it from amazon, what can I do?


I’m sorry to disappoint you but it doesn’t ship to any country in Africa right now, can’t you look for something similar in the nearest shops or local stores?

I can give you the RUPADUSA manufacture website but I also don’t think they ship to AFRICA, im really sorry that I couldn’t help you bro.


I’ve been looking for a rug pad that is soundproof for almost a week now, I found this article after searching on google, I’ll definitely buying it today, thanks.

But I have a question, will it slip? Because on your post you said that it doesn’t have any backing. I need a rug pad that will keep area rugs in place and soundproof at the same time.


This is thick felt, it doesn’t slip or slide, I also have it under my office area rug and it does keep the rug from slipping, so I wouldn’t worry.

It doesn’t slip even though it doesn’t have any non-skid backing… it will definitely help keep your rugs in place because it is thick felt.


At first, I thought this rug pad was kind of expensive but after I’ve had it for two weeks, I’m glad that I bought it, buying it was worth it, great investment, it helps a lot when it comes to minimizing noise. I highly recommend it as well.


I glad you loved it bro…
