Do I Need a Rug Pad?

Posted in: Rug Care & Restoration Rugs: The Basics

Yes, high quality rug pads are essential to the life of your Oriental rug!
 Not only do they keep the rug from slipping but they give the rug body and stability that improves the look of your Oriental rug and increases its life.  At King’s House we only recommend and sell the highest quality pad made with heat set rubber. These high quality pads do not disintegrate and leave residue on your floor the way other pads will over time.  We custom cut all of our pads to perfectly fit your carpet. Our delivery and expert installation is complimentary.

You should not use a rug pad with an outdoor rug.

ABOUT ORIENTAL RUG EXPERT CHRISTIN TERRELL

“Each rug has a story.” To Christin Terrell, it’s more than just a clever line—it’s the reason she comes into work every day. Because where the rest of us just see rich, beautiful colors and intricate patterns, Christin sees every superstition, every ancient custom, and every silent prayer woven into the rugs of King’s House. The beauty of their origins is what Christin loves most about our rugs: “Immersing yourself in the where, the who, and the why … I can’t imagine anything more beautiful.”


The King’s House buying experience goes well beyond simply rolling up a rug and sending you on your way. After all, an Oriental rug is an investment and an heirloom work of art. First, we offer complimentary  consultations by appointment: that way, we can help you find the perfect rug for your home and lifestyle, based on architecture, furnishings, measurements—and, of course, the style you’re seeking. Plus, we also allow our local clients to take rugs on approval before making their final purchase decision, including free delivery and installation of the rug in your home. 

King’s House is also proud to offer USPAP-certified appraisals, specialized rug cleaning, repair, and museum-quality restorations in Birmingham, Alabama. We welcome inquiries from out of state clients as well. Give us a call at 205-244-1933 or send us an email.
