This tool helps you instantly find the right size rug pad for your rug.

## How to Use the Rug Pad Size Calculator

- Enter the width of your rug in inches.
- Enter the length of your rug in inches.
- Enter the desired width of the rug pad in inches.
- Enter the desired length of the rug pad in inches.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result.

### How it Calculates

The calculator subtracts the specified padding from the rug dimensions to find the size of rug pad you need to buy:

**Pad Width:**Rug Width – Desired Pad Width.**Pad Length:**Rug Length – Desired Pad Length.

These subtracted dimensions are displayed in the “Result” box above.

### Limitations

This calculator assumes that the pad will be evenly inset from each edge of the rug. If you want uneven insets, you will need to calculate each dimension separately.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculate the Area of Your Rug

Measure the length and width of your rug (in inches) to find the total area. Input these measurements into the calculator to get an accurate area calculation in square inches.

### Determine the Size of Rug Pad Needed

Using the area of your rug, the calculator will help you determine the appropriate size of a rug pad required for your rug. This ensures that the pad fits perfectly under your rug.

### Select Round or Square Rug Pad

If you have a round rug, enter the diameter for a round pad calculation. For square or rectangular rugs, enter the length and width to get the correct pad size for your rug shape.

### Compare Rug Pad Sizes

Calculate the area and size of different rug pads to compare which one fits your rug best. This way, you can choose the most suitable pad size for your rug.

### Adjust for Custom Rug Shapes

If you have an irregularly shaped rug, measure the widest points to get accurate dimensions. Input these measurements into the calculator to find the perfect pad size for your custom-shaped rug.

### Calculate Multiple Rug Pads for Different Rugs

If you have multiple rugs of varying sizes, use the calculator for each rug to determine the right rug pad size individually. This ensures that each rug has the perfect support underneath.

### Get Recommendations for Common Rug Sizes

The calculator provides suggestions for standard rug sizes and corresponding rug pad sizes. Use these recommendations as a guide if your rug falls within typical size categories.

### Optimize Rug Pad Coverage

The calculator helps you find the ideal rug pad size that offers maximum coverage under your rug without extending beyond the rug edges. This ensures proper cushioning and grip.

### Calculate Pad Size for Runner Rugs

If you have a runner rug, measure the length and width of the runner to determine the appropriate pad size for it. Input these dimensions into the calculator for precise results.

### Plan for Rug Pad Trimming

If your rug pad is slightly larger than your rug, the calculator assists in planning for any necessary trimming. It provides accurate measurements to help you trim the pad to fit perfectly under your rug.
