Pad for Rug on Hardwood Floor
I've read various threads about the best pad to put under a hardwood floor, and felt ones seem to be highly recommended. Our oak floors are still curing but will soon be ready to put a rug in front of the front door (inside) and need to get a pad. All of the rug pads seem quite expensive, plus most are larger than what I need for the rug. Also, It has to be pretty thin in order for the door to be able to open over the door and pad. Would it work to simply go to a fabric store and buy the yardage I need of felt there and use it for the pad? I've heard and read about some bad results using other types of pads, so I'd like something I can be fairly confident won't mar the finish.
