In most cases, yes. A rug underlay is used to protect your flooring from scratching and prevent your rug from sliding and wrinkling. 

While King Living carpets are of high quality and designed for comfort, it is still recommended to use a rug underlay beneath your carpet for several reasons:

  1. Enhanced comfort: A rug underlay adds an extra layer of cushioning beneath your carpet, making it feel softer and more comfortable underfoot.

  2. Non-slip protection: Rug underlays provide grip and prevent your carpet from slipping or bunching, reducing the risk of accidents and ensuring that the carpet stays in place.

  3. Floor protection: A rug underlay acts as a barrier between your carpet and the floor, preventing scratches, scuffs, or stains caused by the carpet's movement or dye transfer. This is particularly important for hardwood, laminate, or delicate flooring surfaces.

  4. Noise reduction: Rug underlays can help absorb and reduce noise, providing a quieter and more comfortable environment in your living space.

  5. Improved insulation: An underlay acts as an additional layer of insulation, helping to regulate the temperature in the room and potentially reducing energy costs.

  6. Enhanced carpet durability: Using a rug underlay can help distribute weight more evenly across the carpet, reducing wear and tear in high-traffic areas and prolonging the carpet's lifespan.

  7. Easier vacuuming: A rug underlay can help your carpet stay flat and secure, making vacuuming and cleaning easier and more efficient.

In summary, using a rug underlay with your King Living carpet is recommended as it provides numerous benefits, such as enhanced comfort, non-slip protection, floor protection, noise reduction, improved insulation, enhanced carpet durability, and easier vacuuming. These factors contribute to a safer, more comfortable, and longer-lasting carpet in your living space.
