Our Best Selling Carpet Underlays
So how does this work? We have defined up to seven different needs for underlay in an average British home. These are:
No 1 Best comfort: Premium underlay products where luxurious comfort is needed and foot traffic is high (e.g. living rooms). The best we recommend is Plushwalk 12mm
No 2 Better comfort: Premium underlay products, where luxurious comfort is needed and foot traffic is low (e.g. master bedrooms). A great one is Cloud 9 Cumulus 11mm
No 3 Good comfort: Everyday comfort where foot traffic is low or infrequent (e.g. spare bedrooms). A good quality and well priced underlay is Premium 10mm
No 4 High traffic / High impact: Where foot traffic is really high (such as the hall stairs and landing) or there is a high impact from heavy furniture (typically in the dining room). Underlays with high density and recovery rates are needed for this. We recommend Super Velvet
No 5 Noise reduction: Underlays for wood and laminate flooring: extremely high density sponge underlays can reduce in-room noise by up to 30%. Recommended underlays are Super Velvet or Plushwalk 12mm which have an approx 48dB reduction!
No 6 Low tog underlays for underfloor heating: Specially designed low tog underlays are needed for underfloor heating applications. These will need to have tog ratings of less than 1, and so should be specially adapted sponge rubber. For carpet we recommend ThermalStream Carpet Underlay and for hardfloors, Thermo-Pro X Underlay
No 7 Wheelchair use, walking aids, natural floorcoverings or border carpets: Double stick crumb rubber underlays are ideal for this. We recommend Treadmore Rubber Crumb

Helps to reduce noise
A carpeted floor with an good quality underlay will act as a barrier to sound, helping you to enjoy a quieter home. They also reduce noise in rooms below.Check out the Impact Sound Reduction figures!
Carpet underlays that reduce impact sound
Peace and quiet is essential. That’s why it is often desirable to reduce impact sound, especially when the noise of footfall from upstairs rooms is causing an interruption to your home environment. If you live in a first or second floor flat, you may also wish to lower your impact sound, as this can make a real difference to the quality of life of those living below you.
An easy way to reduce impact sound is by choosing a good quality underlay. Whether you have carpeted or hard wood floors, the right underlay can make a big difference.
When it comes to your carpets, underlay can help to reduce impact sound, thanks to two factors. The first is the sponginess of the underlay. The second is the thickness of the underlay. The spongier and thicker your underlay is, the more effective it will be at muffling footfall noises.
Conveniently, these factors also add up to a more comfortable underlay. Therefore, the best carpet underlays for reducing impact sound will also be the ones that provide the best comfort.

Top heat insulating carpet underlays to help you stay warm
With energy prices on the increase carpet underlay can increase energy efficiency,this is at the forefront of our minds more than ever when it comes to our homes. Carpet underlay is not only an important consideration for the environment, but one that can also have an impact on your bank balance and your comfort levels as well.
A modern underlay can make a big difference when it comes to improving your home’s insulation and therefore improving its energy efficiency. So how do you know which carpet underlay product is best suited to your needs?
There are a variety of ways to measure the warmth rating of an underlay product, including its thermal conductance. This information is then converted into a tog value to help you easily identify the ideal underlay for you and your home.
The tog value of the top heat insulating carpet underlay can range up to 3.13 tog. For comparison, the typical tog value of a shirt is 0.4 tog, going up to 0.6tog for a sweater and 3.0 tog for a ski outfit. Carpets typically clock in around 1.0 – 22.2 tog, with your summer duvet carrying a tog value of between 3.0 – 4.5 tog.
A carpet underlay achieves its insulating properties through two different ways. The first is the intrinsic insulation of the material itself. For example, an underlay made from rubber would be a poor conductor of heat.
The second factor is how effective the underlay is in trapping pockets of air in small bubbles. The better they do this, the better an insulator they will be. This is why lightweight underlays, such as those made from PU foam, boast a very high tog value.
Carpet uderlays with a tog of 2.5 or higher can be an ideal choice for different rooms in your home where improved insulation is required. These include bedrooms over garages or any second story room with wooden plank flooring that suffers from draughty gaps. Loft and attic conversions can also benefit from using an underlay with superior insulating qualities, as can ground floor rooms where the sub-floor is a cold stone or concrete (although a DPM will likely be required for these).
If you are looking for our warmest carpet underlay products, we recommend
High traffic / High impact: where foot traffic is really high (such as the hall stairs and landing) or there is a high impact from heavy furniture (typically in the dining room). Underlays with high density and recovery rates are needed for this. Recommended underlays include Super Velvet and Treadmore (crumb underlays with excellent recovery)

In comparison, cheaper carpet underlays, such as those made from PE foam which is not to be confused with PU foam, can actually have the opposite effect. This is because the air pockets in them act like echo chambers, amplifying the noise rather than muffling it. That’s why it’s always worth doing your research and investing in a good quality carpet underlay to preserve your home’s peace.
