What's a good computer chair mat to get for hardwood?

Asked by Sakata (3320 points ) March 7th, 2009

I’ve got hardwood floor and the computer chair is starting to screw it up. Anyone know of a good mat I can put down to save the wood? I’ve used regular mats in the past and they get dirt under ‘em and basically turn into sandpaper underneath.

I’m thinking those mats you get to put weight lifting stuff on would do a good job of protecting your floor.

I’ve seen mats in offices that are a thin carpet-type on top with a thin rubber layer underneath. I’m thinking that might work better than the hard plastic ones. I need to get one, too. My floor is really f’ed up under my chair. :(

It may take a wee bit of assembly, but…

They make big pieces of rubber that is semi-soft. Get one of those, and then use a hard plastic floor mat with the teeth on the underside (used for carpets), by sticking the teeth into the rubber. Cut the rubber/plastic thingy to size…

This would be non-slip, but also sturdy enough to roll across.

chairmats in office depot or staples will do the job.

Just get a square floor rug and put it where you have your computer chair, then get a grippy plastic desk carpet saver like I have to keep the rug from getting damaged.
