Recliners and hardwood floors.....

forestgirl's picture

Our newly installed (by us!) hardwood floors are not faring well with our recliners.  How do y'all protect your floors, if indeed you use a recliner?  I put sticky-backed felt on the feet, but that didn't work.  No carpeting, even a small square piece, allowed in this livingroom, help appreciated.

Forestgirl,


Check Lee Valley.  They have anti-slip rings for bottom of feet. work great on hardwood floors.


Hope this helps.

Sounds promising, Steve.  I'll have to dig out the paper copy of their catalog, not having any luck finding them online.  Thanks!

Glue the feet to the floor?

I put the sticky back felt things on our chairs, sofa, etc when we went hardwood. They work fine for us but our floor is oiled, not a glossy film finish so any marking is harder to see.

Home Depot (in my neighborhood, at least) has a good selection of plastic like furniture glides. Theses are made of nylon or teflon or something of the sort. They are very slick. I put some on a very heavy dining cabinet (300# or so) to protect a wood floor in my clients house (glossy floors). They don't leave a mark and I could easily slide it into position against a wall.

What about rubber foot caps?  Come round or square, in various sizes.  Stay put pretty well.  Not very noticeable from a distance.

Rubber caps will prevent scratches. They will also leave stains/ marks on your floor.

Well, I guess you need to be (post #120233, reply #7 of 9)

Well, I guess you need to be creative. Cut a peice of carpet, enough to cover its feet then glue it. In that case, it should be standing with its carpet covered feet. That is a perfect way t protect your flooring.

Strips of self-adhesive felt can be bought to put on the feet of the recliner.
