Hardwood floor furniture protectors - recommendations?

Post by JAZZISCOOL »

Hello BH's,

Does anyone have a recommendation for hardwood floor furniture protectors?

I am using these ("super sliders") BUT they have started to come off 2 legs of a heavy piece of furniture so would prefer something more durable:

Thanks! :happy

My advice will depend in the item weight, leg shape, leg material and such. A picture would help.

FWIW, I’ve had good luck with nail on feet like below. They come in various sizes to fit your item.

Doesn't most furniture come with plastic feet on them?

I recently installed hardwood in 90% of my house and have used different kinds of pads depending on weight of furniture and or whether it gets moved around a lot(like kitchen chairs, etc).

I used these for a king size master bed frame and they work great

This for bed frame casters

These you can cut and size up for the bottoms of heavy furniture like dressers and cabinets

And these Sleeves are great for kitchen chairs- had them on for 6 months and our chairs get a lot of use

Hope this helps( if the links don’t come over properly, go to amazon and type in the B item #’s- 10 characters long)

After having pour hardwood floors refinished last year I bought these - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GN ... UTF8&psc=1\
They seem to be working great. I finally gave up on the adhesive ones.

Yes, the adhesive ones are garbage and caused damage to my floors with them coming off halfway, then smearing glue residue into the grain of the floor. Awful.

For large furniture, we have it anchored on an area rug. For dining chairs, we now have the tap in felt pads. Much better.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I will check them out.

This question is for a heavy, wood bed (the others seem to be holding on the dresser etc.)

I do think there were minimal plastic bottoms on the legs of the bed but they didn't cover the entire bottom which is why I wanted the protectors. :happy

Can't beat a rug. But not the most economical option.
Socks work well. they make some specifically for furniture legs.

We've always used the felt pads with an adhesive side. They are very inexpensive and generally work well but do need to be periodically replaced.
