Looking to protect my floor against scratches when family come round and drag my chairs across the floor.It's only really an issue in my kitchen which has a hard wood, oak flooring and has been causing me problems for a long while now.
I have tried stick on rubber / felt pads but they are useless as they fall off when anyone who actually weighs something takes a seat.
Any suggestions based on what you've maybe tried before?
I have been looking to try different brands, but I think a different style is what I need more than anything after speaking to a few people.
We have standard legs, fairly thick but are filled so must have something that goes over it like a cup almost.
After searching online it appears there are a few places out there that 'specialize' in this type of thing, this one (https://www.vital-parts.co.uk/furniture--chair-feet-18-c.asp) looks promising but has anyone else used a similar service, are they just push fit?
Thanks for the advice about Wilko's, I may check them out today as im going in to town later anyway.
Magi-glide are your friends. Silicone pads you can either nail onto (eg dining table and chairs) and stick on ones.
They are FABULOUS.
First found them in a Indian Restaurant in Bakewell - they made the chairs so quiet and smooth I upended one whilst waiting for my curry . Seriously, seriously good. Think I have converted everyone I know to them now.
My kitchen floor has withstood the battering from 2DCs scraping furniture for 5 years now. Not a scratch and no wince-inducing noises. The nail on ones are better at staying put so go for those where you can.
