How to Use Felt Chair Bottoms to Protect Floors
If you are clean out of adhesive felt discs and need a quick fix to protect your floors from chair bottom scratches, you won’t have to look any further than the felt rag bag. You can make chair leg bottoms quickly and easily using a piece of felt and a rubber band. It may not look pretty but will protect your floors until you can pick up the adhesive bottoms that are easier to hide.
Count the number of chair leg bottoms that need to be covered.Most likely, four per chair if you are trying to calculate a large number of chairs.
Gather felt pieces.You will need enough felt to cover each chair leg. Purchase pre-cut felt sheets or you can simply pull remnants from your felt bag for use.
Measure felt to fit chair bottoms.If you are working with an 81/2x11 pre-cut sheet, measure the felt into thirds (using your ruler and pencil). Follow the ruler with your pencil to create three distinct pieces.
Cut along the pencil lines.The cuts don’t have to be perfect, but make sure you end up with three strip pieces.
Fold felt in half and then place on the bottom of one chair leg.Center the felt piece so you have even overhang surrounding the bottom of the leg.
Twist and affix your rubber band around the felt overhang and secure it to the leg.Twist and tie band as many times as needed for the best fit.
Complete felt bottoms for the chair and then use.The felt bottoms should protect your floors until you can purchase a more attractive protection system.
QuestionMy chairs have a C-shaped bottom (instead of four legs). What can I put on them to protect my new laminate flooring?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerWhatever you want. Self-adhesive pads are really easy, but they don't last long. Screw-ins are great and replaceable as needed, but you have to do actual work. The plastic pads do work, but nothing yet beats the felt. You can cut, shape, and attach the felt to any kind of chair bottom.Thanks!
QuestionWhy does the felt keep sliding off my new recliner even with new pads?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou might need to get screw-on felt pads. They aren't forever, but they stay on until they wear out and then you just replace them. Buy a bunch so it's harder to procrastinate when they need replacing.Thanks!
Things You’ll Need
- When winding the rubber band around the leg, make sure you continue to twist and wind until the band won’t twist anymore. If the band is too loose the felt may become dislodged.
- If the felt bottoms pick up ink or crayon on the floor, simply remove the felt, turn it inside out and replace (the crayon or ink will only stain and floor and is not easily removed from the felt).
