Q:

What can you put under furniture to keep it from sliding on wood floors?

A:

Quick Answer

Use non-slip furniture floor pads or an area rug to keep furniture from sliding across wood floors. Inexpensive floor pads prevent furniture, such as couches, tables and chairs, from damaging wooden floors as they slide or shift.

Full Answer

Sitting on a couch too hard or bumping into a table can cause it to move, leading to small scratches on hardwood floors. These build up over time and cause significant damage. Before shopping for a rug, take measurements of the furniture to ensure the proper size is purchased. When shopping for furniture pads, search for those that require no glue, nails or other application agent that may further damage floors. Look for rugs and pads that feature a rubber, non-slip bottom.
