Clever chair mats with spiky bottoms
These mats will happily sit under your chair, protecting the carpet from the wear and tear associated with the constant shuffling of chair wheels. We’ve all seen those shiny circles left behind on the carpet when there’s an office move-around. What makes these mats different from a standard rug, is of course, these chair mats aren’t furry and luxurious between your toes, but they do have spikes on the bottom which allow them to grip the carpet; think of it as working like a large, flat golf shoe.
As well as dimensions, further options are provided by the choice of whether a flat square chair mat or a chair mat with a slight lip around the edge is your preferred option. The mats with small lips make it harder for people to inadvertently roll off of it on their chairs onto the unprotected flooring beneath.
