This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in December of 2016. A hard chair mat is the best way to prevent scuffing up your floors as you go about your day. The right one can also help minimize leg fatigue from rolling around the office, as it makes it easier for wheels to glide. Ideal for wood, tile and carpeted flooring, they are available in a host of designs to suit any preference. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best hard floor chair mat on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

April 03, 2019:

A hard floor chair mat should, at the very least, protect your floors from damage, but it can do so much more, like enhance your working experience and boost your decor. We chose models that do that, and more. The Floortex Cleartex Glaciermat is made of reinforced glass, which is not only sleek and stunning, but also lets your casters roll across it without facing any friction. The Anji Mountain Roll-Up Wooden looks just like hardwood floors, meaning if you want totally uninterrupted walnut (or walnut-appearing) planks wall to wall, you can have it. The Ilyapa FBA_IL is another excellent choice if you hate the idea of covering up beautiful floors — like, perhaps marble floors or decorative tile — since it is so transparent it is essentially invisible. If improved comfort is your top reason for putting a mat beneath your chair, then you'll be happy with the Floortex AFS-TEX 5000. This is a combination pack containing a simple, semi-transparent protective mat for your floors, as well as a cushioned pad for standing that you'll enjoy putting your feet on either for its massaging properties or as a footrest.
