3 Tips for Choosing the Chair Mat for Your Home or Office


1. Determine your floor type and/or carpet thickness.

For hard floors, you will want a non-studded chair mat. Non-studded chair mats feature a textured surface to prevent slipping and scuffing and are perfect for protecting hardwood, vinyl, or tile floors.

If you have carpeted flooring, then you will want a studded chair mat. Generally, the thicker your carpet, the thicker and heavier you want your chairmat to be. A thicker mat will prevent “sinking” on high-pile and deep loop carpets, and it will allow your chair to move around more smoothly.

2. Select the size you need.

This one is fairly self-explanatory. You should measure the area where you want your new chair mat, and select the appropriate size.

You will want to consider how much room you want to move around in your chair and whether you want a lip that goes under the desk to protect the carpet from stains.

3. Consider the size of the person who will using the chair mat.

The heavier the person using the chair mat the thicker you want the mat to be. This is especially important with thick carpets. You don't want your mat to sink into the carpet, making it difficult to move around in your chair.
