I'm getting a new engineered wood floor fitted next week and have an existing sofa with castor wheels at each corner. What's the best protection from damaging the floor? I don't want to put a mat under the sofa.

  • Hello, and welcome to Stack Exchange. Must the sofa be able to roll? Oct 6, 2016 at 10:49

There are numerous types of furniture cups to cushion a floor against castors and legs.

Or you could just remove the castors.

  • That is fine thank you. I think I'll put small pieces of carpet under each corner. Especially as i will have to move the sofa from time to time. Many thanks for all your help. Oct 7, 2016 at 14:50
  • A fine solution. Just be sure that the carpeting gives you enough grip so that the couch does not slide every time somebody sits on it
