I have hardwood floors and recently purchased a recliner. The recliner slides around on the hardwood floor. Is there a product that will stop the recliner from sliding and more importantly stop it from scratching the floor?

Also, the bottom of the recliner is a big disc approximately 24" in diameter.

    Have you considered a rug? Worked great in a baby room for us. – JPhi1618 Dec 29 '15 at 20:11
  • it's in an odd spot for a rug and it would be next to another rug. I suppose I could just get a small piece of carpet to put under there. – tjcinnamon Dec 29 '15 at 20:16

A rug pad might work well. They can be purchased at most home stores, or online. They're cheap, and can usually be trimmed easily into any shape/size.

They're designed to prevent rugs from slipping, so should also prevent your chair from sliding around.

  • I have this readily available. Assuming there are no better solutions at menards I'll give this a shot. – tjcinnamon Dec 29 '15 at 20:52

Does the recliner have distinct "feet" under the disk?

If so, some rubber floor protecting pads under those feet should stop the scratches and the sliding:

(this one is just a representative sample, they come in many shapes, sizes, and materials)

If the entire disk contacts the floor, then how about just putting a carpet under it (with a non-slip pad under the carpet)

  • I'll swing by menards and see if they have anything. The only issue I could foresee is that there is not "feet" because it's a large disk – tjcinnamon Dec 29 '15 at 20:52

I have a similar situation in my front room. I found silicone sheets at big box and cut them into strips. Then super glued them to recliner bottom. They have been on there for 2 years with no issues. Chairs don't slide, no scratches, don't need a rug.

Put the recliner on a nice big circular rug.
