Floor Protection for Bar Stools: Keep Your Floors Looking Like New

If you want to protect your bar stools or dining chairs and extend their lifespan, it’s essential to invest in nylon glides or caps for the feet.

These small but crucial accessories can prevent scratches and damage to your floors while also making it easier to move your furniture around.

Most metal bar stools come with nylon caps that you can insert or hammer into the legs. At our store, all of our metal stools come with nylon or plastic glides, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing them separately.

For Wood or Laminate Surfaces

If you have wood or laminate floors, we recommend using stick-on felts for extra protection. You can glue these felts to the bottom of your nylon glides to create a soft barrier between your furniture and your floors. This will help prevent scratches and scuffs, and reduce noise when moving your chairs.

For Tile Floors

For tile floors or any floor with grouting or a relief, we suggest using basic or plastic nylon caps.

While felts may work well on smooth floors, they can tear off the stool on tile floors due to the indentation in the grouting.

Nylon caps, on the other hand, are durable and provide a smooth surface for your furniture to glide on without damaging your floors.

In conclusion, investing in nylon glides or caps is a small but important step you can take to protect your floors and your furniture. By using the right kind of glide or cap for your floor type, you can ensure that your chairs and stools will last for many years to come.
