No money to buy new furniture? Change the layout of your home to make your space feel refreshed again! However, constant shifting of furniture can be damaging to your hardwood floor or tiles. Use any of these 3 solutions to minimize floor damages!
Lift Them Up
If you usually push your furniture in place, stop doing that! Pushing or dragging causes the most damage to your floor. Other than that, you also do not want your HDB neighbor living in the unit just below yours to come knocking on your door for the noise. Lift them up and put them in place would prevent floor damages and also damages to your furniture, especially if it’s a piece of wooden furniture. However, this usually requires another buddy to help you with the shifting of furniture.
Use a Rug or Carpet
For furniture such as coffee tables, sofas and armchairs, you can place a rug or a carpet underneath it to add layers and texture to your interior. This will protect your floor in instances when someone accidentally bumps into your furniture, causing it to shift. With this protective layer, you can also push your furniture into place with a peace of mind.
Use Furniture Pads
You can find furniture pads in circles or squares, usually made of felt, cork or rubber. They can be found easily at local convenience stores, Daiso and many DIY stores such as Home-Fix. Place them at the four corners and you can shift them around without lifting them up. These pads are useful for eliminating the sound a chair makes when people stand and sit.
Alternatively, you can make your own furniture pads by recycling old clothing!
