I have used polyurethane casters, thermoplastic rubber wheel casters and also have used felt casters, based on my personal experience I personally believe that felt casters are the best for hardwood floors.
So, what are the best felt casters to use on your hardwood flooring? Well, I’m only going to recommend the felt casters that I personally use myself on my office chair.
The reason I’m going to recommend these felt casters is simple because I have been using and abusing them for over 3 months now and they’ve never given me any issues.
The felt casters that I’m talking about are called Floor Felt Caster Protectors by Madica and they do a great job in preventing my office chair from damaging and scratching or leaving marks on my hardwood floors.
Why do I recommend these felt casters?
The reason I’m recommending these felt casters is because I have tried quite a few different material casters such as polyurethane casters and thermoplastic rubber wheel casters but what really worked best for me were the felt casters.

They kind of slows down the movement of the chair but I honestly don’t have a single regret from buying these just because these casters do exactly what I needed.
What are the things that I don’t like about these casters?
They slow down the movement of the chair, maybe by 40% percent but they do still roll nicely, that is the only thing I didn’t like about these casters.
The only thing I can tell you is that, there is no such thing as a perfect product, these felt casters are also not perfect but they freaking works way better than the other felt casters I have used.
I have used at least 3 different felt casters that I bought from amazon but the Floor Felt Caster Protectors By Madica got to be by far the best felt casters I have ever used on my office chair.
I have recommended these casters to my wife, my wife works from home and her office has laminate hardwood floors, she has been using these felt casters for more than 2 weeks and she told me that she loves them.
If my wife loves these casters than I’m very positive that you are going to love them as well, give these a try… you really don’t have nothing to lose since they don’t cost a lot of money.
Does the felt casters slow down the movement of the chair?
To be honest with you, yes… these casters will slow down the movement of the chair by at least 40% percent. but they roll nicely.
What made me buy these felt casters was the customer reviews…
At first, I was very skeptical about buying these but after reading the customer reviews I bought them since a lot of people who have hardwood floors were also recommending them.
If other people are also recommending them under the reviews than you better give them a try and see if they work for you.

What are the things that you need to know before buying these felt casters?
The box brig 5 pairs of covers…
Do these felt casters work will ikea chairs?
I have 3 office chairs that I got from Ikea and these casters fits perfectly.
Please note: I’m pretty sure that these casters will not work or fit on all Ikea chairs, so you need to carefully measure the hole.
The only thing I can tell you is that, these felt casters fit into 7/16 hole only… I hope that helps.
How many casters does the package have?
There are 5 casters on the box.
Please note: the package cannot be broken up, you cannot buy 4 or 3…
Can you use these felt casters on your bed?
Lol, I think you will need to contact the manufacture to get the right answer to that...
But I personally believe that the stem on these casters were only meant to be used or compatible with standards office chairs.
I could be wrong though… you can just ask the manufacture to get the most accurate answer to this question… the manufactures contact information is on the product page on amazon.
How much does these casters cost?
Will these felt casters roll well on all types of hardwood floors?
Yes. these work on all types of hardwood floor.
They will slow down the rolling movement by 40% percent but I have been using these for a few months now and they perfume very well. I don’t have any complains.
Can you use these casters on ceramic tile flooring or marble floor?
I honestly don’t know, I have been using these on hardwood floors… so I cannot really answer that question.
I personally believe that these should also work on both marble floors and ceramic tile floors though simple because they also work on vinyl hardwood floor.
Where to buy these felt casters for a much cheaper price?
Are these available offline?
Not really, I don’t know of any hardware or local store that is selling these felt casters, you need to buy them online from amazon.
I also bought these from amazon, they were delivered on time, I’m very happy with my purchase.
