If the floor space around your desk looks like you’ve been navigating your home office on roller skates, a quality office chair mat may just be your next best solution. These mats are designed to protect your floors against the endless wear and tear, extending the life of both your flooring and desk chair. With so many ranges of sizes, shapes, and materials to choose from it can be hard to figure out if you’ve made a lasting purchase. To help you out, we’ve curated a list of our favorite office mats of 2023!
Thick, heavy and highly durable this dual office chair mat can easily be mistaken for glass. The mat is not bendable or foldable, which means its solid structure won’t curl or slide around. It is also suitable for hard floors such as tile, timber, laminate and low pile carpets.
Specially designed to withstand high pressure from the weight of the chair, MuArts provides a one-year warranty. This makes it a perfect choice for those who are purchasing an office chair mat for the first time or are weary if their purchase will withstand the test of time.
Designed to protect hard surfaces such as laminate, timber, tile and hardwood this mat is just big enough to protect the area around which your chair moves. This way it doesn’t hinder the office design and you don’t have to move anything around to position it correctly. Aside from being free from phthalates and BPA, the material is durable and made to handle the pressure of the chair movement without wearing.
When dirty, simply wipe it with a wet cloth.
This chair mat has a softer top that reduces chair noise on hard floors while still providing efficient movement and floor protection. Made from polyester fiber, it is non-toxic and resistant to fading and scratching. And since it is ideal for all hard surfaces—including tile floors, laminate, concrete and smooth stone—it’s a great choice for those who need to purchase multiple mats for their space.
Featuring a film on the bottom of the mat that can be removed for additional security, cleaning is as simple as vacuuming your mat or throwing it in the washing machine.
If you’re looking for something to protect low pile carpets at your office, a school or a healthcare facility these chair mats are a great option. Ideally sized for protecting floors beneath standard or large wheeled office chairs, their smooth top surface allows for an easier gliding experience. Free of odor and Greenguard Certified, you can rest assured that your working environment is as healthy as it is functional.
While only suitable for indoor use, Dimex offers a one-year limited warranty.
This mat is ideal for use on hard floors including concrete, wood, laminate, tile and smooth stone surfaces. Just big enough for basic chair movement around the desk, it won’t be intrusive or change the look of your office. And since the PVC chair mat is durable and won’t curl, crack or discolor you can rest assured that your floors will be kept in great condition.
If you have pets that like to lie on the mat, you can also breathe easy knowing this office chair mat is free of toxins and doesn’t contain any phthalates, cadmium, tin or lead.
If the mat does not have rubber nubs underneath to hold it in place, get a non-slip rubber pad to place underneath. Although you can use tape or double-sided tape, this will leave residue on the floor and damage it in the long run.
Anti-fatigue mats are generally small mats used at a standing desk. These can be combined with an office chair mat so that the anti-fatigue area is pushed under the desk while using the chair.
Tempered glass chair mats are incredibly durable and scratch resistant. While they can get scratched if there is sand or other hard dirt on the chair wheels, they are highly durable.
