Buy felt pads and fit them on your furniture. You can either choose tap-in pads or self-adhesive pads, as well as your perfect sizes and thicknesses. Felt pads for furniture are available in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses. If your furniture is heavier, choose a thicker felt pad and even huge uncut self-adhesive square felt pads so you can cut the best shape for customizing furniture bottoms with odd shapes. Lay the furniture piece on one side and clean up where you’ll be using the felt pad, like the bottom of a chair’s leg, using a dry rag. In case there’s a build up, use a little water and soap to clean up this area. This will make the surface clean and smooth so your felt pad can stick on. Remove the paper on the adhesive side of the felt pad and press it strongly onto the furniture piece’s bottom and hold for about ten seconds to achieve a tight seal. Alternatively, if you’re applying a tap-in furniture felt pad, lightly tap the felt pad onto the item’s leg using a hammer. Repeat this for each furniture piece. After every few months, have a look at the felt pads to ensure they’re still sticking tightly to the bottom of your furniture. Replace the pads once they are worn out or fall off. For long-term protection, select tap-in pads instead of adhesive versions as they tend to outlast adhesive varieties.
