Why Use a Chair Mat?

Protect Your Carpet and Enjoy Super-Smooth Movement

Protect Your Carpet and Enjoy Super-Smooth Movement

The main benefit of using a chair mat is that it helps prevent damage to your carpet. When a chair's wheels constantly roll over the same patch of carpet, it can lead to lint formation, indentations, and general degradation. It also offers protection from spills or stains. If you're in a rental, a damaged carpet could end up being costly to repair or replace.


Additionally, with a chair mat, the wheels on your chair won't get caught up in the carpet fibers, so moving around or getting in and out will be much smoother.

Main Features of Chair Mats for Carpets

Studded Undersides Help the Mat Stay in Place

Studded Undersides Help the Mat Stay in Place

Many chair mats for carpets have studded or spiked undersides, which are designed to grip onto the carpet fibers and stop the mat from moving around as you roll on it. Mats without studs are much more prone to slipping, especially on carpets with shorter piles.

How to Choose Chair Mats for Carpet

Here are the points to keep in mind when choosing the best Chair Mats for Carpet.

1

Glass Mats Are Less Slip-Prone and Resist More Force

A Heavier Weight Anchors Down on Any Carpet Pile

A Heavier Weight Anchors Down on Any Carpet Pile

Glass mats, while they don't have spikes, offer a different advantage: their heavier weight makes them less prone to slipping, regardless of the length of the carpet pile. There are also hard plastic mats (usually PVC), which are lighter but have a smooth, solid surface that usually makes wheeling around on them easier.


Studded mats are great for short-pile carpets, providing high stability as they grip. However, they will not anchor down as well on thicker, long-pile carpets, so keep that in mind when choosing. It's also worth noting that mats without spikes weighing under 70 ounces are generally less effective at staying in place, no matter the thickness of the carpet.


Lightweight or non-studded mats can crease or cause your chair to drift, both of which will be annoying when you're trying to work or study. With glass mats, you won't have any of these issues.

2

Glass and Plastic Are Easy to Clean and Maintain

Drink Spills Can Be Quickly Wiped Away

Drink Spills Can Be Quickly Wiped Away

During our tests, glass and PVC mats came out on top for maintenance, as they can be quickly wiped clean if you spill your coffee or other drinks. On the other hand, fabric mats, such as those made from polyester, are prone to absorbing stains and require handwashing. For busy households especially, it's best to avoid polyester mats that involve more upkeep.

Lorell's Tempered Glass Chairmat placed first in our ranking and received an overall high rating for the best slip resistance. However, at 27.8 pounds, it may be too heavy if you plan to move it. If this weight is an issue, we recommend the MuArts Chair Mat, which placed second in our rankings.

3

Choose a T-Shaped Mat If You Have a Narrow Desk

Part of the Mat Fits Under Your Desk, Saving Space

Part of the Mat Fits Under Your Desk, Saving Space

The tip of a T-shaped mat tucks under your desk, making it a great choice for narrow spaces. They also protect the area beneath your feet when your chair is scooted in.


If you have a smaller workspace or want additional protection under your desk, consider going for a T-shaped mat.

mybest's Top Choice: Zero Slip and Smooth Glide on Any Carpet Type

What we loved

  • Top-notch slip resistance with a heavier weight
  • Super smooth wheel movement
  • Easy to keep clean

What we didn't love

  • Nothing in particular

Lorell's tempered glass chair mat promises a durable, scratch-proof design that can safely support up to 1000 pounds. Notably, it also comes with a 5-year warranty. This sturdy glass mat received high praise for its resistance to slipping, regardless of the length of the carpet pile. With a weight of 70.4 ounces, it provides top-notch stability, and even with frequent chair movement, it barely moves at all. There will be no need to readjust the mat throughout your working day, keeping your space stress-free.


This mat also enables super smooth wheel movement, requiring little force to adjust your position or get in and out of your chair. Since there are no fibers on the mat's surface, there's no worry about snagging either. Additionally, it's about as easy to clean and maintain as you can get, needing only a quick wipe in the event of any splashes or spills. Combining its zero-slip grip, super smooth wheel movement, easy upkeep, and long-lasting glass construction, this mat is our top-rated product for any home or office.

Ticks All the Boxes for Slip-Resistance, Grip, and More

What we loved

  • Stable and slip-free
  • Feels just like a hardwood floor
  • Very easy to keep clean

What we didn't love

  • Nothing in particular

MuArts' rectangular mat is suitable for both carpets and hard floors and is made of crystal-clear hard plastic. It's packaged unfolded, so it doesn't bend or develop and creases when shipped. Scoring highly in slip resistance, this mat's weight helped it to be very stable, preventing any sliding even with frequent wheel movement. It stayed firmly in place regardless of the length of the carpet pile. Moreover, the smooth surface made it less likely for the chair's wheels to snag, allowing you to stay focused on your work.


Thanks to its hard plastic material, this mat can be quickly brushed or wiped clean and offers great durability. We highly recommend this chair mat for any type of desk work, as it replicates the feeling of a hardwood floor and is very easy to maintain.

A Sleek Glass Option That's Stable and Durable

What we loved

  • Crystal-clear design blends into carpet easily
  • Almost zero slipping on all flooring
  • Resistant to stains and scratches

What we didn't love

  • Nothing in particular

This sleek tempered glass mat from BEAUTYPEAK features rounded corners for safety and a crystal-clear design that will blend in with any carpet colorThis glass mat's more substantial weight kept it in place with almost zero slipping, even on long-pile carpets. This earned it one of the highest scores for slip resistance. The glass material stands up to stains and is scratch-resistant too, so it should look as good as new for longer.


This mat also received high marks for wheel mobility and smoothness thanks to its polished glass surface. Whatever type of carpet you have, this mat will make working at your desk more comfortable while protecting your floor from damage.

A Compact Option With Easy Chair Movement

What we loved

  • Excellent grip to avoid shifting
  • Great glide without snagging your char's wheels
  • Easy-care material for daily use

What we didn't love

  • Only performs on specific carpets

This T-shaped option from Dimex is ideal for smaller workspaces. Designed for low-pile carpets, it's made from PVC with studs on the underside to help it grip onto the fibers. While testing its slip resistance, we found that the results varied depending on carpet thickness. On short-pile carpets, the spikes gripped down securely, providing good stability. However, on longer piles, the length of the spikes was insufficient, causing the mat to shift easily. So, you should only go for this mat if you have a low-pile carpet up to a 1/4-inch thick. If not, the brand offers several options for other carpet and flooring types. 


Since the mat is PVC, there's no wheel snagging, allowing you to glide in your chair without applying any force. It's highly resistant to stains, a notable advantage when used for daily desk work or study.

Best for Thin, Short-Pile Carpets

What we loved

  • Performs well on low-pile carpets
  • Easy to keep clean

What we didn't love

  • Doesn't arrive flat when shipped
  • Some force required to move over it

Kuyal's chair mat is another studded PVC option that is rectangular-shaped. Note that it arrives rolled, so you'll need to lay it out, weigh it down, and wait a couple of days before it flattens out completely. Like other spiked plastic options, this mat's stability depends on the length of the carpet pile. It performed very well in our tests on low-pile carpets, but the spikes hardly functioned on longer piles. It will likely require more force to get in and out of your chair or adjust your position, which could become frustrating. Overall, this is a basic, easy-to-maintain option to consider if you have a very thin or low-pile carpet.

What we loved

  • Durable and easy to maintain

What we didn't love

  • Wheel mobility isn't the best

IOCOCEE's T-shaped mat tucks under your desk to save space, with studded grips to secure it on low-pile carpetsThis is another mat that performed well on the right carpet type (low or no pile) but not on longer piles, earning it only an average overall score for slip resistance. So, make sure to bear that in mind when considering this option. Unfortunately, it also did not score so well for wheel mobility and will need to be heated and weighed down before use to ensure it is completely flat. On the other hand, it will be a cinch to keep this mat clean, and its thick PVC construction is designed to last.

A Thin Mat Prone to Wheel Snagging

What we loved

  • Good grip and wheel mobility on the right carpet type
  • Durable and stain resistant

What we didn't love

  • Only suitable for maximum 1/4-inch carpet piles

AM The America Store's lipped chair mat offers under-desk coverage, spiked grips, and ramped edges to roll your chair on and off easilyThis mat received low ratings for wheel mobility from our testers. Due to how thin it is, and with one of the lowest weights at just 64 ounces, it tended to sink too far into longer-pile carpets, causing the wheels to snag. However, it was fine on shorter piles, so only purchase this mat for carpets up to a 1/4-inch thick. This textured, wear-resistant, and stain-resistant PVC mat is worth considering for the right carpet type.

Under-Desk Protection for Low-Pile Carpet

What we loved

  • Works well on short-pile carpet
  • Suitable for smaller workspaces

What we didn't love

  • Uneven surface led to wheel snagging
  • Must be used on the right carpet type

This T-shaped mat by OFM promises that its molded cleats will firmly secure it to low-pile carpets up to a 1/4-inch thickWhile this mat did perform well on thinner carpets during our tests, it shifted by up to 1.2 inches on longer piles. So if you use it on a thicker carpet, you will have to adjust it back to its original position frequently. Not ideal when trying to focus at work. On top of this, we found that its surface was uneven, making wheeling over it difficult. This mat scored well for cleaning and maintenance, so it's a viable option if you have short-pile carpeting and a smaller office or work area.

Low Performance but Thick and Durable

What we loved

  • Wear-resistant and easy to maintain

What we didn't love

  • Studs failed to grip well on any carpet pile
  • Not easy to roll over with an office chair

Made from thick, clear polycarbonate, GPED's studded mat is designed for long-lasting durabilityIn our tests, there was noticeable slipping regardless of the length of the carpet pile, leading it to receive a low score. The spikes did not anchor it well, so when moving the chair's wheels, the mat tended to shift along with them. Additionally, its uneven surface made rolling the casters awkward, and more force was required to move the chair. While keeping this PVC mat clean will be easy, it will need warming up and flattening before use as well as potentially during the colder months when it may stiffen and curl.

A Studless Mat That Often Slips and Snags

What we loved

  • Scored well for ease of cleaning

What we didn't love

  • Significant shifting on all carpet types
  • Frequent wheel snagging
  • Too thin and lightweight to use comfortably

HappyTrends' rectangular mat claims to be suitable for not only carpet but hard and tiled flooring too. Without spikes, it's completely transparent, meaning it should blend into carpets more subtly. Since it lacks any studs or backing grip and is very lightweight, this mat showed low stability on carpets and significant slipping. Even a slight movement of the chair caused it to shift diagonally. The thinness also caused the chair's wheels to sink in, preventing smooth rolling on the mat. While this mat is easy to keep clean, we don't think it's best used on carpet.

Creases Easily and Susceptible to Stains

What we loved

  • Nothing in particular

What we didn't love

  • Showed slipping on all carpet types
  • Fibers from the material caused wheels to snag
  • Stains easily since it is made from polyester

ANMINY's Office Chair Mat is the only fabric product we tested. This polyester mat comes in six colors, offering options to accent your room instead of just blending in. Receiving the lowest scores of all the products we tested, this mat slipped easily on both carpet thicknesses despite having a self-adhesive backing. The fibers from its surface material also caused the chair's wheels to catch, making it inconvenient to use. When it comes to maintenance, this mat's polyester material is susceptible to staining, though it can be vacuumed and even machine-washed on a gentle cycle. On the whole, however, we suggest other chair mats for your carpet.

How We Tested the Chair Mats

Chair Mats for Carpet Evaluation

At mybest, we define the best chair mat as one that allows smooth, easy wheel movement, is resistant to slipping, and is easy to maintain.


To find the best product, we gathered the top 11 best-selling chair mats from Amazon, Staples, Walmart, and other stores and thoroughly tested them on the following 4 criteria.

  • Slip Resistance (Short-pile & Long-pile Carpet)
  • Slip Resistance (long-pile carpet)
  • Wheel Mobility
  • Ease of Maintenance

Slip Resistance (Short-pile & Long-pile Carpet)

Slip Resistance (Short-pile & Long-pile Carpet)

To rank the mats for slip resistance, we looked for models that do not shift at all, even when repeatedly rolling backward and forward while sitting in the chair.

Scoring Method

Two types of carpets were prepared (short-pile and long-pile), and each mat was rated for both styles. Testers meeting the conditions below sat in an office chair and moved back and forth 10 times on the chair mat, measuring the resistance to slipping. The final score was based on their evaluation, with a perfect score given to products with zero slippage.

Test Conditions

  • Testers: 5 individuals weighing between 165 to 185 lbs.
  • Chair used: Office chair (Okamura "Sylphy")
  • Carpets used: Short-pile carpet (thickness: 0.12 inches) / Long-pile carpet (thickness: 1.77 inches)
2

Wheel Mobility

Wheel Mobility

We defined excellent mobility as products that allow smooth wheel movement without feeling any snagging or requiring excessive force.

Scoring Method

Two types of carpets were prepared (short-pile and long-pile), and testers sat in the chairs and moved on each type of floor. They evaluated the ease of wheel mobility and scored each chair mat accordingly.

Test Conditions

  • Testers: 5 individuals weighing between 165 to 185 lbs.
  • Chair used: Office chair (Okamura "Sylphy")
  • Carpets used: Short-pile carpet (thickness: 0.12 inches) / Long-pile carpet (thickness: 1.77 inches)

What We Checked

  • Ability to glide smoothly without feeling any snagging
  • Whether it felt the same as on a regular floor
3

Ease of Maintenance

Ease of Maintenance

We tested for chair mats that are not susceptible to staining and can be wiped clean for easy maintenance.

Scoring Method
