Tip of the Week

Last week I talked about how to protect your hardwood floors from being scratched by your furniture by using felt pads under the legs of chairs and tables. As a follow up to that, do you have young kids in your home that like to use your couches as a trampoline?
Kids love to play and jump on furniture. The problem is that when they jump from couch to couch they tend to slide around on the slick surface of the wood floor. To prevent your furniture from sliding around after you place your felt pads under the feet, head out to your local hardware store.
There you will find rubber mesh material typically used to line cabinet drawers and shelves. Cut them to fit under the legs of your furniture with a pair of scissors and place them under the legs of your couches or any other piece of furniture that you don’t want to easily be moved. Now your kids can pretend to be the next Olympic champion or the next super avenger and furniture will stay in place.
