Make Your Chairs Last Longer

As was discussed in Going Greenest, chairs and barstools need glides.  Don't settle for the default glides that come from the factory. The factory installed glides are typically small and don't do what they need to.  Go buy them at your local hardware store or furniture store.
  1. Hard floor: Felt Glides
  2. Carpet floor: Plastic Glides
  3. Bigger is better: Get the largest glide that will fit on the bottom of the leg.
The goal is to make your chairs or stools slide across the floor as little as possible so that the joints are not stressed.  It also makes it easier on you when moving a heavy chair or stool.
