We replaced our yucky old carpet with wood laminate floors a few years back and I’ve never regretted it. The only thing that I DIDN’T like about it was that every time someone sat on our couch it slid back and hit the wall. So I did a little research on how to keep furniture from sliding.

I started off using this tape that we already had on hand to keep our rugs from slipping. It would work for a week or two then the sticky would slowly wear off and the couch would be hitting the wall again.
How to Keep Furniture From Sliding
Then I found these anti-skid pads on Amazon:
I was a little skeptical when I found them. I didn’t see how they would be any different than the rug tape we had used before.
First of all, I had to trim them to fit the bottom of our couch legs. (They do come in different sizes, I just didn’t think ahead to get the right size.) I used an old pair of craft scissors with no problem.
One side has self adhesive on it and stuck right to the bottom of the couch leg. The black side you see above is what touches the floor. You don’t even notice them at all when they’re on. But I took a photo of the couch anyway. (Notice this is BEFORE I painted our side table.)
And, WOW, do these things work! Now we can plop down on the couch without it moving a bit!
