Wood you believe it !

Study.

Office Chair.

Leaves circular depression in carpet over time.

 

Solution:

A large sheet of Hardboard, (≈ 4ft x 4ft) for chair casters to run on.....

Very smooth movement now...

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Re: Wood you believe it !

Gave up on our office chair (which we thought was a good idea at the time) and went back to using a bentwood chair, one of several we rescued from a library reading room when it was being 'modernised'. Perfectly comfortable for the job, and if they were good enough for readers a hundred years ago and yes they are that old, then they are more than good enough now - we even have the enamel "reading room" sign that like those chairs was destined for the skip!

Perfect for the bathroom door.

Only paid something like £25 second hand for that office chair, so nothing lost... and a builders skip gain.

As for putting down a large sheet of hardboard, nah, I don't think so even if you can go weeeeeee. 😂

Bathroom, toilet, call it what you like. 

We call ours the 'salle de bain', we're posh like that. 😉

Re: Wood you believe it !

I made a custom chair using a seat from a Honda Accord and the base from my Ikea Vilgot office chair (was an okay chair, but not good for my back after a while), sure it leaves dents in the carpet, but comfort always comes at a cost one way or another... 😂

A Rolls Royce seat would have been much better and yeah I know, just got to find and old Rolls Royce.... or a Bentley at a push.

Re: Wood you believe it !

Given RR & Bentley stuff seem to be made of dark matter, I think the floor would have given way under the weight of such a thing... 🤣

@Lægen 

Ah well, in that case a piece of board is a must. 😉

or sell the house and buy a house with bigger rooms, so you can have two computers in the same room !  Cheesy
