I have new solid wood floors and I read the instructions on what NOT to do and it says don't use rubber backed floor mats , where do I find an approved vinyl rug underlayment and breathable rugs for my kitchen and in front of outside doors that won't move.
Also under large furniture, queen size sofa sleeper, lazy boy chairs what do I put under them?
My understanding is that special felt pads (some made with all natural rubber for non slip) are okay for finished wood floors? These can be used under furniture legs as well as under throw rugs. At least this is what my DD has had for the past 7 years, no damage.
I would probably check with a local flooring store for pads that are guaranteed safe, rather than taking a chance on a vinyl/sticking type of pad that would leave a pattern on your wood.
The felt pads for the furniture legs come in many sizes and are available at discount stores and the big box stores.
I found the smaller ones for table and chair legs but what about larger furniture,lazy boy chair things like that.
Go to this site and see what is available and where to find them. A multitude is available.

The felt pads can be purchased in larger sizes for under throw rugs.
So then you could just cut them to fit whatever the shape of the chair gliders or legs of the furniture. Might hot glue them the the overturned chair legs and sit it back up, if it is difficult to set in place on a pad?
Some years ago, it was a real mess in our home. The heavy furniture keeps damaged our wooden floor. Then we found a website which provided a permanent solution of this mess. The protection tape protects our wooden floors from scratches and stains. Here is the website: www.tuftape.co/products/surfac...ated_uncoated_metals
At our last place we had a large, heavy, and top-heavy cabinet that had to be moved occasionally. Went to Home Depot and got a four-pack of "sliders", about 5-6" diameter; they were not expensive. Looked like pieces of carpet. Tipped the cabinet enough to get the sliders under the four feet, and away we went! No harm to the solid wood flooring that had been refinished recently.
We later loaned the sliders to a neighbor who was moving and they had the same results. We still have these sliders and use them occasionally.
Bob, I have even left the "sliders" under the back of the couch, back of the heavy hutch, back of the upright freezer....you get the idea. Don't show, not uneven but sure makes it easier to move.
