While protecting our flooring surface may not something we initially consider when setting up a home office, it's a factor to not be forgotten. Not only will a chair mat protect your carpet from uneven wear and tread tracks from moving around in your home office chair but using a chair mat are actually better for you.
A chair mat used on a carpeted floor will move more smoothly and make you feel more comfortable. You won't feel that you are having to fight with your chair just to get in another area of your home office or even the other end of your desk.
