After years of huffing and puffing while pushing my giant ugly sofas, various brightly colored dressers and who knows what else around my home, I finally broke down and bought some of those furniture sliders.
I’d seen them on TV for a while, and then the started popping up everywhere from Home Depot to my grocery store. They are packaged under various names, but they all basically do the same thing. I found a package of four for under $10 and figured they were worth a shot.
Y’all. I’m not exaggerating when I say that they have changed my DIY life.
Believe it or not, they work fantastically. All you have to do is lift each corner of the piece of furniture you want to move and place a slider underneath. There is foam on the top to protect your furniture and the bottom is slick plastic to help you glide the furniture across carpet. What used to be hard work now feels like pushing a baby stroller. Honestly!
My set even came with these little furry “slip cover” type things that you can put over the plastic portion so that you don’t scratch up hardwoods, laminate, concrete or tile. I haven’t had to use that part yet since the plastic part does just fine on my tile. I bet they would make the resistance a little bit less if I used them on the tile, though. I’m just to lazy to change them when I transition from carpet to tile.
Have you used furniture movers before? Love them or hate them?
