3 Benefits of Adding Casters to Furniture, Manhattan, New York

Many pieces of furniture, such as bookshelves and home entertainment centers, are typically stationary. But couches, tables, chairs, desks, and many other objects are enhanced by additional movement. Many people place casters, a small assembly with a wheel, at the bottom of furniture to make it mobile. Here are some advantages of adding these devices to your furniture.

3 Reasons to Add Casters to Furniture

1. To Easily Move Furniture 

Adding these mobility enhancers to heavy furniture makes rearranging and moving much easier. Elderly and children can help with some of the chores by having the ability to move tables or other objects with ease to sweep, vacuum, and mop underneath. This can be beneficial during family gatherings, team meetings, or even poker night. Most have locking mechanisms to limit unwanted movement, and can switch to the unlocked position with a press of the foot.

2. To Prevent Scratches

CastersTrying to move objects on linoleum or hardwood floors and not leave a mark is not an easy task. There are a wide variety of casters with different wheel types to provide protection to whatever surface you’re moving across. Tile and hardwood floors require softer treads. Hard treads will grind the tile to a white powder, and hardwood floors will damage nylon wheels, so it’s important to purchase high-quality casters. 

3. To Add a Modern Touch

The assemblies come in a variety of shapes, colors, and designs to enhance the look of any piece of furniture. With little effort, you can take plain furniture and add an industrial or postmodern motif. Adding them to dining room chairs allow them to roll back and forth easily across the floor, which places less weight against the infrastructure of the chair, and increases their longevity.
