Gaming chair floor mats are a luxury, not a necessity. But having one to your workstation adds a lot. They have floor-gripping rubber undersides on the bottom. Up top are a range of water-resistant styles. Some designs are plain. Others are vibrant. They look good, protect hard floors, and keep your feet warm. Check out some of the most attractive gaming chair floor mats now available.
Here at ChairsFX HQ, I use a (not available) Captain America floor mat over ceramic floors. This mat protects my nervous landlord’s floors. It also lets me work with bare feet.
Aesthetically, it adds a nice visual boundary around my ‘productivity zone’. Having a soft circle of fabric around my chair gives visual and tactile sensations that better help me to ‘switch on’. After a 20 or 25-minute blast of work, I stand up and step away from the mat perimeter. That snaps me out of the ‘zone’ to stretch, relax, or walk around before another go.
Science backs the idea of working in 25-minute bursts. It helps to make people sharper and more productive. In my experience, a mat marking boundaries helps to better switch on, or off when needing a break.
Best gaming chair floor mats
The best place to buy gaming chair floor mats is on Amazon. These days, there are only a handful of brands selling good-quality floor mats. Most are for hard floors only, although some work on carpeted floors as well.
Cleaning is easy. Swab down with a damp mop every so often. SOme models are also machine-washable (in cold water).
GTRacing floor mats
GTRacing makes some of the best cheap gaming chairs on the market. Recently, the company added a pair of rectangular floor mats. There’s a blue color-accent version, and a red one. Each has a rectangular shape sized 43″ (W) x 35″ (D) (110 cm x 90 cm).
These mats are only for hard, non-carpeted floors. They work well on vinyl, concrete, laminate, and hardwood. The undersides have an anti-slip coating, while the surface is easy to clean with a damp cloth or mop.
Arozzi Floor Mats
Price: Price not available
Popular chair maker Arozzi makes floor mats in three color variants. The red, green, and blue variants all measure 45.7″ x 45.7″.
All variants come with a velvet-like polyester surface. That protects floors and dampens the noise of rolling chair wheels.
Floortex Floor Mats
Floortex Floor Mats come in a choice of neon pink or deep blue. Both measure 38″ x 39″ and work on both hard floors and carpets.
These models are water-resistant and machine washable. Made out of polycarbonate, they are also very tough and durable.
Areia floor mat
The Areia floor mat is pricier than competing models, but has some nice qualities. It’s a 120×120 cm octagon (47×47 inches) designed for hardwood floors only.
The mat is 4mm thick with an anti-slip rubber bottom and a microfiber purple galaxy design. Clean with a damp cloth or mop. You can also machine-wash this mat in cold water.
Nautus Vincere Floor Mat (NaVi)
Based out of Ukraine, Natus Vincere is the 10th most successful esports team of all time. The Natus Vincere floor mat comes with the team’s iconic logo on the front in vivid yellow.
It has a rubber-grip underside like the other mats. On the top is an Advanced Matrix Cloth Weaving Surface. That is the same material used to make combat diving suits.
