Default Looking for ideas on protecting my carpet...

I am looking for an idea for the floor as I will be working in a carpeted room (half of my man cave) ideas anyone??? I want to protect it if possible, but want it to be stable enough for my Axis stand to sit on...

Plastic sheeting with a cheap area rug over the top of it.

I am also seeing a few people using plastic chair mats... Just wondering if the axis will slide all over it though...

Let me check that out... I am also looking at the Norsk foam tiles... I wondering if the 4x4 foot set will be big enough for the stand to be out with all four feet having clearance... Anyone know the footprint of the axis stand when it is all the way set up???
