Chair mat on new carpet for office chair or not?

4 months ago

I am replacing my old carpet in the home office room. With the old builder carpet I used a chair mat. Mostly, to make rolling easier. Probably also thought to protect the carpet. However, the chair mat is visible after removing it. So, I wonder if this is kind of putting a plastic protector on a sofa situation.

I do have a Aeron chair with standard wheels (I believe). ~2 1/4" diameter wheels.

New carpet: Semi-soft, medium-pile (0.33") pattern - Lifeproof Nylon.

I am trying to get some input whether people use chair mats or not.
