When we visited our daughter a few weeks ago, she had several anti-fatigue floor mats in her kitchen. One in front of her sink and one in front of the counter they use when preparing food. Honestly, I thought they were the latest gimmick to separate us from our money. I stood on one of her mats and thought, "wow, this really is comfortable".
Back home, I promptly ordered two anti-fatigue mats for my own kitchen. As soon as they arrived, they were immediately placed on the hardwood floor. Since then, I have prepared two recipes that require a lot of standing time. Shockingly, I did not hurt after standing for over an hour either time.
Anti-Fatigue Floor Mats By Sky Mats
Make sure you buy the right brand! I tried several in the local store and most of them slid to easily. The Sky mats have a backing that holds them in place. Plus, they have sloped edges. Therefore, I won't slip and fall. That non-slip backing is a huge difference when comparing anti-fatigue floor mats.
The Sky Mats are not available in a lot of different colors or patterns. Getting hung up on "looks" is what caused me to consider a different brand. I am so glad I tried them in the store first! I knew I would prefer comfort over appearance. After all, the reason I need the mats is because of the extreme back pain I experience after standing on my hardwood floors for long periods of time.
I purchased two different Sky Mats. They are the same matching color, but they are different lengths. As you can see in the photos, I have the standard size (20x32x3/4-inch) in front of my kitchen sink. However, I opted for a longer (24x70x3/4-inch) that covers the area in front of my counter and stove top. This is totally awesome! I never have to leave my "cloud of comfort" when preparing, cooking, or cleaning. Plus, the smaller mat is easy to lift and move if needed.
I enjoy cooking and always hated the subsequent aches and pains. I no longer have to worry about hurting simply because I need to stand at the counter or stove-top for several hours. That makes the meal so much more enjoyable for me!
