Although I don't spend time in the kitchen cooking, I have been spending lots of time at the sink washing bottles and pump parts. It hurts when I stand in a stationary position for long periods of time so I was excited about my new kitchen mat from WellnessMat.
I chose the Original mat simply because it looked to be the easiest to clean and I was right! A quick swipe with a baby wipe (I use them for everything!) and it was free of any dust particles and random debris. The brown color blended perfectly with our tile and cabinets. When I first stepped onto the mat I could definitely tell the difference from our prior mats that MIL brought over.
The mat is definitely cushy due to it being 3/4 inches thick. It is made of an anti-microbial material which is perfect for the high traffic kitchen area. The 3/4 beveled edge allows me not to worry that Kenzie will accidently trip and fall onto the tile. She is so curious and always wants to "see" what we are doing in the kitchen and brings over her stool. The mat is also heat and puncture resistant which is great for people that wear shoes in their home as well as cook heavily (not me).
There are also health benefits to this mat:
“WellnessMats are uniquely designed to effectively suspend the body’s weight by reducing impact on the legs and back. In addition to improving circulation, reducing back stress, and decreasing fatigue, using the mat also improves balance. For anyone who has to stand for longer than 20 minutes, whether at home or in the office, WellnessMats are a must for better health,”
After washing a sink full of bottles and pump parts, I was pleasantly surprised that there was no back/leg pain. Some mats are a bit thin or the floor can be easily felt through the mat but the Wellness Mat has so much support it felt like I was floating on a cloud. I know I'm supposed to be resting and healing post-partum but who really can when there's work to be done? The WellnessMat definitely is the best anti-fatigue mat I have stepped on (even better than a well-known expensive brand I purchased for my MIL). So much so that I would like the entire house to be lined with this mat!
Buy It: You can purchase the Original Mat (2x3) for $119.95.
