Tired in the kitchen? Try anti-fatigue mats!

Tired in the kitchen? Try anti-fatigue mats!
We recommend tiles when it comes to walls and floors, however, some people complain that they feel fatigue after standing up on a hard surface for a prolonged period of time, but, they would never give up their tiled flooring, so what is the solution for these people?

Anti-Fatigue mats were designed for just this

Anti-fatigue mats are used commercially, for workers who stand up in one position for prolonged periods of time. These help not only with comfort, but also decrease any foot and lower limb issues. So if you are one of these people who find it hard to stand for long periods on a hard surface then they will be valuable addition to your kitchen floor?

The anti-fatigue mats offer a cushioning effect and in terms of material options, usually they come in rubber, but carpeting and vinyl are also effective options.

When and why to buy an anti-fatigue mat?

-    If you are spending a lot of time in the kitchen, standing up.
-    If you have a pre-existing condition, causing you soreness.
-    They are also ideal for pregnant women.

How to choose your mat?

Yu might think that the thicker the mat, the more effective it is, but this is not the case, the elasticity of the mat is the most important factor.

Another aspect to keep in mind is the safety. Make sure the mat has sloped edges, to avoid tripping, and that the surface is not slippery.
