Cushioned Kitchen Floor Mats

When working for long periods on your feet preparing food or washing dishes, using high-quality anti-fatigue kitchen mats from Greatmats is a smart idea.

These are the best floor mats to use when you want to provide a bit of support and cushion for anyone working in the kitchen. The right mats will help you avoid having pain in the back, hips, knees, and ankles after a long working session at home.

Size and Shape Options

Nearly all anti fatigue kitchen mats will have a pre-cut design, meaning they ship at a certain size and shape. A few models will offer a custom-cut size option, so you can order the exact amount of coverage you need.

Most of these mats will have a rectangular shape. This is a convenient design, as it gives you the ability to move side to side on the mat to reach ingredients without having to leave the cushioned surface.

A typical size for these mats will be 3x5 feet, although 2x3 feet is a common size option too. You may find some larger or smaller mats available for sale as well.

Material Options

Because the best anti fatigue kitchen mats need to provide both cushioning and support, they frequently consist of a firmer material than you may expect. You don’t want a mat consisting of extremely soft foam, or you’ll sink too far into the mat, losing the support your body needs.

On the other hand, if the material is too firm, you won’t receive the cushioning benefits that are so important to anti fatigue matting.

Many mats will consist of a mixture of PVC plastic and foam or PVC plastic and vinyl. Rubber and foam mixtures or rubber compounds are potential options as well.

These materials are durable and easy to clean, making them a great choice for use in the kitchen.

Pattern and Texture Options

Depending on the anti fatigue kitchen mats in use, you may have multiple color options from which to select. You can also have some different design patterns on the surface of the mat, making these mats pleasing to look at while matching the kitchen decor.

Options for the base color of the mats can include bluish-gray, gray, brown, black, green, and red. Some models will have subtle color patterns contrasting the base color that make the mat resemble vinyl flooring. Some of the black mats will have a yellow border available that can make the edge of the mat easy to see.

A few different textures are available on these mats. The majority of kitchen mats will have a smooth surface. However, some mats have grooves in the surface of the mat to provide traction.

A few models have a bubble top design or a diamond pattern design that should enhance the comfort of standing on the mat for long periods of time while yielding traction against the possibility of slipping on liquids spilled across the surface of the mat.

Some mats offer perforations where liquids can drain through the mat to reach a floor drain underneath.

Common Use Options

These mats primarily work in a kitchen setting at home, allowing people who are preparing food or who are washing dishes to stand comfortably. These mats will maintain their shape without showing indentations from footprints, even when they are supporting the weight of someone for a long time.

Because these anti fatigue kitchen mats are lightweight and easy to move, some people will choose to deploy them in other areas of the home. You might move the mat into a laundry room so you can stand and fold laundry. Others deploy this mat in front of a standing workbench or workstation as well.

These mats can withstand spills of liquids or powders without showing damage. They will stand up to tough conditions.

Installation Options

Our anti fatigue kitchen mats have a portable design that’s perfect for moving them from place to place. You should not use adhesive or glue to put these mats down permanently. They should grip the subfloor slightly, keeping them in place without the need for tape or glue.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

Because our mats work in a kitchen environment where spills can occur frequently, they need to be easy to clean and maintain. To that end, the materials in this matting will not absorb liquids or odors.

When it’s time to clean the mat, use a dry microfiber mop, a broom, or a vacuum cleaner over the top to remove dry debris.

To clean stubborn soils, you can use a mop with a neutral-pH cleaning solution. A mild soap or detergent will also work. Allow the surface to naturally dry in the air after mopping it.

If you choose a mat with a textured surface, it can be a little more difficult to clean up powders versus a mat with a smooth surface, as you have to work around the raised pattern or the grooves in the surface of the mat.
