Your kitchen is loaded with nonstick cookware, handy appliances and a razor-sharp knife set. Kudos to you, but odds are you’re missing the one accessory that you (and your feet) really need: a padded kitchen mat. They make cooking and cleaning a million times more comfortable and keep your feet from aching in the middle of a chore or project. (Think about it—there’s a reason bars and restaurants have these behind the counter for their employees to stand on.) Bonus? A bunch of them are on sale for Amazon Prime Day. Here are four picks we love.
The One Thing Missing from Your Kitchen (and It’s on Sale Right Now)
1. Asvin Premium Kitchen Mat Set
These anti-fatigue floor mats are waterproof and a breeze to clean, making them great to place in front of the kitchen sink. They’re also super cushy and supportive, which will help improve leg circulation while you work.
2. Luxstep Kitchen Mat Set
Don’t sweat accidentally tripping over these: The mats are designed to be non-slip and skid-resistant, so they stay in place over time. They’re also 20 percent thicker than some other PVC mats on the market.
3. Montvoo Kitchen Mats, 2-piece In Oats
If your kitchen’s décor lends itself better to a neutral, earth-toned mat, look no further than this two-piece set. They’re also just the right size for your laundry room or hallway.
4. Kitsure Kitchen Rug
The bold design will add a pop of excitement to an otherwise white, polished kitchen. The supportive material will keep your feet resilient after hours in the kitchen, but the mat can also prevent accidental breaks, since it could keep a stray plate or glass from shattering on the floor.
