Why Your Kitchen Needs an Anti-Fatigue Mat
Your back and feet will thank you!
No matter what type of flooring you have in your kitchen, you’ve probably felt the effects of a long day in the kitchen. Tired feet, aching back — it’s enough to make anyone want to order take-out. Take a tip from the pros and consider getting some anti-fatigue mats for your kitchen. Restaurant chefs often stand at the same workstation for up to eight hours a day, and almost all restaurants have anti-fatigue mats of some kind to reduce slipping and promote wellness for the cooks. In America, more than 60% of adults report having some kind of back pain. If you count yourself among this group, it’s time to consider an anti-fatigue mat.
