To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Its not waterproof. Its like a sponge, once it gets wet it just holds the water in. I sat it outside to dry for two days, stomped on it with a towel and it is STiLL wet. I would say it would be fine anywhere but next to a sink. It is comfortable for sure but also a gross sponge.
Over the years, I’ve bought many anti fatigue floor mats. I’ve been very disappointed by all of them until today. This mat arrived flat, there was no bad smell & it felt wonderful under my bare feet. Before today, the only anti fatigue floor I’ve bought from Amazon that was halfway good was the Amazon Basics mat. They are black & have a pattern that looks like it’s meant for a garage. This mat blows it out of the water. It feels wonderful on bare feet, it is easy to clean, it doesn’t smell bad, it arrived flat & it’s available in many different colors. I paid a little more money for it but it is well worth it. I put this one next to my bed & removed the Amazon Basics mat. I like getting up in the morning feeling a soft mat like this under my feet. I’m going to replace all of my mats with these.
My kitchen floor is hard tile over a concrete subfloor. Thanksgiving day cooking was the true test of this mat. I cooked for hours without a backache!
I also brought home the anti-fatigue mats from Costco. This one was much better, and I returned the others to Costco. On Thanksgiving, it felt so good, I would move it over by the mixer while baking and then move it in front of the sink to do dishes. I actually served the Thanksgiving meal almost completely caught up with washing dishes...the mat gave me more energy! I will be buying another one. The gray looks nice on my white floor.
I wanted a standing desk but our concrete floors made standing difficult and, often, painful. I originally purchased a smaller version of this mat for my office and my kitchen. In the office, the smaller mat works perfectly. In the kitchen, I found that the smaller mat caused me to catch my foot and trip while moving around the area. So I invested in two of the large mats and placed them in an L-shape configuration ... one going in front of the sink area and the other in front of the stove area. They have made such a difference. I no longer catch my foot on the mats and I am so comfortable. Standing for long periods is no longer a chore. They are easy to keep clean and look very nice in my home and office.
This is my 3rd purchase of this item. Loved it so much I bought one for my mother-in-law. Ended up getting her a second one for another part of her kitchen. Really sturdy and cleans up perfectly with just a wipe, which makes this much more sanitary than a regular kitchen rug. The colors have not faded at all and it doesn't have any flaws or holes anywhere. My (big butt) dog uses it for her cozy spot in front of the sink ( because dogs need to be right under your feet!) I have a ceramic tile floor and it did slip around a bit, so I used the multi-purpose tape that you would use to prevent rugs from slipping, it hasn't moved an inch.
While visiting the kids house my daughter-in-law has 4 of these mats in her kitchen. The moment I stepped on them I commented on how comfortable they are on the feet. I asked her to send me the Amazon link and ordered the large mat. It was at the house when we returned home and it is now in front of my sink. I love to wash dishes and now my feet will be on a cloud while washing them. I had a thin mat that just does not compare to the ComfiLife Anti Fatigue Floor Mat. They come in 5 different colors and I purchased the gray which goes well with our new gray LVT flooring. I definitely recommend this item.
Comfortable and wipes clean. Also seem to be at least somewhat resistant to cat claws! The cats really like sitting on these, but after a couple of weeks, they still look pristine. The only less-than-wonderful thing is they do slide around a lot. Not while you're standing on them, but the rest of the time. I'm constantly having to reposition them. I wish they had an underside designed to grip the floor.
Our rental kitchen floors are far from ideal and I was look for a solution to make washing the dishes/meal prep/cooking a bit less of a pain. This mat is perfect!
Pro: - great size and thickness, you can really feel the difference if you have any lower back problem like me! - easy to clean and waterproof. - stays in place, no need to worry about slips and/or falls
Cons: - not exactly a showstopper for design/aesthetic purposes. I wish there were some more neutral/lighter color options or some way to make this not look quite so industrial.
