I used to work at a Salon as a receptionist. After a long day at work, I’d arrive home, take off my shoes, rub my feet and thank God for the gel mat they provided us on the floor behind the desk. No. We did not have chairs to sit in. I, often, wondered where they get these mats, however, never thought I’d actually need or want one for my house. I mean, if I’m tired I’ll just sit down, right? It’s my house. I can do that.
That kind of thinking changed when I realized you can’t ACTUALLY sit down when you have three children 8 years and younger. While I’m washing dishes or doing the laundry I need comfort under my feet and GelPro is there to help with an array of mat choices ranging in patterns, colors, and sizes to fit any decor.
GelPro is the maker of the world’s original gel-filled anti-fatigue floor mat that reduces discomfort caused from standing on hard flooring. It might not sound glamorous, but this kitchen essential makes a world of difference for anyone that spends time on their feet. The mats are available in hundreds of different fabric, color and size combinations to match any décor, and make a great gift.
Thanks to GelPro, I was, recently, sent a gel floor mat of my own. They sent it right around the Holidays which is my “prime time” in the kitchen, so I was ever so thankful to have it.
What can you expect when ordering your Gel Pro Mat?
Well, you can, first and foremost, expect to be at your computer for awhile. No, there’s nothing wrong with their website or ordering process, but they provide such an extensive amount of choices, it’s hard to choose. I went back and forth, going to my kitchen, back to the computer, then back to the kitchen. If you need help, the GelPro Website has an interactive kitchen to help you pair the perfect color and texture for your mat to match your kitchen floor and cabinets.
In short. They make it easy. I make it hard by being so indecisive.
How will it be packaged?
I wondered this, thinking it would be in a flat box, however, I was surprised to see it nestled in a tube like package. You unroll onto your floor and there is no creases or corners that take weeks to uncurl. It was perfect.
Is it bulky?
The mat I received is thicker than your regular kitchen mat, however, it’s not that noticeably thicker. In fact, it gives you enough comfort, but doesn’t trip the dog when he walks passed it. Check it out:
What I also enjoyed about the mat is, the variety of “textures” you can choose from. I, obviously, went with Flora Mat, but you can also choose between Basketweave, Trellis, Wicker, Cordoba, Ostrich, Striated, Crocodile, and Rattlesnake. Those are just the STYLES, you then have an array of colors to pick from once you choose your style and don’t forget the size. They offer tons of sizes to fit any size room.
Is it slip resistant?
First off, these mats are pretty heavy. It’ll take quite a bit of weight to move this thing out of place. Each mat is made with a non-slip fabric on the bottom that is soft and supple offering a comforting element.The fabric, which was formulated specifically for use in GelPro Mats, is engineered to resist bacteria, mold, and algae that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration. So, you can wipe it down without fear of it causing damage to the mat or producing yucky bacteria.
All in all, I couldn’t find one thing I’d improve with GelPro Mats. Really. None.
In the end, my GelPro Mat has helped my tired feet and back after a long day. It’s added character to my kitchen and is really easy to clean. I definitely want to check out getting a few for our bathrooms!
GelPro specializes in comfortable floor mats. If you’ve walked onto a gel mat at a salon, chances are it was a GelPro mat. Tell me, do you think you could use one of these in your home?
Gel Pro floor mats can be purchased at stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, online at www.gelpro.com, or even on Amazon.com. Mats start at the suggested retail price of $69.95 and up, depending on size.
