The Best In Designer Mats :: GelPro

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and of course, that means spending a large portion of my time in the kitchen. Several years ago the “Thanksgiving Torch” was passed on to me, which means long hours recreating traditional family recipes. While I’m honored to be entrusted with cooking the holiday meal, it also means spending several days on my feet prepping, cooking & cleaning. Enter GelPro®, the world’s leader in comfort flooring mats. Several months ago they contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying a mat in our home, and now they can include me in their legion of loyal customers. As a designer, my first thoughts were about the colors and patterns choices. I was thrilled to find out that GelPro has hundreds of designer-inspired patterns to choose from including options that can be monogrammed. With the current trend toward personalization, GelPro has created the perfect solution allowing customers to customize mats for personal use or as gifts. I chose GelPro Elite in Shagreen, a very stylish addition to my kitchen, and music to my feet (and back). The pattern choices are truly impressive ensuring the mats can be incorporated into a variety of interior styles from sophisticated to casual.

GelPro comfort mats are the only gel-filled, anti-fatigue, ergonomic floor mats for the home and office that absorb shock reducing pressure that tires people’s feet, legs and backs. In my opinion, the mats are the ultimate accessory for the kitchen, bath, laundry room, mud room & office. The uses are endless. GelPro Elite® mats are now available in a new, longer 20-inch by 72-inch length for today’s modern kitchens (and the perfect size for ours).

Robb McMahan, GelPro’s founder, and CEO feels that “With today’s larger kitchens serving as cooking, entertaining and family centers, we expect a lot of interest in the 20-inch by 72-inch GelPro Elite mats that run the full length of counters and islands. There are so many great colors and designs, and custom patterns, to fit any kitchen décor.”

Frankly, I couldn’t agree more.

I love the patterns and color choices offered by GelPro, but with our open floor plan I chose Shagreen in Toffee to blend with other floor coverings & rugs in our home.

The perfect compliment to the tone of our wood floors…and our dark haired pets.

We chose the 72″ length which is perfect for our longer island.
