Getting Comfortable At The Sink {with a Giveaway!}

Besides receiving a thorough shining and losing it's dirty contents to this handy bin, my dishwashing nook experienced one other change this month.

I like to save the best for last.

If you stand over the sink for prolonged lengths of time, you probably experience tired feet or an achy back on occasion. I was routinely complaining about both to my husband last month. I had taken to wearing supportive shoes whenever I worked in the kitchen because my feet were KILLing me.

Then Sublime sent me an Imprint Comfort Mat.

You know that lovely memory foam that makes your bed delicious to sleep in? This mat is like memory foam for your feet.

Not my kitchen...but isn't it cute?
I love it! My Comfort Mat has found it's home right in front of my kitchen sink and it has made such a difference.

Pros: 
  • My feet (and back!) feel so much better. The mat is comfortable and supportive.
  • The mat doesn't slide around, unlike most rugs I have had in my kitchen before.
  • The Imprint Comfort Mats are so simple to clean. No shaking dirt out or washing it in your washing machine. Just wipe it off with some soap and water! To me, this is a huge perk. I love the feeling of having something clean under my feet.
  • The mats are waterproof, antimicrobial, and resistant to mold and mildew.
Cons: 
  • The regular sized mat costs $69.99. That's more than you would typically pay for a standard, run-of-the-mill kitchen rug at Target. But even I (cheap, coupon-crazy me) think this mat is worth every penny. And this would be such a wonderful gift for the loving women in your life who spend hours on their feet in the kitchen (or the laundry room...).
I'm excited to tell you that Sublime Co. is giving one of these awesome mats away to one of my readers!

How to enter:

Mandatory entry: Visit Imprint Comfort Mats and check out their mat selection! Leave a comment telling me which one is your favorite (please leave your email address!). 

For an additional entries (Leave a comment for each):
This giveaway is only open to US Residents and will run through November 17th.

What do you do to keep your feet/back from hurting when you work long hours in the kitchen?

  20. Having a good mat is wonderful - you reminded me of my own little trick...http://www.tangledzen.com/2010/11/at-my-feet.html.

    What a nice giveaway! The fact that the mat is washable is such a bonus. I personally wish it came in a few grey toned colors but think the Nantucket mocha is lovely.

  30. I wanted one of these when we were first in the student housing because I felt the same way--the tile was sooo hard on my feet and I had to start wearing shoes in there. I just couldn't bring myself to pay that much for one. I like the Nantucket cinnamon in cobblestone for my red kitchen :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My apartment has beautiful tile in the kitchen and bathroom, which I love, but I have to wear good shoes in my home all the time, or it kills my joints. I've wanted a nice mat like this for a while now. I have no idea which mat I would choose; anything in the standard size would be wonderful. I'm interested in seeing what their casual living series has to offer.
