15 Best Kitchen Mats for Home Cooks [Updated] | Taste of Home

Never worry about slipping or sliding on this anti-slip kitchen mat. Its rubber backing won’t budge for anything—yes, even kids running through the kitchen! The beautiful tile-like design is guaranteed to brighten any space. By the way, do you know how to clean kitchen mats?

Slip-resistant, anti-trip, durable and easy to clean = the perfect pet-friendly kitchen mat. As House of Noa puts it, this mat is like “standing on a zillion gummy bears.” Don’t be surprised if your pup or kitten curls up next to you while you’re doing the dishes. Make sure you’re equipped with these essential dishwashing products, too.

We can’t think of a better mat to brighten up the kitchen than this floral mat. It’s anti-fatigue and includes a non-slip backing for extra support while washing dishes or meal prepping. Bonus: Buy two and add a pop of color to your laundry room decor.

Make a subtle style statement without overpowering your kitchen decor with this neutral kitchen mat. The anti-slip backing keeps it in place whether in the kitchen, laundry room or entryway. It features the support and comfort of anti-fatigue mats, so feet and knees are at ease while preparing meals.

On the hunt for neutral and practical? Pick up an anti-fatigue mat. The extra-thick cushion earns top reviews online, plus the edges are curl-proof. It comes in brown and black with a subtle checkered design for added visual interest.

Love the floral medallion design of classic area rugs? It’s available as a comfortable kitchen mat! This Persian kitchen mat is anti-fatigue, meaning it offers the right balance of softness and support. The waterproof and stain-resistant material is a breeze to clean and vacuum, while the anti-slip backing keeps it in place (read: it’s pet- and kid-proof).

We can’t say enough good things about Ruggable rugs. Machine washable and extremely durable, this runner is ideal for anyone who has considerable kitchen floor area to cover. We love this bestselling Ruggable runner because it comes with a detachable rug pad. Just throw it in the washing machine and it’ll come out looking good as new. And if black and white isn’t your thing, it also comes in multiple fun colors. Ruggable makes easy-to-wash bath mats, too.

Kitchen mats take a beating: trampled, splashed with messy food and snoozed upon by pets. Opt for one that’s durable and easy to clean, like this indoor/outdoor rug. Tough enough to live outside, this lightweight rug can literally be hosed off and scrubbed until it’s good as new. It pairs well with these patio furniture ideas.

Most kitchen mats are spot clean only. This easy-to-clean kitchen mat, however, can be tossed directly into the washing machine for an extra deep clean. It’s also anti-allergic, so there’s no need to worry about any hair or lint getting stuck to your mat.

Say hello to your new favorite Pioneer Woman kitchen product. The oval design of this rustic vintage floral kitchen rug is perfect for displaying under the sink. The braided patterns and hues add farmhouse flair while the lightweight cushion adds comfort. Simply spot treat to clean.

Anti-fatigue mats aren’t the only choice for a kitchen. Woven rugs are available in more styles and colors, and can be padded (and made anti-skid) with a rug mat. A bold colorful rug instantly makes your kitchen more colorful. We like this bright stripe indoor/outdoor rug because it’s water-resistant and scrubbable, so the bright design won’t bleed or fade.

Available in three sizes, this jute-like natural kitchen mat perfectly covers any splash zones or resting spots for pups. The non-skid rubber backing and washable material earns high marks from Amazon shoppers. Plus, the 100% polypropylene material won’t snag or fray. It’s also highly absorbent.

Featuring the perfect dose of pink, you won’t get tired of looking at this wavy kitchen mat. We love the flatweave—it’s easy to clean and ideal for highly trafficked rooms such as the kitchen. All it takes is a vacuum cleaner to regularly upkeep this kitchen rug. It adds a pop of color to any kitchen aesthetic.

What’s better than a kitchen mat with just the right dose of colorful accents? A customizable kitchen mat. This pick features a beautiful burgundy flower design and the name of your choice in the center. Choose the font style and color. There’s even a monogram style to choose from. This mat makes for a great personalized wedding gift, too.

Not only is this patterned kitchen mat available in three sizes, the memory foam cushion is nice on the feet. Waterproof and oil-resistant, this is one of the easiest to clean kitchen mats that will last for multiple years. Choose the palette that fits your kitchen aesthetic and enjoy walking on a cushioned surface from here on out.
