Fabio Viviani Comfort Mats by Smart Step Home {Review & Giveaway}

Fabio Viviani logo
While I've never made any claims to be a star chef or A+ baker, I've always enjoyed spending time in the kitchen. Does every recipe turn out to be a winner? Nope, but it's usually fun (and tasty) trying.

However, the downside to spending an afternoon chopping vegetables or sifting flour is not only that I'm then tempted to eat the results, but that I nearly always end up exhausted and sore afterward. From the aches in my feet to the pains in my knees and back, it sometimes seems like every 10 minutes spent standing on the hardwood floor translates to my body feeling as though it aged 10 years.

But aside from wearing puffy slippers (which are too hot in the summer and just end up getting dirty anyway) or having plush carpet installed in my kitchen (ha!), what is the solution to making non-stop standing comfortable?

It's here and it is, in fact, extremely comfortable while also being quite stylish. It is the Fabio Viviani Anti-Fatigue Comfort Mat from Smart Step Home.

Having successfully addressed health and safety concerns in the workplace for over a decade with their superior anti-fatigue products, Smart Step Home is known for Comfort Mats that alleviate the aches and pains often associated with prolonged standing on hard surfaces.

As Fabio Viviani, a celebrated chef and culinary personality, is well-versed with standing for long periods of time, the combination of his knowledge and Smart Step Home's experience and design influence has resulted in fashionable products that provide comfort and support to consumers everywhere.

After looking over the various choices in styles and colors, I could barely wait for the Fabio Viviani's Toscana Mocha Comfort Mat to arrive.

Fabio Viviani Comfort Mat review

Although I had high hopes for the difference and improvements that the Toscana Mocha mat would make in my kitchen, I wasn't prepared for how much I would love it right out of the box.

The dark mocha coloring blended easily with our decor, the smooth finish felt nice on my feet, and the soft cushioning, oh the cushioning, of the ¾" polyurethane nearly wrapped my feet in squishy clouds. When Smart Step Home claimed that their proprietary SmartTech™ Polyurethane (STP) resulted in 'The Absolute Best,' they knew what they were talking about.

I could truly stand on this all day and it would never stop feeling like lavish luxury right under my tootsies!

Smart Step Home review

While I surely haven't stood in my kitchen nearly as long as Fabio Viviani stands in his, I can honestly vouch for how well his Comfort Mats perform.

Instead of finishing washing a load of dishes in the sink or prepping and cooking dinner and feeling the stress and strain in my back, legs and feet, I can walk right out of the room pain-free.

Smart Step Home mat

Available in two different pattern designs, both in a Caramel (lighter) and Mocha (darker) coloring, Fabio Viviani Comfort Mats are my new must-have for the kitchen... as well as any other location where you might spend an extended period of time standing.

Although the retail price of $99.95 might initially seem high, they do come with a 7-year Warranty that guarantees that you'll be as impressed with the quality and durability as I am. I have no doubt that the Toscana Mocha Comfort Mat will be in our kitchen for many, many more years to come!

Find out much more about Fabio Viviani's full line of Comfort Mats by visiting SmartStepHome.com and connecting with them on Facebook and Twitter.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon find out just why my feet have never been happier while standing on hardwood before, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of Fabio Viviani Comfort Mat from Smart Step Home!

i want to give this to my mom- shes a 64 year old janitor and she often talks about her sore/painful legs... i think she would like the cushion at her kitchen sink or her laundry table... but i bet she'd take it to work so she has a nice place to stand at night as she cleans her equipment- so thats my favorite thing
thank u

I like the fact that it works! I got to try one out at my friend's place and I could really stand for a long time (we were having a convo anyway so I figure I'd stand on the mat)

Unknown said...

Mosaic317 said...

The cushioning aspect is key for me. I frequently find myself pulling up a chair when chopping veggies because it is too much for me to stand longer than a few minutes.

I would love the cushion. I don't wear shoes in the house but need the support when standing for periods of time (cooking, washing dishes). I think this would be a great solution!

The cushioning.

/\Heather/\ said...

I do a lot of cooking, so I think the SmartTech™ Polyurethane (STP) will be wonderful for my poor feet. I think I bruise them daily, since I book in my bare feet on a tile floor!

Bo said...

I love how it has so much cushioning! The 3/4" of cushion sounds heavenly!

Bakersdozen said...

My favorite feature would be that they reduce fatigue.

lilyk said...

The feature I like best is the 7-year warranty.
