There is so much more to consider when choosing a door mat than just colour and pattern. Consideration need to be given as to what type of floor surface the door mat is going to be placed on and also the amount of foot traffic that the door mat will experience.
For a door mat to be placed on a hard floor a rubber backing is recommended. Rubber provides more traction thyan vinyl and therefore is less likely to move around and slip out of place.
A door mat that is going to be placed on a carpeted surface should ideally have a ‘cleated’ gripper back. This type of backing has hundreds of raised rubber nodules which help the door mat to grip the carpet pile and prevent door mat movement.
If you are looking for an outdoor doormat then you must ensure it is weather proof. Most door mats designed for outdoor use are made from rubber which is both weather resistant and easily cleaned. An alternative to rubber is a door mat with a ‘pile’ made from vinyl loops. The advantage of this type of door mat is that they are available in various colours and look more like a traditional carpet door mat.
