  • Getting Ready for Winter – Protecting your floors

     

    The nights are drawing in which is a sure sign winter is fast approaching. Flip-flops by the door will be replaced by the fluffy winter boot and with them the inevitable muddy footprints!

    Getting Ready for Winter

     

    Here at Make An Entrance we love the great outdoors whatever the season! However we also know that you don’t necessarily want it being brought back into your home in the form of muddy wet marks on your floors!

    So far we have been blessed with some great Autumn Sunshine and mild temperatures. Now is a great time to start thinking about getting the much needed protection in place for your floors before the weather really starts to turn!

    So what is our winter protection advice as your local doormat experts? - A Duo Doormat Set!

     

    We believe you can’t beat a duo doormat set to provide the best protection for your floors. Firstly a hardwearing outdoor mat for scraping away debris such as a synthetic scaper mat or woven backed coir mat. This will get the worse of the dirt off of those wet muddy boots.

     

    Follow this up with an absorbent mat indoors to soak up any remaining dirt and moisture and you have the best possible combination of mats to protect those floors. If you want an indoor mat that can be kept looking fresh all winter our machine washable door mats are a great choice.

     

    Doormat Sets - Functional Outdoor Scraper Mat paired with Indoor Washable Cotton Mat

     

    We have put together a range of doormat sets that follow this advice and may save you time having to search for your own combination!

    So now you can go outside and have as much fun in the wintertime as we do without worrying about those muddy footprints!

  • Our Doormat Size Guide!

    This doormat size guide blog article is designed to help answer our customer's questions about our standard doormats.

     

    Doormat Size Guide

    Customer's often ask for a ‘standard sized doormat’.  This can be tricky one to respond to as people’s perspectives of a standard size can vary somewhat!

    However did you know that the official ‘Standard’ UK size mat is approximately 75cm x 45cm? This is why nearly all of our standard plain or personalised door mats are available in these dimensions!

    In fact our Standard Doormat Sizes are made up of around 9 different sized mats and almost as many thicknesses! From Extra Small when space is an issue  to XXXX Large which are perfect for Double Doors.

    Doormat Size Guide

    Our expert advice on choosing which standard size doormat to go for is always to get the largest mat that will fit comfortably in the space. This is because the more steps people take on your doormat the more dirt is captured. A large mat has the added benefit of being an area where visitors can stand to their remove shoes.

    However one thing to be considered when purchasing ‘off the shelf’ standard sized doormats is that they can actually vary by a couple of centimetres either way. If exact dimensions are required it may be better to go for a made to measure product

    Doormat Size Guide - Thickness

     

    The other important thing to consider in choosing the correct size doormat is the thickness required.

    Doormat Size Guide

     

    Clearance is the key on this one! You would be surprised at how many customers order a luxuriously thick doormat only to find the front door won’t open over it! Our customer service staff will all tell you please don’t forget to measure clearance if a door opens over your mat!

    People also often mistakenly think that with a natural coir mat the thicker the mat the better the quality. This simply isn’t true! The quality of a coir mat depends on the density of the weave not the thickness. A thinner more densely woven mat can often be more hardwearing and have a more effective scraper action than a thick mat.

  • Doormat with house number or name

    Are you looking to give your entrance a more personal feel? How about a doormat with house number or name on it! We have a number of options for inside or outside use!

     

    Doormat with house number

    Outdoor doormat with house number or address

     

    Our address personalized outdoor/indoor doormat is customised with your house number and street name on our hard wearing synthetic coir scraper mat. As it is made from a durable nylon blend fibre that will not rot and is UV resistant this mat is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. It is fully washable so it will keep its good looks for a long time and is only 8-10mm thick so ideal if you don’t have much clearance under your door.

    Not only will this encourage people to wipe their feet before they come in, an outdoor doormat with house number or address can help your visitor’s know they are at the right door – not to mention those poor delivery drivers!!

     

    Indoor doormat with house number or address

     

    If you are looking for a more traditional or natural doormat with house number and street name for use indoors then why not take a look at our coir Personalised Address Door Mat. These are produced with our laser engraving technique, which gives a more subtle contrast than some of our printed mats. The laser uses heat to change the colour of the fibres to a darker brown, they are not printed with ink, or sprayed with paint so the design will last.

    Doormat with house numberCan't decide whether to go for an outdoor or indoor mat? Take a look at our Personalised Doormat Set! You could put your house number or name on the outdoor mat to let people know they are in the right place combined with a more personal welcome message inside!

     

    As well as being a great addition to your own home, a personalised address doormat makes a brilliant house warming gift or wedding present!

     

  • PVC Backed Coir Matting – Everything you need to know!

    Our PVC Backed Coir matting is available in three difference grades and in up to 4 thicknesses. So how do you know which quality and thickness you need?

    PVC Backed Coir

    All coir matting is not the same! It may all be made from coconuts, but there can be vast quality differences in coir matting. As doormat specialists we stock all of the grades at Make An Entrance. We are here to help you understand the differences and therefore choose the correct quality or grade for your purposes.

    So what are the main differences in the different grades and quality?

     

    Luxury and commercial grade coir matting has more fibres per metre than the budget grade products. This results in a denser pile, more uniform colour and less shedding - ultimately the luxury and commercial grade products will last longer too.  So how do I know which of the three grades of PVC Backed Coir will best suit my purpose? Here is our brief rundown on the three options:

    Commercial / Heavy Duty Grade - For commercial use and when only the best will do.

    Our Heavy Duty Commercial Grade PVC Backed Coir is The highest quality cut to size coir matting on the market. This is the material we supply to hotels, restaurants and other businesses. The bristles are packed tightly together to give a very firm brushing action and the colour is uniform. Minimal (if any) shedding after the first 2 weeks. This is also our recommended grade when it comes to ease of wheelchair accessibility.

    Available in 17mm, 20mm, and 24mm thicknesses

    Superior Grade - Ideal choice for home use.

    Our Superior PVC Backed cut to size coir matting is a dense surface and uniform colour which looks very smart. Some shedding is normal with any coir matting but with our superior grade matting this dies down quickly. A noticeably superior grade product.

    Available in 17mm, 20mm, 24mm and 30mm thicknesses.

    Budget Grade - Choose this when cost is the main concern.

    A lower cost option than our superior product, our Budget PVC Backed cut to size coir matting still has an excellent brushing action and is effective at removing dirt.

    It does not have a uniform colour, it will shed more and won't last as long as our superior and commercial grades of coir but is ideal when price is the deciding factor.

    Available in 15mm or 17mm thicknesses.

    PVC Backed Coir

    What thickness of PVC Backed Coir do I need?

     

    The answer to this question is entirely dependent on the depth of your mat well or recess into which the PVC Backed Coir is being laid. Ideally we recommend that the coir mat is flush with the surrounding floor to avoid any possible trip hazard. Often people make the assumption that the depth is related to the quality or durability of the coir and that the thicker the better. This is not true, the durability and quality is all to do with the density of coir and weave as explained above!

    Where can I use Cut to Size PVC Backed Coir?

     

    The short answer is really it is best used in an internal mat well or recess. Why? Because cut to size PVC Backed Coir has an unfinished edge which is designed to be protected by the edge of a mat well or recess to avoid fraying.

    The reason it is best for use internally is that the PVC backing does not allow moisture to drain quite like a woven back so for an external mat that is likely to get rained on directly the mat will not dry out properly which can cause it to perish. This is especially important if you choose one of our Premium Grade Coloured Coir options. Exposing it to the elements will cause the dye used to fade and the natural coir colour will soon reappear.

    Still have questions about PVC Backed Coir? Why not give us a call!

  • Underfloor heating compatible door mats? What do I need to know?

    A common query we get asked in customer services is whether we sell underfloor heating compatible door mats. The answer is yes and we are more than happy to help you find the right doormat to work with your system.
    If you have under floor heating you’ll already be familiar with having to give consideration to your heating when choosing floor coverings and your doormat should be no exception. Mats with PVC and rubber backings are not suitable for use with under floor heating as the warmth can cause the matting to stick to the floor.

    Underfloor Heating Compatible Door Mats

    Our woven backed mats are the ideal solution for use with underfloor heating and are available in a range of standard sizes and thicknesses as well as our Made to Measure Traditional Doormat made to your exact size and shape specifications. We can even personalise your mat with a motif or lettering and for awkward shaped areas can work to a template so you can be sure of an exact fit.

    Underfloor Heating Compatible Door Mats

    Underfloor Heating Compatible Door Mats for a mat well

    If you have a shallow mat well within a floor that has underfloor heating then our Ultra Thin Synthetic Coir (Weave Pile) is ideal. With a heat resistant backing, this product is ideal for use with underfloor heating. It is also a little softer under foot due to it's more looped pile rather than a bristle pile. The backing is made from recycled rubber making, and as the synthetic fibre is very stain resistant, you are likely to be able to keep the same mat for a long time, making this an eco-friendly choice in terms of longevity.
