Choose the Right Doormat Guide

What is the difference between portrait and landscape?

Will my mat be made Portrait or Landscape?

Landscape or Portrait refers to the the orientation of the mat. A standard doormat shape is a landscape  orientation, where the distance from right to left across the doorway is the longest edge.

Of course, if your mat is plain, it doesn't matter! You can simply turn your mat to your desired orientation.

However, when you have lettering or numbering, it is important we know which orientation you would like.

Landscape Orientation

Landscape Orientation Mat A standard doormat is usually used in a landscape orientation

‘Landscape’ is the most common orientation for a doormat, with the longest dimension going across the doorway. We make our doormats in this way as standard.

Portrait Orientation

Portrait Orientation Mat Turning the mat to a portrait orientation and ordering a larger size can help encourage people to wipe their feet, keeping your floors cleaner for longer.

However, you may be looking for a ‘runner’ style mat, in which case ‘Portrait’ orientation is best.  This is a really good way to give to ensure that people who forget to wipe their feet still get their shoes well cleaned before they reach your floor coverings as they have had to take two or three steps across the mat.

Some of our Personalised products have an option to choose the orientation, for these products we always use the orientation you have selected rather than the width and length dimensions to determine the location of the printing.

Take a look at our range of Personalised Doormats that are all custom made to order. We can make them in a landscape or portrait orientation depending on your needs.

See how Wikipedia explains Landscape and Portrait.

Tell us what you'd like and we'll make it that way.

All our mats are created ‘Landscape’, unless we are advised otherwise. If you would like the mat ‘Portrait’, then please write these instructions in the notes at checkout, or contact us.
