Which Doormat Should I Choose?

"Which doormat should I choose?" Is one of the most common questions that we receive. With so many doormat options available, it can be hard to know which doormat to go for. We hope that this blog article helps you answer this question.

Thickness

A long, thicker pile is not always better. Shorter pile mats tend to have a firmer brushing action and can remove dirt more effectively. (Think about how bristly very short cropped hair feels!)

We know that clearance can be an issue when choosing a doormat. Subsequently we have a number of thick and thin doormats available. Our Superior PVC Backed Coir is our thinnest natural coir option, coming in 14mm-30mm thick. Synthetic Coir Matting product are available in 9mm thick, with indoor and outdoor products. For doorways with low clearance our Personalised Indoor Carpet Mats and All Weather Made to Measure Doormats which sit at 5mm thick.

Machine Washable Doormats

We offer a range of Machine Washable Door Mats. These include our thin Personalised Indoor Carpet Mats and All Weather Made to Measure Doormats, as well as the full range of indoor hug rugs. Please check the product packaging/ care and fitting guide provided for washing instructions.

My entrance is an irregular shape, is it possible to get a doormat to fit?

Yes, we love to go above and beyond for our customers to create irregular shaped doormats to their exact specifications.

Our Personalised Door Mats Range has a mat for every home. The most popular being are our Personalised Indoor Carpet Mats and All Weather Made to Measure Doormats. These products are available in a 72 colour pallet or made to a high quality photograph.

Doormats For Underfloor Heating 

PVC Backed doormats are not suitable to go straight onto underfloor heating, because there is no room for heat or potential moisture to escape through the impermeable PVC backing. We recommend this to prevent any potential damage to your doormat or flooring.

However, we large selection of doormats that are compatible with underfloor heating. These include our 100% Natural Plain Coir Standard Doormats, Personalised Doormat Range, Hand-Stitched Traditional Doormat, and many more.

Doormats For a Matwell/Recess

PVC Backed Coir Mats are perfect for matwells.

For a matwell/ recess, we would recommend our Coir Matting Cut to Size products, or our Traditional Hand-Stitched Doormat. Made to the specific dimensions of your matwell for a snug fit.

Our Personalised Doormat Range can all be made for matwells by selecting “Without Border”; “mat well or recess” or “cut to the size specified”. Either trim the doormat to fit yourself, or select for our workshop to do it for you.

Is there such thing as an eco-friendly doormat?
