When buying a new front door it is worth investing in a good quality attractive door mat. Door mats capture dirt at your door to protect your flooring inside your home and to keep your entire house clean.
There is a wide range of styles available and you need to choose one that suits your property and complements your new door. You may wish to get a door mat that reflects your personality or you may want a purely practical design.
Amusing Door Mat Designs
There are a number of humorous door mat designs (depending on your definition of amusing!) I have spotted door mats with text such as "Oh No, Not You", "Wow, nice underwear" and "I am not a door mat".
Seasonal Door Mats
There are a range of door mat designs for specific seasons or celebrations including Christmas designs, Halloween designs and Thanksgiving messages.
Custom Made Door Mats
There are companies offering personalised door mats so you can specify a particular message to greet your guests or have your family name printed on the door mat.
Patriotic Door Mats
Some people choose to grace their doorway with a flag design such as a Union Jack door mat.
Door Mat Gifts
If you are struggling to think of a gift for a couple who are getting married, you could buy a door mat with "Mr & Mrs" written on the mat.
Shaped Door Mats
There are various shapes of door mats available such as animals, hearts and moustache shaped door mats.
Door Mat Materials
Door mats are available in a number of different materials including coir, which is a hardwearing natural material, nylon, polypropylene, rubber and cast aluminium. You can even buy washable door mats, which are generally made from cotton, ideal to put by your front door if you have a dog.
Maybe you should consider treating yourself and your doorway to an attractive new door mat to protect your home and say something about yourself.
