Stop dirt and debris at your doorway and add an accent to your home's exterior style with a doormat that's both pretty and practical.

Types of Doormats

Types of Doormats

From spring rains to summer sand, autumn mud, and winter snow, dirty shoes and feet are a fact of life. And nothing mucks up a clean floor, rug, or carpet faster than a soiled pair of shoes. But with a good, hardworking doormat, you can get one step closer to catching that unwanted grime before it even hits the inside of your home. We've sorted through the options—rubber, coir/poly coir, wood, and coco/natural fibers—to help you choose the doormat that's right for you and your needs.

Rubber

Rubber doormats may be solid or have a wide, open pattern. They are extremely durable and a snap to clean—a hose and a scrub brush are all you need. Less decorative in nature, the color palette of rubber doormats tends to be limited to black.

Coco/Natural Grasses

Coco or natural fiber doormats are made of natural materials with a rough surface texture, which helps to clean off shoes and boots. The weave and texture of these differs based on design and material.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Doormats are the first of your home's floor coverings to take abuse, weathering snow, sleet, hail, rain, and heat, all for the purpose of keeping your house as clean as possible. So it pays to invest in a doormat that's going to work hard and look good, too. To do that, you'll need to review key purchase considerations, including gripping/nonslip backing, boot scraper, size, style, and care. This short overview can help.

Gripping/Nonslip Backing

To stay in place, some doormats supply a gripping or nonslip backing. This takes a variety of forms—sometimes rubber feet on the bottom, for example.

Boot Scraper

Many doormats are naturally equipped with a texture that's good for scraping the bottom of boots and shoes. However, some doormats will have an additional piece attached just for this purpose.

Size

Any doormat should be almost the same width as the door. Wider is fine, as long as you have the floor space, but if it's too narrow, you won't be able to catch sufficient dirt.

Style

Many doormats are strictly functional, with little attention paid to design or style. Some, however, combine good looks with practicality, offering patterning of materials or images that accent the door or architecture of the home.

Care

Doormats should be easy to clean, either with a quick wash with soap and water or a good shake and vacuuming.
