Door MatsPosted on: May 11th, 2010 by Charles Pruett
Front door matsâ€¦welcome matsâ€¦entryway matsâ€¦they probably arenâ€™t what folks from the older generations remember anymore. Those of you who are over 40, for instance, when you think of door matsâ€”unless youâ€™ve purchased a lovely door mat in recent yearsâ€”probably picture the unattractive, black, thin, virtually useless â€œWelcomeâ€ mats that have been around practically since civilization beganâ€¦AND STILL ARE!
But like so many things that have evolved with technology, door mats have been transformed into things of beautyâ€¦into home decorations that can be proudly displayed, and from which youâ€™re likely to receive many compliments on! Many of todayâ€™s door mats are made of highly durable, 100% recycled rubber, and are â€œeco-friendlyâ€ meaning they wonâ€™t harm the environment once they do eventually wear out and are thrown away.
Nowadays, door mats have even inspired mats to be used for other practical purposes other than wiping oneâ€™s feet before entering someoneâ€™s home, such as a kneeling pad, which is great when you have to kneel on hard ground and donâ€™t want to bruise your knees. Yes, itâ€™s trueâ€¦gone are the days of those boring, plain, black Welcome mats!
