Door MatsPosted on: June 29th, 2010 by Charles Pruett
You might not think there’s much to door mats. Most people probably think of a front door or welcome mat as being a flat, boring, rectangular piece of rubber, or a fuzzy, scruffy section of material that is unattractive and there only to wipe off their feet, and to be (generally) ignored the rest of the time. Don’t you, now, when you stop to think about it, think that most people probably don’t even wash or clean their own front door mats?
Maybe it’s just me, but until I started learning about these fantastic mats available today, I always thought ornate or decorative door mats was kind of a silly investment, and that most of them were much too expensive. But nothing could be further from the truth. Recycled rubber door mats, for instance, are not only tough, durable, and practical; they’re also good looking, spacious, provide non-slip qualities, and help protect expensive flooring indoors by providing an excellent surface for wiping feet on porches and in breezeways.
