I just moved into a new home and feel very lucky that I work for a company that sells, among other things, home door mats. We needed a front door mat and also a mat for the back door. I forgot how important these mats were until I noticed how much dirt was being tracked inside our new house. I thought about going to Costco or something to get a mat, but I didn’t want to settle on just anything, so I spent some time to look through the huge selection of entrance mats we have at MatsMatsMats.com.
I decided to go off a customers recommendation whom I had recently spoken to. She bought a couple different patterns of our CleanScrape Mats. She had a friend that had bought our mats and they told her how excellent they were holding up. So I sat down and picked out a couple different CleanScrape styles and sizes I liked. I received them at my house about a week ago… delivered to my “front door.” They look awesome. Being in our early 30′s we play all kinds of sports and get plenty dirty. We got the Celtic Lattice mat for our back door so any water can drain all the way through as it is not a covered area. For the front we purchased the Welcome Iron mat. We were able to get them in matching coffee colors.
People have different tastes (styles, colors, etc.) and different needs (sizes, quantities, etc.), but whatever your needs are I’m sure MatsMatsMats.com will have what your looking for… and if not, they can always make custom door mats (custom sizes or custom logo door mats) to fit your needs. So, whether you’re moving into a new house or apartment – like me – or just need to replace your existing door mats, it might behove you to check out the selection of mats offered by MatsMatsMats.com. They also offer a huge selection of quality commercial and industrial mats for the workplace, so keep that in mind too!

There are so many different types of door mats being sold today. So, how do you choose the best one for your needs?
First, you need to determine what size doormat you need. A front door mat at an apartment or home with a single door is typically anywhere from an 18″x24″ to a 24″x36″ size mat. The next step is to figure out what matters to you most (color, durability, scraping action, theme, etc.). If you care most about durability and scraping action then you generally want to go with rubber door mats, but if you care more about the look, colors, etc. than you will generally have more luck with carpet topped mats.
However, you can now often get the best of both worlds with colorful, themed, durable rubber door mats designed to bring beauty and functionality to the entry of your home. The wipe your paws doormat pictured is one example.

Door Mats and Entry Mats - Keep The Dirt Outside
Many of the door mats, entry mats and mat runners found today incorporate fashion, durability and functionality. Specifically, many mats today offer improved scraping ability, color fade resistance, improved durability and ease of cleaning. Residential door mats are now designed using the latest fashion trends along with the durability and functionality of commercial matting products.
Therefore, protecting your floors doesn’t need to be a challenge. There are many options available to you depending on your needs. If you have problems with wear and tear in heavy traffic areas; discoloration due to weather; or dirt that is tracked into your home and office, than the proper mat can be the solution to your problems. Mats can help keep your floors clean, provide protection and are easy to clean. Carpet mats trap water, keeping moisture in the mat and dirt off your floors!

Pretty much every front door step I’ve ever stepped upon has a welcome mat of some sort or other, but not so many have entry mats, and I often wonder why. At our house, we have a “no shoes” rule [it comes from my wife’s culture, and I do favor the rule, even though I’m somewhat exempt, working from home and need my “back shoes” on pretty much at all times].
But when the weather is inclement, or when we tend to track in dirt and grime, we typically lay down a cheap throw rug to wipe our feet, and now, after writing these posts, am beginning to wonder why we haven’t invested in a couple of entry mats. Do you have entry mats for your home? Why do we often tend to think of entry mats as being only for businesses, or breezeways? If you’ve got nice carpet or floors you’d rather not have dirtied up, then you might want to consider the practical value of entry mats.

Just last night, while visiting the home of an acquaintance of a guy I was with, I noticed they had one of these beautiful door mats. In fact, the image here is the very mat they had on their doorstep! I was standing there with my buddy, and when I looked down, I said, “Hey! I write about these and other kinds of mats!” I was able to look more closely at the mat and was quite impressed how something of such simple beauty (I know; they’re not museum quality, but they do almost look to be too attractive for the front porch!).
If you’ve always gotten by with the old, black, welcome mats, which I think must “come” with every home built in the U.S, why not buy something that is not only durable and functional, but also decorative as well? Decorative door mats made of recycled rubber can’t be beat for looks and durability.

I think, very soon, I will—admittedly—for the first time, will buy some decorative door mats and a nice kitchen mat for our home. But not just yet. Why? Well…right now we don’t have a kitchen in our home. No, really. The walls are mostly exposed. The sink is gone [thank goodness with new plumbing], no cabinets, we’re down to sub-flooring, and we’re waiting on a guy to come finish framing out the back wall for the sliding glass door that put our entire project on hold for nearly two weeks. Everything revolves around that sliding door being installed: the flooring, the cabinets, the sink…everything but the texture on the walls.
Now, in case you’re saying to yourself, “He doesn’t have to wait for the kitchen to be done to buy a couple of entrance mats to help keep the dirt out of his house as he and workers traipse in and out,” and you’d be right; I just want the mats to serve as some sort of “closure” on the whole remodeling ordeal. Maybe I’ll just buy some plain, inexpensive door mats and replace them with the decorative kind later.

I know, I know…the idea, at first, of giving dear, old dad a door mat for Father’s Day, might seem kind of lame, but nothing could be further from the truth! Trust me; I’m a dad, and sometimes the best gifts are those that leave a lasting impression, or that serve a lasting purpose.
Of course, don’t make the door mat the only gift you give your dad! Think of something he’ll get a lot of use out of; preferably something he enjoys, like maybe a grill, or grilling utensils, or perhaps an old turntable if he has old 45, 78, or 33 RPM, records. If he has a home office, maybe a nice, roll-up, bamboo chair mat to go under his desk to replace the clear plastic one that’s much less attractive.

Now there’s something many of us perhaps don’t give much thought to: car floor mats. In truth, not many of us think about such things as door mats, or kitchen mats, anyway. Well…if you’ve bought a new car recently, or if you’re one of those people who takes impeccable car of his or her car—it’s usually a “guy thing”—then you probably are much more cognizant than most people, but…well, you get the point.
The point is most of us, if we were to look for new car floor mats, would probably go to the auto supply store or local super store to buy them, and that does make sense. But for those of you ARE of the mind about such things, wouldn’t it be great to know you can buy car floor mats that are made of 100% recycled rubber, to be “green” about the whole matter?
And no matter [no pun intended, there] what kind of mats you’re dealing with, you’ll want to make sure you use the right kind of mat cleaner or disinfectant spray to keep them looking great, and helping to keep your auto looking and smelling better.
