Now that Spring is practically upon us, I find myself taking several trips down the ‘ol memory lane. In my much younger years I would visit with my family in Minnesota, with my grandfather particularly. He being the archetype ‘50’s man’s man; we would build everything with his hands. He worked at the local beer manufacture called Hamm’s Beer Company. If you are from anywhere east of the Mississippi river you may have heard of it. He also had a small hunting cabin in South Dakota. Visiting this cabin was always my favorite. It was something that he and I would do together, just the boys in the woods…with guns.
I vividly remember the location, the smells, the way the light hit the trees and the cabin. It was truly beautiful. We would spend hours walking in the woods and looking for any game in the area. Even though we never really found much in the times that we went, it was always a great time. It seemed to be more about just getting away and being out in the middle of nowhere. It was as if we simply used the excuse to go hunting as the reason to be there. The cabin however was always my favorite part. It was so cliché and seemingly typical of a “hunting cabin”. It was a log cabin…literally; my grandfather had built it in the 1930’s with his father, and had been used in our family since, even still today. The fire place was stone, and the walls were laden with trophies of he and his fathers’ conquests over the years.
Near each and every door, from inside to outside you would find wildlife rugs of some sort. There was a great variety of them, from entry mats donning Malards, or door mats with Wolves and Deer. It was as if they had collected them over the years to don the cabin with Bears and Turkeys and any other kind of imaginable wildlife scene mats. I always felt that it fit to the cabin and every time that I see an indoor mat with a nature scene it makes me think of that cabin and the Springs that I spent in the wild Dakotas.

The rains are here in good old Southern California and thus the hazards that come with it. You see here in California, and especially in the Los Angeles area, no one knows how to drive in the rain! Despite the fact that we have one of the highest percentages per population of drivers on the road, and a huge transit system, it wouldn’t seem that a little bit of water just frightens everyone. I think that if anyone in Los Angeles ever saw real weather they would cower and hide.
Driving is not the only hazard in Cali with the rains, oh no! You see we just are not equipped to deal with weather, of any kind. We don’t have real seasons here, just Fall and Summer…that’s about it. So when it rains and things get wet, people in buildings, offices, and even retail locations don’t think about putting down entry mats. These mat runners are very useful for giving us patrons and employees a bit a traction on our wet feet as we cross in over that nicely polished, slick floor just waiting to claim its first victim of the new season. I found this out the hard way this very morning.
So as I walked in, coffee in hand, dreams of sugar-plums still dancing in my head, I did not even think that the floor didn’t have commercial indoor outdoor mats and that this would be a rough start to the day indeed. So before I knew it I was staring at the ceiling, on my back, coffee still in hand (I have my priorities you see) and wondering what just happened.
Needless to say after this little snafu, when I came downstairs later for lunch; low and behold nice new office entry mats lay in front of the door. Despite my little brush with death this morning, I am certainly glad to see that tomorrow there will not be a repeat of it. So watch your step, drive safely and here is to a short Winter.

After the New Year’s festivities this last week, I would highly recommend to you as I have to my friends; to invest in new door mats! Needless to say, I most certainly drank far too much on New Year’s, as I’m sure many of us did. Due to my competitive nature, and my fellow New Year’s Eve-ers playing the oh-so fun game of Wizard (Definitely look that one up); I eventually found myself in a peculiar and somewhat uncomfortable situation later in the evening. Namely I found myself passed out on my friends welcome mats.
Now this front door mat was by far not the most comfortable or supportive of entry mats. Though seeing as though I was semi-conscious at the time this fact did not reveal itself to me till the early hours of the morning. Now I know what you’re thinking, these are not made for that. Indeed, home doormats are made for the effective wiping of feet and overall upkeep and cleanliness of the home; agreed. However, I love things that are multi-purposed and if only my dear friends would have found some time to update their door mat to a more “accommodating” mat perhaps I would have woken slightly more refreshed and rejuvenated…still confused of course, but rested perhaps.
Needless to say the Wizard (yours truly) will be updating my own outdoor doormats at home in preparation for another such evening. Fore anything can be a resting place for a wary Wizard and every mat needs a home. So the time for updating those mats is at hands everyone. Trust me your neighborhood wizards will certainly thank you.

This is exactly why our home door mats or our office door mats are just the ticket to keep your sanctum and home nice and tidy.

We finally got some much needed rain here in Los Angeles! I noticed that our office building, as well as other stores that I go to, started putting out their new water absorbing entry mats. No one wants to see there customers sliding around and nice entrance mats can really improve the appeal of a store, office building or your home. I have been to locations that have old office floor mats that you basically slip over after a couple people walk on them.

Matsmatsmats.com has a very large selection of entrance door mats that can handle areas that have little traffic to heavier duty mats that can really soak in and hold the water in the mat. These mats are also easy to clean and maintain.

Logo door mats are ideal for any place of business. Whether you are a restaurant owner, the owner of a retail store or a hair salon you will undoubtedly purchase a door mat for the entry of your establishment. So, why not let entry mats do a little advertising for you too?
There are many different options when it comes to custom logo mats. The mats that are designed exclusively for outdoor use are typically made entirely of rubber. Generally your color options and logo design options are very limited on these types of entrance mats. There are usually limited sizes available as well.
That being said, most businesses purchase entrance mats that are placed on the inside of the entry. The logo mats for this use is typically a vinyl or rubber backed mat with a carpeted to surface (rubber backing being preferred due to better durability). Most manufacturers of these types of mats are able to produce the logo in virtually any colors and almost any design. The mats can be a combination of colors and a large selection of mat sizes (and even custom sizes) are available.
A minimum quantity of mats is not required – you can order a single logo mat. The mats are generally a very inexpensive way to protect the floors at your entrance, prevent excess dirt and debris from entering your establishment and market your business at the same time.

Not every one is looking for ornate door mats for their entryway or porch. If you’re looking to add that “homey” touch, decorative door mats are great, but if you want a less conspicuous mat to place at your entryway, or around your premises, where impressions aren’t (so) important [perhaps you want something less attractive so would-be thieves passing through your business park or shopping strip won’t want to steal your mats], then ordinary, ribbed pattern or other low cost entry door mats are perfect for you.
And you won’t want just one door mat at each doorway. If you have nice carpet or other floors inside your building, you might want to look at placing some durable, non-slip indoor carpet mats to absorb traffic and reduce wear on your interior carpet or hardwood or ceramic floors, which can become slippery when weather is bad; these mats protect your floors as well as help prevent slips.
