You might not think thereâ€™s much to door mats.Â 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.Â Donâ€™t you, now, when you stop to think about it, think that most people probably donâ€™t even wash or clean their own front door mats?
Maybe itâ€™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.Â But nothing could be further from the truth.Â Recycled rubber door mats, for instance, are not only tough, durable, and practical; theyâ€™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.
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, â€œHey! I write about these and other kinds of mats!â€ I was able to look more closely at the mat and was quite impressed how something of such simple beauty (I know; theyâ€™re not museum quality, but they do almost look to be too attractive for the front porch!).
If youâ€™ve always gotten by with the old, black, welcome mats, which I think must â€œcomeâ€ 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 canâ€™t be beat for looks and durability.
Most of todayâ€™s outdoor entrance mats are made from 100% durable, recycled rubber, and have either a carpet top surfaceâ€”or something similarâ€”that is designed to catch grime and dust. If youâ€™re not looking for a decorative door mat, but something more conservative, the rib pattern door mat [pictured] is always an excellent choice, with a durable vinyl backing, and are more economically priced if your budget canâ€™t handle something â€œhigher endâ€ and yet you need to â€œcover your tracksâ€ in regards to providing mats for people to wipe their feet on.
And then, once your budget increases, you might want to consider something such as the ever popular CleanScrapeTM outdoor entrance mats, which are much heavier duty, UV resistant, meaning they wonâ€™t fade in sunlight, and the most aggressive entrance mats on the market, made with an eco-friendly, recycled rubber base.
While weâ€™re talking about the increasing popularity of eco-friendly products of every kindâ€”not just matsâ€”those who are unaware will be pleased to know about the abundance of gorgeous, 100% recycled rubber, eco-friendly door mats, like the one pictured here!
Fortunately for most societies around the world, the idea that something recycled is poorly made is no longer a commonly held belief. On the contrary, most customers not only hope for high quality in recycled and organically made products, they expect it! With this in mind, itâ€™s better for the consumer that there are eco products like beautiful and durable recycled rubber door mats [welcome mats] that are not only exceptionally long-lasting, but are also very eye catching!
If youâ€™re looking for low-cost door mats in bulk, you can buy simplicity door mats by the caseâ€”12 per boxâ€”in a variety of colors. Perhaps youâ€™ve got a large complex with many doors and you would like some uniformity but without too great of cost; thatâ€™s when buying in bulk is the best way to go. Fortunately, these mats can also be purchased individually as well.
Or, if youâ€™ve got the budget for it, you might consider something more â€œhomeyâ€ and opt for decorative door mats like those you might place on your own front doorstepâ€”and you just might! Thereâ€™s quite an admirable array of 100% recycled rubber door mats to choose from, and knowing theyâ€™re not only eco-friendly, but extremely durable, easily cleaned, resistant to sun fading and wearâ€¦why not go ahead and include a couple for your home?
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!
