Having dirty shoes before walking into your home can be quite frustrating as you risk tracking unwanted debris onto your floors, carpets, and rugs. This can be especially concerning if you have children or pets in your home.
Door mats are an important accessory for any home or building, they serve a practical purpose by helping to keep your floors clean and dry by trapping dirt, mud, and moisture from shoes as people walk into your home.
Types of door mats
In addition to keeping your floors clean, door mats can also add a touch of style to your entryway. The IKEA range offers a wide range of colours, materials, and designs to choose from, so you can find the perfect door mat that complements your home's décor.
When choosing a door mat, consider the colour, size and design that complements best with your decor. You can either opt to match the decor of a room or add a pop of colour to a neutral space. Keep in mind that the material it is made of will also make a big aesthetic difference.
Indoor mats come in a range of colours, patterns, and designs, some mats feature textured surfaces, raised patterns that can massage the feet or anti-slip underlays for additional traction.
Microfiber mats are common indoor mats made from synthetic materials, they are often used indoors and can be machine-washed for easy cleaning.
Outdoor rugs slip-resistant, easy to clean, and have a high-traction surface that effectively traps moisture and dirt. They are durable, moisture-resistant, and have a rough texture as they are often made from coconut fibres.
If you are looking for a way to add a distinctive touch to your home's entrance, customising your doormats with a message or image of your choice is a great option. You can choose from a variety of colours, fonts, and designs to create a doormat that reflects your personality and style.
