Welcome people into your home by placing cool doormats at the entrance. First impressions matter the most; and when you’re at someone’s door preparing to knock, the first thing you see is the front door mat. Does it look inviting, modern and clean, or is it rather boring and really dirty? What’s the first thing that comes into mind when stepping on a dusty doormat? You certainly don’t feel welcome; that’s why your home should have the coolest mats. This way everyone at your door will feel invited and comfortable.

Functional purpose
Before buying the most beautiful and appealing mat that you can find on the market, you should pay a little attention to function. Doormats are meant to scrape off dirt and grime from people’s feet. It is important to invest in mats made of quality, durable materials such as rubber or coir. These trap dirt and they don’t allow chemicals and bacteria inside your home. This way your home’s floor is preserved clean, as well as the air inside your residence.
Size & thickness
Now let’s pay a little more attention to size and thickness. Prior to investing in a doormat, you should measure your door’s width. A mat should have 80-85% of the general size of the front door. You can go bigger if you’d like, but not smaller. Your guests should be able to walk with both feet comfortably onto the mat. As far as the thickness is concerned, make sure that when you open the door, the mat doesn’t move out of place. A mat that’s thinner is more comfortable and convenient to use because it is easier to clean and maintain.
