Our line of welcome mats is meant to convey to your guests the idea that you are a warm, hospitable person who loves having people come over. It is amazing how much meaning can be conveyed in the one simple word that is common to these mats: Welcome.
Regardless of whether a welcome doormat is placed in a residential or commercial setting, it will add to the area’s aesthetic and décor. The level of design on these decorative welcome mats can vary depending on the product, but they are meant to look great in front of any door. Some welcome mats have a simple, almost minimalist design layout on them suited for people with a more modest sense of style. For the more flamboyant consumer, there are welcome mats with fantastic design patterns that are sure to catch attention. Whichever personality type you possess, there is sure to be the welcome doormat out there for you. These unique welcome mats are best placed outside of your front door, since that is where most of your guests will enter your home or small business.
The reason why some of these welcome mats are well suited for the outdoors is because of the coir material that they are often made with. Coir is a natural and eco-friendly product that is made from the fibers of coconut husks. This material has been used for a number of purposes since ancient times. Welcome mats are just the latest beneficiaries of the outstanding qualities provided by coir. Families in India and Sri Lanka have staked their livelihoods on using natural methods of collecting and harvesting coir through techniques passed down from one generation to the next. It is still used today and has been put to use in doormats and welcome mats everywhere. An outdoor welcome mat made of coir is able to resist the harmful effects of moisture and UV rays. It prohibits the formation of unwanted byproducts like mold and mildew, and does not degrade and break apart when frequently exposed to sunlight. As a result, a welcome doormat made of coir can last comfortably for extended periods of time. Decorative welcome mats made of coir may look good, but they are also built to last. They are so durable that we are confident you and your guests will be impressed by the mats’ resilience. They will provide a warm welcome to those seeking shelter from bad weather.
These unique welcome mats may be inviting to your guests, but they are not as friendly to dirt and other outside debris. Welcome mats are supposed to help you keep the inside areas of your home or business clean. If the mat is made of coir, even better! Coir is a great material for this because its fibers are thick and tough enough to effectively scrape off debris from incoming footwear. As an added bonus, an outdoor welcome mat is very likely to keep the dirt trapped on its surface, preventing the mess from being taken indoors. Furthermore, it is exceedingly easy to maintain the cleanliness and usability of these mats: simply shake them off or vacuum them to wholly remove them of virtually all dust and debris particles. In short, a welcome doormat is a great way to help keep things clean.
Sometimes our welcome mats come with rubber or PVC material. The primary purpose behind the inclusion of these materials is safety. Some of our decorative welcome mats come with a design pattern over their surfaces or borders that are made of rubber. The purpose behind this is traction. Rubber comes with a high degree of friction that allows for a better amount of grip for the feet. Some other welcome mats come with a backing made of PVC. The purpose behind PVC backing is to help the outdoor welcome mat stay in place. As an added feature, many welcome mats have textured surfacing built on to the surface to afford you and your guests an even higher and more impressive degree of traction and slip-resistance. A mat that slips out of place is no way to welcome anyone.
It needs to be mentioned that welcome mats mat from coir and recycled rubber are eco-conscious products and make for a great way to preserve and maintain our environment’s well-being. Most of the recycled rubber used in our welcome mats is derived from old automobile tires. This lends each outdoor welcome mat the strength and durability of the tires from which they are made – a benefit which is just as important to consumers as the product being environmentally friendly.
Coir and rubber welcome mats are long-lasting thanks to those durable materials, but they are also highly protective. Nothing is less welcoming than a battered or damaged doorstep, which can even create a safety hazard. But a welcome doormat can provide a protective barrier against wear and tear from constant foot traffic.
You can expect any of our welcome doormat products to bear the word ‘welcome’, making your doorstep as inviting as possible. But different welcome mats will have vastly varying looks. Some mats will have the wording painted on them, often accompanied by printed patterns or pictures, while others might feature rubber sections with the wording embossed upon them in raised lettering. Our unique welcome mats all have a distinctive aesthetic. In addition to the year-round welcome mats we offer, we sometimes carry seasonal mats for specific occasions. What better way to invite guests into your home for a Christmas party than with a festive outdoor welcome mat in front of your door? No matter which option you go for, a welcome doormat from Rubber-Cal will always send the right message and look first-class.
