5 Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing An Entry Mat

We know that this little space between the outside and your home is not always easy to decorate, especially when it comes to rugs.

When choosing rugs for your lobby, you need to consider not only the natural elements, but also the style of your home, and blend them both tastefully.

Thinking about this dilemma, Luxos Urbanos has prepared a short guide that will help you choose the right entry mat for you:

1. Size

Make sure the size of the mat is proportional to the size of the entry. A small 2'x3 'rug in a giant entrance will look tiny. Although halls can come in all shapes and sizes, be aware that the scale of your carpet will complement the scale of the space.

2. The door

Open and close your door several times and note the space between the bottom of the door and the entrance floor. While you may love the feel of thick toe hair, the constant friction of opening and closing a door significantly shortens the life of the carpet.

Also, it is more difficult to keep fur rugs on the door, shorter fur rugs tend to be sturdier.

3. Cleanliness

Consider the ease of cleaning the carpet of your dreams. A white cotton rug may be beautiful to look at for a day or two, but it won't be easy to stay sleek and shiny for much longer.

Snow, mud, dirt, and / or water may come into contact with the entrance mat, and even if people don't wear shoes inside your home, they are likely to take a step or two inside to remove their shoes.

Indoor and outdoor rugs (usually made of synthetic materials) are a great option.

4. Prints

Patterned rugs can be a good option! The well-chosen pattern not only adds visual interest to a space, but also temporarily hides the dirt until you have a chance to clean the carpet.

For most entries, a variety of colors and an interesting pattern extend the aesthetic life of a rug much longer than if the rug had a simple, solid design.

5. Anti Slip

For our custom rugs you can request that a non-slip finish layer be added.

For other rugs, use a rubber layer under the mat to prevent it from slipping

This way your carpet will stay fixed and you won't have to worry about anything.
