Stylish doormats

Sara Assadi

Doormats are a welcoming detail at your front door and also something to dry off your shoes on a rainy day. A doormat is both a practical and stylish part of your interior decor. We have gathered some fun and trendy options from some popular brands like the Coir doormat.

Stylish doormats

On wet and muddy days, it’s nice to be able to brush off your shoes a little before coming into your home, and the best way to do that is with a rug outside the door.

Doormats are available in many different models and designs. Common to all of them is that they can withstand wear and tear and are easy to brush or shake off when they have become a little too grubby. They also create a pleasant atmosphere outside your front door. Here are seven popular models.

Etol Matta Rope Grey 70x120cm

1. Etol Matta Rope

This solid rope rug looks great at any entrance. The design and colour mean that dirt is well camouflaged until you get around to cleaning the mat, and it also looks great on a balcony.

The model is 70x120 cm, which is a bit wider than the standard size of a doormat, and the design is thick and soft.

6. Hay 508323

This doormat from Danish company Hay is woven in durable jute and available in several different colour combinations. The mat feels strong and robust, and works just as well as a doormat in the hall as inside a patio door.

Dixie Filip Grey 60x90cm

7. Dixie Jute

A stylish, durable and robust jute rug that easily keeps unwanted gravel and moisture out of your home. More and more products are now made from jute, and new treatment methods make it much softer than the rather coarse weave you might first think of.

This rug is hand-woven and available in four different natural colours – just choose the one that best suits your door!

3 tips for buying doormats

  1. Think about your weather. A doormat where you get lots of rain or snow should probably be made from a different material to a doormat for a cottage by the sea or a balcony door. Choose a heavy rug if you live somewhere windy!

  2. Maybe buy two. Maybe you actually need two mats: a sturdy one outside the door and another one inside for when you take off your boots.

  3. Measure your door. Most doormats come in standard sizes, but double-check the width of your door anyway, to make sure the mat is neither too wide nor too narrow.
