In the market for a brand new indoor doormat? Sensible idea! Especially since a hallway is the first place guests see when they step foot into your home. With this in mind, it'd be a smart idea to spend money on something that matches your home decor, to ensure it won't stand out like a sore thumb – a doormat that will complement your flooring, paint colours, wall art and more. This one small purchase can make such a difference. Wave goodbye to plain indoor doormats and hello to these fun finds. To create a truly tidy welcome – and a stylish one.

What to look for in an indoor doormat? Ideally, it should be waterproof and abrasive, to soak up excess moisture from your shoes and remove any mud or grit that you may otherwise bring into the home. This means, material-wise, you should be looking at an indoor doormat made from coir, a rough synthetic mix, or jute, a plant used to make rope and cloth. Rubber is also a popular choice for indoor doormats. 

Our 12 favourite finds are just below, but if you are redecorating your hallway entirely, then head to our hallway ideas page afterwards, for some inspiration.
