An indoor doormat needs to be absorbent 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 door mat 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 door mats.
You may also want your doormat to contribute to the interior design of your home. There are lots of door mats that are entirely functional but our list should bring you plenty of stylish options, including our top pick from Oliver Bonas, which is made from coconut coir and features a contemporary geometric pattern.
With plenty of five star reviews, this door mat from Oliver Bonas is certainly a top pick for both style and functionality. While the coir composition should do a great job of removing dried on mud and grit from your shoes, the colourful geometric pattern will ensure your entranceway is bright, cheerful and welcoming.
Although this rug is plain compared to our top pick, if you’re looking for a large indoor door mat to place by your French doors, this mat receives top points for functionality. Those conscious about the environment will be pleased to learn that this mat is made from recycled materials. It’s also machine washable, so after a particularly muddy walk or mess around in the garden, you know it’s easy to get clean.
Jute is a great alternative to coir. It’s made from a tough plant that is used to make rope and cloth, which showcases its extremely hard wearing and tough composition. Available to buy in both soft pink and grey, this is the ideal doormat for neutrally toned interiors. There are also two sizes to choose from so you can co-ordinate your back door, front door and your patio doors.
Made from softer cotton, this is the perfect secondary door mat to pick up any residue dirt from the abrasive doormat outside. Blending neutral browns with warm, dusty orange, the fox pattern of the doormat makes it homely and welcoming and perfect for traditional interiors. It’s also good to know that this mat is machine washable, so you can keep it clean, especially after those muddy walks.
As an alternative to coir and jute, rubber is durable, hard wearing and easy to keep clean. With its non slip base, this mat is the perfect choice for tiled and stone floor hallways and you can always choose to move it outside if you want a change at a later date. For a decorative touch, the mat features a Moorish-inspired geometric pattern.
Featuring soft tones of grape, fuschia, green and cream, this doormat will make a pretty addition to a range of hallways, whether you’re looking to add a splash of decoration or integrate it into your colour scheme. Made from 100% natural coir, this mat is durable and hard wearing while being abrasive enough to remove the dirt from the bottom of shoes.
