The design of your doormat should be top-of-mind when looking for one. You will want the mat to match your home’s decor, especially if it is going to be on your front door.

That shouldn’t mean that this is the only factor to be considered. It is important to think about the mats’ durability. A durable mat will withstand constant foot traffic and be washable multiple times without affecting its shape or colour. Your mat will last longer and be worth its price.

Coir matting is known for its long-lasting durability. Coir doormats made from natural, biodegradable materials make them a favourite of eco-conscious homeowners.

What does a coir doormat look like?

Coir comes from the coconut shell outer husks. Coir is made up of fibers that are separated and processed into yarn-like strings.

Coconut husk fibres have a remarkable durability, making them an excellent choice to make mats. These natural fibres are extremely resistant to water since they are from sub-tropical areas. Coir can take saltwater or fresh water, and it still works as a rug. Coir is also resistant to mold and mildew. These are two common problems for mats placed in moist areas like the bathroom.

Coir doormats are also resistant to fading. You can place them outside on your front doors or any other area that receives direct sunlight.

What other benefits are there to using coir doormats for?

Coir doormats provide many advantages, not only are they durable but also practical for everyday use? Here are a few:

  • Affordable: Coir floor mats are more affordable than fabric and synthetic. Coir doormats offer more value than fabric and synthetic ones due to their durability and affordability.
  • Flexible: Coir carpets are available with a variety colors and finishes. The mat may fade less if it is finished in a natural color. The mat will be fine provided it isn’t placed in direct sunlight. There are many different coloured coir floor mats that you can choose from, so there is something for everyone. You can also buy plain coir mats and design your own using latex paint.
  • Slip proof: Coir is a slippery material that provides good grip. This helps avoid accidents that could occur in slippery areas such a kitchen, bathroom, or outdoor area. Coir doormats can be tough enough to clean mud, water and other substances that could make your shoes slippery.
  • Clean and easy: The majority of coir mats feature an open backing, which allows water to drain. This makes it less likely that dirt will collect on your mat. But for stubborn stains, dried mud and other stubborn spots, you can easily clean the mat with a brush.
