A lot of us are animal lovers. Animals are an integral part of many of our lives in one-way or another.

Whether it is an elegant cat doormat or funny dog doormats, these cute doormats are sure to make a good impression on all of your guests.
The first and most obvious purpose behind a doormat at your front entrance is to add an aesthetic dimension to your area. An aesthetically pleasing entrance is more likely to make a good first impression. Animal doormats fulfill this purpose in a unique manner because of their designs. An owl doormat or bird doormat can add charm to your entryway. A animal door mat can add a humorous element, while a fish doormat may add an aquatic touch to a home near the beach. These animal doormats will give your guests a good idea of who you are and where some of your interests lie. Continue Reading Below
More importantly, however, is the protective quality that doormats bring to the area. While these may look like cute doormats, they are in actuality very tough products that can help keep existing surfaces protected and interior areas clean. Although cat, bird, and dog doormats may have different shapes and designs on them, they all bring a better level of protection to the porch or patio they are placed on.
A lot of this has to do with the materials that the animal doormats are made from. Typically, these cute doormats are made from coir and rubber materials. These are the perfect materials to make doormats with. Coir is a naturally occurring resource that is extracted from the husks of coconuts. It is a tough material that comes in handy on doormats for boot scraping purposes. For example, when someone rubs or scrapes their dirty, wet, and muddy footwear over the coir surface of an animal door mat, the coir material will latch onto the outdoor debris particles and keep them held within their fibers until the mat is cleaned. There is usually enough coir on the surface of animal doormats to allow for the scraping of even the hard to reach areas of footwear.
The rubber material utilized in doormats is usually for the purposes of providing better floor protection and traction. Whether you have an owl doormat, a fish doormat, or dog doormats, it is likely that they will possess a backing or frame that is made of rubber. The type of rubber used is usually a recycled or reclaimed rubber. Rubber is a material that enhances traction. When walking over rubber-backed animal doormats, the chances of them slipping out from under your feet are greatly reduced. The rubber material can grip onto existing surfaces like wood and concrete very well.
Given the materials that they are made from, these cute doormats are perfect for outdoor use. Usually, outdoor weather conditions are a factor that can cause concern for the longevity of a product. Coir and rubber, however, will not face this concern because they can resist the damaging effects of moisture and UV rays. Both coir and rubber prevent the development of mold and mildew that commonly results from prolonged exposure to moisture like rain water. After all, it would be weird if a fish doormat couldn’t handle a bit of water.
If you have a love for animals and wildlife, you will be pleased to know that our line of animal doormats qualifies as eco-friendly products. It is the coir and recycled/reclaimed rubber that makes them eco-friendly. Coir is eco-friendly because it is a naturally occurring resource and its production leaves behind no hazardous non-biodegradable waste. Recycled and reclaimed rubbers are considered eco-friendly because they take unused rubber out of landfills and reuse them for new products. Having these mats around can help you contribute to keeping the environment safer for the animals that you love.
Whether you want a cat doormat, a bird doormat, or another animal themed mat, the Floor Mat Company has you covered. The benefits of our animal doormats should not be overlooked. They will provide a great aesthetic enhancement to your home’s entrance while also keeping the area safer and cleaner than it was before. These are eco-friendly and cost-effective products that will help bring a bit of your personality and interests to the front door for all you guests to appreciate.
