Flowers have been a part of human life since man first learned how to walk. Since plants and flowers have been around for far longer than we have, it should come as no surprise that they have become a popular presence in our collective psyche. Today, you can see flowers of various kinds used as a design theme in a vast multitude of different products. A flower doormat from the Floor Mat Company is just one such example of a flora-inspired good. Flowers are a natural design option for any outdoor decorative doormats because of the earthy and welcoming aesthetic they lend to the area. However, one should not assume that flower-themed entrance matting is only good for aesthetic value. Our line of floral doormat products functions as all-season floor mats that provides for improved floor safety and indoor cleanliness at cost-effective rates.
Chances are likely that most people will acquire a flower doormat simply for aesthetic value. That is fine because these are good looking decorative doormats that can enhance the physical appeal of any home. The secret behind their appeal lies within their designs. Artisans carefully paint the flowers onto the coir surfaces of the mats and the end result is a brilliantly designed matting option that can catch attention. The design options for floral entrance matting are vast. Whether you want a colorful sunflower doormat to brighten your doorway or an elegant Fleur-de-Lis doormat to add some old world élan to the main entrance, the Floor Mat Company has a flower doormat that is perfect for your needs.

Beyond their design value, our doormats are valuable for the functional and practical qualities they bring to a home entryway. It is important to have a floral doormat because it can help keep the interior areas of your home clean. The secret behind this lies within the coir material used to make each flower doormat.
Coir is a naturally occurring resource that is obtained from the outer husks of coconuts. The coir typically used on entrance matting is thick and rough to the touch. This is perfect for boot scraping and dirt catching functions. For example, when dirty footwear is scraped across the coir surface of a Fleur-de-Lis doormat, the coir fibers will flush out and catch any debris particles on the shoe or boot (dirt, mud, sand, gravel, etc). The outdoor debris is then stuck on the mat, therefore keeping the inside areas of your home cleaner and safer.
Since these doormats are designed to be placed outside an entrance area, it only makes sense that they are all-season floor mats. Thanks to their coir surfaces, they can survive when left out in the intense summer sunlight or in a cold rainy winter day. Coir is the perfect material to stand up to elemental factors. Moisture from rain or snow will be prevented from developing harmful byproducts like mold, whereas UV rays from the sun will not be able to degrade the tough fibers of the material. After all, what good would a sunflower doormat be if it couldn’t handle a bit of sun?
Another great function served by our flower doormat products is floor protection. Patios are normally made of materials like wood or concrete. As sturdy as they might be, they are still susceptible to damage and degradation over time. The front or back entrance is particularly susceptible because it is normally a high traffic area of the home. Damage can be greatly reduced, and in some cases even eliminated, if good entrance matting is put in place. The coir surfaces of these mats are a good barrier between heavy physical objects and the existing floor below. Furthermore, most floral doormat options come with a backing made of either recycled rubber or vinyl. These backings provide an added layer of protection for the floor they rest on. Additionally, they grip onto surfaces, allowing for more traction and safety for people going in and out of your home.
These mats give you the benefit of having “Green” eco-friendly products at your door. A flower doormat is considered eco-friendly because the materials used to make them help to reduce non-biodegradable waste in the environment. Coir occurs naturally, while the recycled or reclaimed rubber in them takes old rubber out from the ecosystem and reuses in efficient new ways.
Whether they come in the form of a red rose welcome mat, a sunflower doormat, or a Fleur-de-Lis doormat, a coir and rubber floral doormat will be the perfect addition to your home’s entryways. Your home will be kept free of outdoor contaminants thanks to the coir surface material on each mat and the patio surfaces will be protected thanks to the rubber or vinyl backing frame. You will even benefit from improved anti-slip traction, even in inclement weather situations. Best of all, however, the painted floral designs on each flower doormat will make your house look good to all your guests!
