Stepping through the front door, the right mat can transform a simple greeting into a grand entrance. At Grimeford Mill, we understand that entrance matting is not just about keeping the floors clean; it’s about setting the tone for your home or business. That’s why we’ve curated our top five entrance matting styles, which perfectly balance functionality with visual appeal. From the robust coir mats to luxurious throw-down options, we have compiled our favourites that promise both style and durability. Let’s dive in!

1. Coir Mats

Starting off strong with coir mats, one of our most popular choices and for good reason! Made from natural coconut fibre, these mats are exceptionally tough and have excellent scraping capabilities, making them ideal for removing dirt and moisture from shoes in high-traffic areas. Our coir mats are available in various colours, thicknesses, and can be ordered made-to-measure, allowing them to fit perfectly within any recessed mat well or they can be placed directly on the floor with our non-slip backing. Although mainly functional, these mats also bring a natural, rustic look to entrances, blending seamlessly with both modern and traditional décor. Coir mats are a great choice for a range of commercial properties including shopping centres, schools, and offices, as well as for your home.

2. Brush Mats

Brush mats are another excellent choice for entrance matting, offering a great alternative for when coir might not be appropriate. These mats are made from 100% synthetic fibres which effectively trap debris and moisture, ensuring that dirt stays at the door and not on your premises. Manufactured from durable polypropylene, the fibres do not moult or shed, are fade-resistant, and can handle daily wear and tear. Brush mats are suitable for commercial settings with high foot traffic and also make an excellent choice for busy households. Similar to our coir mats, our brush mats are also available in a vibrant range of colours (blue, red, green, russet, and more) and can be purchased custom-sized.

3. ADEM Rib Mats

Our ADEM rib mats are a heavy-duty style of entrance mat, designed with a ribbed texture that offers a smart and efficient way to trap dirt and moisture. The ribbed design not only enhances the mat's cleaning capability but also adds a touch of sophistication to your entryway. Made from high-quality synthetic fibres, these mats are incredibly durable and can withstand heavy use. Their sleek design and functional efficiency make them a top choice for anyone looking to combine aesthetics with performance.

4. Runner Mats

Runner mats are a fantastic choice for longer corridors or entryways, providing protection and cleanliness across extended areas. These mats are designed to handle a high volume of foot traffic, capturing dirt and moisture over larger areas. Due to their length, runner mats are also a practical option for when you want to protect your flooring from scratches, dents, and scuffs (perhaps if you have tile, wood, or vinyl/lino), providing a cost-effective solution to help save on maintenance costs. Our runner mats are available in a range of colours and patterns, offering the flexibility to complement any interior design scheme, making them as decorative as they are practical.

5. Luxury Throw-Down Mats

Finally, for those looking for an instant upgrade to their entrance, our luxury throw-down mats are the perfect option. These mats are made from 100% plush, high-twist nylon, that instantly enhances the look of any entranceway. Besides their deluxe appeal, these mats are highly functional, and equipped with absorbent fibres and slip-resistant backing. They are easy to clean and maintain, making them not only a luxurious choice but also a sensible addition to any home or office. Our luxury throw-down mats are available in a range of vibrant colours, as well as speckled design options to match perfectly with all sorts of environments.

At Grimeford Mill, we pride ourselves on producing high-quality entrance mats that meet the needs of both homeowners and businesses. Our mats are designed to offer superior performance, ensuring that your premises remain clean, safe, and welcoming.
