Are you in need of an outdoor door mat, perhaps for outside your office building, retail store, or simply to use outside your home? Outdoor Door Mats can be a great investment as they help to keep your floors clean by keeping dirt and mud outside.
You may be tempted to purchase a similar design to your indoor mat. Perhaps for uniformity or simply for convenience. After all, it seems to do the job well, right?
Wrong. Indoor mats are not suitable for use outdoors, as they are often made from absorbent cotton or synthetic fibres, meaning they will not fare well outdoors, and will certainly not last long in weathered conditions.
Not to worry, though! We are here to help you, with our 5 exclusive best picks for outdoor door mats. They are designed with high quality rubber, which is naturally hard wearing and provides fantastic grip - ideal for use outside of buildings.

Now that you have seen our top picks for outdoor entrance mats, here is a quick reminder of what to look for when shopping for outdoor matting:
Standard entrance mats should not be used outdoors, as they are usually made from cotton materials, and are designed to absorb excess moisture. If these mats are used outside, they can become sodden and useless very quickly - losing their grip and becoming slippery.
FAQ - "Can I use Coir Matting outdoors?"
Unfortunately, our Coir Matting is not suitable for outdoor use. This is because they are designed with PVC backing, which is great for fitting into mat-wells but does not allow for drainage. If you are looking for a coir mat to use outdoors, look for one within a rubber base which features good sized drainage holes, allowing both for a secure grip and to keep water, mud and debris free from entrance ways.
