There are many reasons why you may want to purchase a red door mat. For most people, it’s simply a case of using a floor mat to brighten up a house, the vibrant red mats work particularly well in a white walled room, for example. Others like to use a red door mat in cinemas and theatres to replicate that glitzy "red carpet" experience.
For businesses, a Red Door Mat may be used because it matches the corporate colour scheme, or to mark certain areas of the business such as a kitchen or other staff area. Red Door Mats became more popular in 2016 as this was, in the Chinese Zodiac, the year of the fire monkey. People who practice Feng Shui acknowledged this by adding bright vibrant red coloured items into their home including door mats.
Whatever your reason for wanting your entrance mats to be red, we have created this list of our top Red Door Mats to help you decide the mat which best meets your needs.
The TrafficGuard is our most vibrant red coloured mat and a great all rounder.
It is available in three sizes, starting at 60cm x 90cm, making it suitable for standard entrances. Its low profile height of 7mm will allow doors to pass over it and, when the weather turns wet, it can hold an impressive 5.4 litres of moisture per square metre keeping the rest of the entrance way dry and safe from slip hazards.
The TrafficGuard Door Mat is competitively priced making it one of our most popular door mats and can be used in both homes and commercial entrances.
If the TrafficGuard is a bit too bright, then you may want to consider the Renown Entrance Mat as an alternative. It’s actually a two-colour mat with fibres of black and red together. This creates a somewhat “toned down” red colour and is a popular option for commercial entrances.
One of the main benefits of the Renown Mat is that it is machine washable at 30 degrees making it easy to keep clean and looking professional. It has good dirt and water absorption properties and it available in six standard sizes making it popular in offices, shop fronts and hotels.
The PlushChoice is another black and red commercial entrance mat, but with low prices for a 60cm x 90cm mat it’s one of thebest value mats in the range. It can also be ordered cut to size from two roll sizes, 90cm and 120cm, so that you can get the perfect fit for your home or workplace.
The Plush Choice Door Mat is made from 100% Polypropylene that scrapes dirt / dust and soaks up water, with a PVC backing to keep it in place.
When used in a commercial premises, a door mat needs to be hard wearing, robust and extra effective. Meet AquaProtect, our durable commercial door mat. It’s the highest scoring Red Door Mat in all of our rating categories for Crush Resistance, Soil Resistance and Water Retention.
This is partly due to the raised waffle design and Decalon fibres making it effective at scraping dirt and allowing it to absorb up to 6 litres of water per square metre.
As one of our toughest door mats, the AquaProtect is ideal for busy entrances, lobbies and hallways in buildings with high traffic such as schools and airports.
Finally, for a mat that’s a much darker shade of red, we recommend the EntryBrush. This black and red door mat is available in custom sizes from rolls 90cm and 120cm wide, or from 5 standard sizes with prices starting from £18.95.
The EntryBrush is a low profile door mat making it ideal for areas with wheelchair access. It features a ribbed pattern which is great at scraping dirt from shoes and can be easily cleaned with a vacuum cleaner.
