Thin door mats are crucial for homes or offices where a mat with a low profile is required. As well as durability, water retention, sizes and cost, we also understand that the height/thickness or profile of a mat can be an important feature too.
A thin door mat can make life easier for wheelchair users who may struggle to enter a building with a chunky entrance mat. For others, it’s the gap between the floor and bottom edge of the door that is the controlling factor when choosing a suitable door mat.
Whatever your reasons, we have put together a list of our best thin door mats to help you find the perfect door mat.
With a height of just 4mm, our most thin door mat is the MudProtect.
MudProtect is an absorbent door mat for the home or office with excellent water retention properties and is very good at collecting dirt and mud from shoes. It is available in sizes 75cm x 100cm or 75cm x 150cm and is also available in four colours including azure, slate, oak and pine.
As well as being an ultra-thin door mat, the MudProtect is also machine washable making it easy to care for and it comes with a 5-year guarantee so that you can be assured of a long lifespan.
"Having searched for ages trying to find an ultra thin front door mat, First Mats were the only company that could supply what we needed. The mats were a good price, great quality and arrived in only a few days. I will gladly use First Mats again and would recommend them to anyone." - Paul W. 08/07/2018
Not only is CottonProtect our second most thin door mat at just 5mm, but it is also one of the lowest priced.
CottonProtect is a great value door mat for the home or office, offering excellent water retention qualities although it may not provide as good resistance to soil intrusion as the MudProtect above.
This door mat is machine washable at 30 degrees for easy maintenance and features an integral latex backing to stop it from moving around when on the floor.
CottonProtect is currently available in two sizes, 50cm x 80cm to 90cm x 120cm and in three attractive colours which are blue, charcoal and brown.
"Purchased two cotton protect machine washable door mats, one of each standard size, for front and rear doors to our house. Both are of a good quality and are a reasonable price. Delivery of mats very quick, arriving two days after placing of order. Very pleased we chose FirstMats for our purchase." - C M. 05/01/2018
Our TrafficGuard is a premium thin door mat, suitable for offices and for homes demanding that extra high-quality entrance matting.
The PVC backing crates an overall height of 7mm for this mat, however it does also mean that this is a more durable door mat then many of the thinner alternatives. The backing also helps to keep the mat in place once laid on the floor.
The TrafficGuard is available in various colours and in three sizes from 60cm x 90cm or, for larger homes and offices, up to 120cm x 180cm.
Our Plush Choice is a great value thin door mat, especially for commercial entrances. It is one of our best value door mats available and what’s more, it is also available to order made to measure.
The standard roll widths are 90cm and 120cm. Simply select the roll width and then enter the length in cm for a mat that is a perfect fit.
The Plush Choice door mat is available in four two-tone colours all featuring black fibres, giving it a more corporate look whilst hiding dirt and moisture. This makes it ideal for commercial entrances with medium volumes of traffic.
"Great mat, size exactly as odered, arrived well wrapped. Excellent customer care with regular updates re: delivery. Would highly recommend." - Carol P. 23/03/2018
Some commercial entrances, such as airports and schools, require a heavy duty mat designed to cope with high volumes of foot traffic. For this, we have the Premdry At just 7mm high, Premdry is our most durable thin door mat achieving the highest possible ratings in each of the categories we rate; Crush Resistance, Soil Resistance and Water Retention.
PremDry features a waffle-pattern design which scrapes dirt and stones from the bottom of feet whilst absorbing an impressive 5.4 litres of water per square metre. This makes PremDry a highly effective thin door mat for even the most demanding of entrances.
"Sturdy, good quality mat that stays where it's put...and I love the colour! Also, excellent customer service" - Lucy A. 05/01/2017
