Vinyl-Backed Coco Mat

• from $31.99

Simple luxury. I wanted to have a really nice, sharp coir mat for my front door in my new place. You know, the kind that hugs the walls and fits in the floor. I didn't know anything about these things, and had only seen regular old doormats (that shed terribly) at hardware stores.

With a little bit of research I found a great resource and discovered that what I wanted was a Vinyl-Backed Coco Mat ("clean, plush look and are ideal for hotel, restaurant and office lobbies") which can be cut to any size. This is the type of thing that you can measure and order online really easily. If you measure properly, it will fit perfectly. However, make sure that you also measure the clearance under your door as well, because if you don't have that special recessed area, you'll need some space so that your door can open and close without binding. I purchased one 3/4" thick 27"x55.5" piece for my door. It came in a week and cost $113.40.
