Need help with Entryway rug or mat.
January 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Our new house needs a rug/mat for main entryway and patio entry. Modern style house with dark wood floors and lighter gray walls. We live in MN so the rug needs to be durable to conditions. Any suggestion on manufacturer, style or materials would be great. Tks

Please check out Flor. Many styles of carpet squares (I know, but this is serious) that have a modern sensibility and are removable and washable. I've been to the houzz offices and their entry mat is Flor. Best of luck!

Take a look at Ballard's for washable indoor/outdoor rugs. This chevron pattern is current and attractive.

Honestly, the best I have found for durability are LLBean Waterhog mats. In the winter we use our front door which opens onto hardwood. I had a sisal rug there and it trashed the floors so I replaced it with a water hog, and it's great. We've had snow or rain almost every other day this winter. We track in a lot of sand and mud (small kids) and this rug keeps looking good. I recommend the waffle weave design. Certainly no fashionista, but an impressive work horse. After the water hog, we have a decorative runner since the mat takes the abuse first. A rug with any white wouldn't last a week in my house in February.
