Yes it is okay to be a doormat from time to time, especially at this time of year with weather that keeps trying to track itself into our homes. Whether you are dealing with snow, rain, or mud, we all want something at the door to keep it out of the rest of our house. I got to thinking about this problem this week as Michigan went from snow to rain and then back again creating all sorts of messes that did not need to be in my house!
My solution of course was a rug (did you think I would actually suggest something else?? LOL) and not just any rug, but one that usually gets suggested for warmer weather and sunnier days. An indoor / outdoor rug, while perfect on the patio during the summer can serve double duty in the winter as an easy to clean and rugged doormat.
Rugs to My Door offers many options that will work perfect in keeping the elements where they belong right now (and into the spring) I am listing a few of my favorites below to give you some ideas, if you come up with others please don’t hesitate to let me know. I am always available at firstname.lastname@example.org and LOVE to see how you have used our rugs in your own home.
The Lanai Collection from Oriental Weavers is a very simple and straight forward faux sisal look that is easy to clean and rugged enough to stand up to whatever you can throw at it. It also comes with Oriental Weaver’s 10 year No Stain, No Soil Warranty – so this is a great choice for an entrance rug that will take the abuse.
Want something with a bit more flair and color, look no further than the Veranda collection from Kas rugs. These are hand hooked rugs that are made from a poly-acrylic blend that make them perfect for both indoor AND outdoor use. I personally think these make a stylish and practical addition to your entries.
Last but most certainly not least is the Ravella collection from TransOcean. This collection gives you some classic border rugs long with some rugs that have stripes and a more tropical feel. The colors are great and I think you will find that they fit easily into your decorating scheme.
There are three examples of the indoor / outdoor area rugs that we carry, but as always there are hundreds more where these came from, so make sure you check out all the rugs in this category for the perfect dirt and snow and rain and mud and and and catcher for your entry ways this season.
