Ideal dimensions for most doorways. Stylish carpet design improves shoe and boot cleaning. Low profile, will not block doors.
Retains water, must be air-dried. Some durability issues in high-traffic areas. Unpleasant odor upon arrival.
Plush fibers help absorb water and other moisture. Works well in any indoor room, not just an entryway. Machine washable, with strong non-skid backing.
Overall dimensions on the smaller side for a doormat. Somewhat like a less durable plush bathmat.
Sturdy enough for high-traffic indoor areas. Thin profile, will not jam doors or robotic vacuums. Traps sand and dirt well.
Arrives folded or rolled, difficult to lie flat. Very thin, not absorbent. Backing can be slippery. Unpleasant "burnt rubber" odor.
Multiple uses, from a boot/shoe tray to a pet food bowl liner. Raised lip keeps moisture contained. Constructed with recycled plastic – environmentally friendly.
Only holds a limited number of shoes or boots. Can slide on certain types of flooring. Plastic material not as durable as rubber.
Constructed from genuine Astroturf. Can contain over a pound of dirt. Plastic bristles easily remove dirt from shoes, boots, and pet paws.
Plastic bristles create unpleasant crackling noise. Some dirt can remain trapped. Smaller in size than expected.

Being more than just the typical "welcome home" variety, doormats come in many different styles and colors for a personal home touch. The best doormats do a great job of keeping feet and floors clean as people enter the home. The surface of the mat will have the most influence over getting rid of mud and dirt. Mats with textured surfaces can cling to debris more effectively than smooth mats can. For winter use, find a mat that isn't completely rubber so the surface does not crack in colder temperatures. Mats made of teak or coconut fibers can repel most water and mud without damage in the cold.
