The New Doormat

I know I'm a saddo, but I really like my new doormat. It is generously sized and set neatly into the newly laid terracotta tiles in its own little slot. You can buy rubber backed coir matting like this by the metre in the hardware store here and just cut it to fit. I think it looks terribly smart, and is way better than a mat laid on the surface to slip and slide all over the floor as people walk in and out. This is our most used entry, and a lot of dirt and grit comes in this way. Not any more I hope!

Very smart !! It's funny how the little things are often the ones that give most satisfaction.

That surround is a very nice detail. It's great to see everything coming together in your kitchen.

That looks really good. You're very posh having it recessed into the tiles!

That really looks good - some very fancy tile cutting there! The littlest things are often the most work, too.

Oh, now I wish we had a couple of these. Retrofitting might be too much trouble though. Very nice, chez vous.

Looks good Susan and much safer. We are always tripping over our doormats, or else they stop the door from opening!
