How Big Should Your Doormat Be?

It’s not always easy to figure out what size doormat you need for your home. It is up to you to decide whether the mat should fill the entire door space or whether it should be a bit smaller, but we have conducted our own research on the matter.

Entrance mats should typically cover at least 80 percent of the width of the door they are placed in front of. Taking into consideration that the width of the typical front door will be approximately three feet, this indicates that the minimum width of your doormat should be thirty inches.

Let’s go over everything there is to know about doormat sizes, including what you might want to think about and what you might not want to think about while decorating your front entryway. We are here to be of assistance!

What Sizes Are Usually Available For Doormats?

The standard dimensions for a doormat are 18 by 30 inches. Naturally, these measurements are ideal for use with a single-door standard size, however, for larger-style entrances, a mat with dimensions of 22 inches by 36 inches would perform more effectively.

As was indicated, you want to make sure that the doormat you choose covers approximately 80 percent of the width of your door.

How Do You Determine The Size Of A Doormat?

The vast majority of the time, you want to select a doormat that will fit both your entrance and your door. Particularly important for anyone working with a double door design is the possession of a mat that is sufficiently large.

Even if your property has a front entrance that isn’t very large, picking a doormat that’s either almost as broad as the door itself or even wider will help your home appear more put together. Again, as long as the width of your mat is at least 80 percent of the width of the door, it should appear good, so there is no need to worry about it.

What Size Doormat For A Double Door?

When you consider that the typical width of a single door is three feet, the ideal width for a double door is approximately six feet. In order for your doormat to have an adequate appearance, it will need to have a width of at least 5 feet.

In light of the foregoing, a doormat with a width of five feet will look its best in front of double doors, and it will also provide sufficient space for two persons to wipe their feet.

Again, this does not mean that you cannot experiment with this approach if that is what you like; nevertheless, in terms of cost, selecting a mat that is 5 feet wide will be more cost-effective than purchasing many mats of a lesser size.

Bring It To A Close

Getting the right size doormat is important, whether you already possess several or have never purchased one. Try to obtain a doormat that can cover the entire entryway; it should be at least 80% as big as the door, if not larger.

It’s also important to choose a doormat that won’t become unusable in a matter of weeks or months; we recommend one made of synthetic materials and resistant to water and UV light.

You may also place an additional mat inside your front entrance to collect dirt and debris your exterior doormat missed.

In any event, choose a doormat large enough for your front door, and don’t be afraid to buy more for other entrances.
