It should come as no surprise to discover that doorways and entryways come in all shapes and sizes. For this reason, there’s virtually no such thing as a “one size fits all” doormat. Fortunately, it is completely possible for essentially all coir mats to be cut down to size. Coir mats possess a great number of inherent qualities that make them superior to other types of doormats, and this modifiable feature makes a coir doormat the perfect option for nearly any locale or doorway!
How do you know when you need to cut a coir mat down to size? Simple! Determine what size your doorway’s width is, and then compare that to the size of whatever coir doormat you want to use. For example, say you have a doorway that’s 36 inches wide, but your coir mat is 48 inches long. Clearly, this coir mat is too big. Good thing fitting these doormats is a breeze!
The process for fitting a coir mat into any doorway is simple and intuitive; almost anyone can do it! First, measure both your doorway and your doormat. Then, determine how much you need to remove (in our example above, we need to cut off about 12 inches). Lay your selected door mat down on a flat, solid surface, measure to your desired length, and –while wearing proper safety equipment- make a series of long and steady cuts. That’s all! By following these steps you’ll have no problem dealing swiftly and efficiently with any “oversized” coir mats you want to use.
Coir mats are among the best in the business, and their easy ability to be cut down to size is just one of their many advantages. The ability to modify and cut your coir mats down to size is just one of the many reasons for choosing coir doormats for all your door and entryway needs!
A coir doormat is a great product to have at your front door because they are weather resistant and are available in a variety of aesthetic styles.
