Sunken coir floor mats, popular in European homes, are a handsome and practical way to deal with entrance ways in mudrooms or out to the deck. Order the natural fibre coir online and cut it to size easily.
The mat can be used by setting it on top of your flooring, but it can also be recessed. Recessing the mat was great solution for updating damaged tiles by my deck slider. First I removed more than just the damaged tile to create a full width channel which looked better with the slider. I then cut the mat to size and placed it into the recess.
Coir is a sustainable natural fibre extracted from the husk of coconut. It’s environmentally friendly, another great selling point as research shows that buyers are on the look out for green features in houses. You can lift out the mat and shake it for deeper cleaning than vacuuming in high traffic areas.
