Halloween is coming! And with it, trick and treaters and visitors of all kinds. So, why not give your entrance a little love by getting a one-of-a-kind Halloween doormat? To be honest, when thinking about Halloween decorations, many people focus on stuff to put in their gardens and around their houses. But did ever think that the first thing a trick or treater or visit sees is actually your home’s doormat? So, without further ado, here are some unique, spooky, and beautiful examples to stand out this month.

What Makes a Halloween Doormat Good?

There are a few reasons why getting a doormat for Halloween is such a good idea. So, let’s go through them in a little more detail (and then go over some ideas for choosing a good doormat for your home). 

  • Cleanliness: Let’s start with an easy one. Doormats have a primary function: To take moisture, mud, pollutants, and dirt from shoes and keep your house clean. Make sure your new mat is not just decorative but also can help your floors in top shape.
  • Safety: Doormats prevent people from slipping and falling. This is particularly important during Halloween when you will be receiving many guests (especially kids trick and treating). So, ensure your new Halloween doormat’s bottom is non0skid rubber or a similar material. 
  • Aesthetics: A doormat can be a reflection of your personality and, during Halloween, a perfect opportunity for decorating your home with a spooky theme. 

Choosing the Best Doormat (And Types of Halloween Mats)

We will show you some ideas for Halloween doormats right below. As general advice, before you pick one, think about the dimensions (ideally, the biggest mat that your space and budget allow) and the thickness (thicker mats are not always better; sometimes, mats with shorter piles can remove dirt more easily). Lastly, consider where you want to place your doormat. Outdoor mats will be more exposed to elements, although this will be less the case if under a covered porch. Indoor mats can be finer. Lastly, some people use scraper doormats placed on top of absorber mats.
