Creating a Perfect Fit: Custom Shaped Door Mats for Irregular Mat Wells
Coir matting cut to size is a custom solution for fitting mats into irregularly shaped mat wells or areas. If you have a mat well that is not a standard shape, such as one with several cut out sections or angles, our craftsmen can create a custom shaped door mat made to your specific template from our coir matting cut to size. This can be made from either PVC backed coir matting or traditional hand stitched coir matting.
To create a template for your custom shaped door mat, you can follow these steps:
- Take the measurements of all sides of the mat well or area to ensure the template is to scale.
- Use thick paper, a paper tablecloth, or plastic sheeting to create the template. You can also use our PVC backed coir matting fitting guide to draw on the edge of your mat well in chalk and then lay the paper on top to get the basic shape printed on the paper.
- Double check that the template is the perfect fit for your mat well. This is especially important if you choose to have a traditional handstitched coir mat made to a template as it cannot be trimmed in situ for the perfect fit like PVC backed coir matting.
If you want to personalize your custom shaped door mat with wording or a motif, be sure to label which edge is the top on your template so that the printing is done the right way up. You can also send us a sketch of the mat well if all the angles involved are perfectly 90 degrees or if it is a perfect semi-circle. Just be sure to label all sides and edge dimensions on the sketch.
Coir matting cut to size is a great solution for fitting mats into irregularly shaped mat wells or areas. It can be made from either PVC backed coir matting or traditional hand stitched coir matting and can be personalized with printing for added customization.
