Whether you’re looking for a welcome mat for your business or need to make your patio into a more comfortable space, large outdoor mats can transform an outdoor space. As you explore the different mats for sale, it’s important to find a mat that offers the features and the quality you need.

Considerations When Choosing Large Outdoor Mats

As you shop for outdoor mats, consider the following features and which matter most to you.

Mat Durability


Outdoor mats need to withstand temperature extremes, weather, and sunlight. The materials that a mat is made of contribute to its durability.

It’s also important to choose a mat with UV resistance, which can help to protect its colors and prevent the material from degrading.



Drainage Properties


When you’re shopping for a mat for outdoor use, you’ll need a product that is not only waterproof, but that also helps to drain water away. Consider whether the mat has perforations that water can flow through, and make sure that it’s designed to prevent standing water from pooling.

Traction


Be sure to also look for a mat that’s designed to maximize traction. For the most safety, look for a mat that offers non slip traction not only when it’s dry, but also when it’s wet.

Installation Method


Consider the type of installation that’s ideal for your situation. For entry mats, a dry lay situation is best, but the mat’s weight and size will contribute to how well it stays in place.

The installation method can vary with other mat types. Think about whether you will be able to install the mat yourself or whether you will need to hire a professional to help, which can increase the overall cost of your project.
