Whether you work in hospitality, public services or your typical 9-5 office, first impressions can count for a lot. In order to leave a lasting positive impression, many businesses will implement certain features in order to give you the best possible experience from the moment you step through the door, and entrance matting can do just that.

What is entrance matting?

You may not realise it, but entrance matting can be found all over the place in both residential and commercial buildings. Easy to fit and effective, entrance mats are pieces of heavy-duty material that are usually found either inside the interior of a building or outside to help scrape off dirt and absorb moisture from those entering the building.

Five benefits of having an entrance mat at the workplace

Commercial entrance mats are a fantastic way to transform a space and can actually provide a host of benefits to your business at the same time. Take a look at just some of the advantages a good entrance mat can add to your commercial building.

1. Safer than your average flooring

It is no secret that UK weather is unpredictable and can often lead to some pretty torrential roads and pathways. Implementing an entrance mat can help you create a buffer between the outside and the inside, helping to keep your customers safe whilst on your premises. Entrance mats are specifically designed to effectively absorb moisture and are textured in a way that will help clear the feet of those who pass over it, so can be an effective tool for busy walkways.

2. Fantastic branding tool

Whether your company is big or small, using an entrance mat as a means of branding can be effective and really make a strong impression on visitors. Entry mats are the first and last thing people are going to see when visiting your building, so make the most of that opportunity and take the added benefit of promoting your business to everyone who walks by.

3. Transform your space

For the most part entryways, waiting rooms and lobbies can be pretty dull to look at. Adding an attractive entry mat can really break up a big space and add something a little extra to the interior or exterior of your building; if you are looking for simple but effective changes, an entrance mat could be the very thing you need!

4. Maintains the presentation of your interior

When you are running a business, it can often seem like the day has passed in the blink of an eye. That means that you can soon be faced with a build-up of dirt and wet that has been walked in from outside. Without someone on hand to keep on top of the daily cleanliness of your building it can soon get out of hand, and that’s where an entrance mat comes in! Effective in controlling the amount that gets walked inside, entrance mats can be a long-lasting and low-maintenance way of dealing with the upkeep of your building’s interior.

5. Professionalism

Last but by no means least, a good quality entry mat can add a feeling of professionalism, warmth and welcoming to those who visit. Regardless of the nature of your commercial property, the opportunity to add a feeling of comfort can be invaluable.
