Estate Monogrammed Door Mat

Door Mat – A doormat offers guests a welcome invitation at home, as well as providing a surface to clean their feet to avoid tracking a clutter in the home. Whether you make your doormat inside or outside your home, an inadequately sized doormat can make your decorating style look sloppy or simply provide a hazard. An oversized doormat may have to sit on its side and not display correctly text or hang over the steps often causing you or your guests to trip and fall. Cutting your mat with the size will improve the appearance of your front or hall pass and also eliminate the risk of injury.

Measure the width of the door opening to determine the optimum length for your doormat. Measure the width of the doormat to ensure the mat fits in your doorstep or at the placement site. Use the measurements from the previous steps, tape measure, carpenter’s square and the chalk line to draw cut lines on the doormat. For the mats that contain text or designs, you must center the cut lines to save the designs.

Fold the doormat in half the width and lengthwise, making small chalk marks to indicate the center of each side of the doormat. Score the cutting lines by dragging the knife through the lines. Apply a thin line of silicone sealant to the cutting edges of the doormat. This helps prevent the doormat from fraying and the lint from unraveling or falling loose.
