Most door mats that people see are going to be rubber. The reason for this is that this is going to catch the dirt while also being something that is super easy to clean. The person will find that in the long run this is something that they are going to enjoy having. However, with that being said, the person will also find that since this is rubber that it is not going to be that good in getting the water and so forth of all people’s shoes before they enter into the home.

The other type of material that is common are those plush like door mats. These are still going to have a rubber backing since they are going to need this in order to be heavy enough that wind will not blow these away. However, the person will find that they are excellent for cleaning shoes before the person walks into the home. Though, they do have to be cleaned frequently because of this.

There are many other types of materials including those door mats that are made from woven strands that are not containing any rubber at all. These are good for catching water off of shoes and so forth, and they can be thrown into the washer when needed to be cleaned. It does have the drawback of fading over time though since it is forced to be in the elements. There are also door mats that are made from bamboo and so forth. In the end, it will come down to the person’s preference as to which they choose to use for their own door mat. Yet, being more educated about choices does make it a bit easier to choose.
