Your Winter Solution! WaterGuard Boot Trays and Mats

It might be a wintry mess outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to track the snow and mud all over your house! The WaterGuard Boot Trays and Mats are your winter solution for the interior and exterior of your home. Made in the USA, these mats are mold-, mildew-, and rot-resistant and have a slip-resistant rubber backing. All WaterGuard mats except the stair treads have a Waterdam border that helps to keep dirt and water on the mats and off your floors.

Available in rectangle, slice, and scalloped shapes, the WaterGuard doormat is perfect for your front porch or interior entryway. Monogrammed and personalized WaterGuard doormats are available.

The WaterGuard boot trays are three feet wide, making them ideal for those wet boots, ice scrapers, brooms, and snow shovels. Place these boot tray mats in entryway, mudroom, and garage areas, and keep the winter muck out of the rest of your home.

Entryway Decorating Idea
For the first entryway, we chose coordinating furnishings with clean, simple lines. Neutral colors like ivory provide a sense of lightness, while allowing for decorating versatility. We paired the Balinda Wall Storage Unit with the Dylissa Bench for a cohesive look and slightly staggered the furnishings.

Bring comfort to this often-used space with an anti-fatigue mat, and don’t forget to place some storage bins nearby for shoes and accessories. At 60” long, the Heavenly Stripe Runner Mat provides substantial, skid-resistant coverage on your floor. The Finn Storage Basket Set will be a welcome addition with storage space for a variety of articles.

Add instant cozy appeal to the entryway with two or three charming wall decor pieces. The Family Word Wall Art will remind you of what’s truly important. The Callister Wall Clock has a vintage quality coupled with a modern aesthetic for pleasing transitional decor. When you’re in a hurry, the Family Rules Wall Plaque will remind you to keep your cool and treat others with kindness.

For the second entryway, we used darker pieces and woodgrain decor to create a rich, homey feel. The Jenson Double Wall Letter Holder serves double duty in entryway areas, collecting both your mail and jackets or scarves. The Family Word Wall Art is easily visible against a light wall, celebrating your family ties in elegant fashion. Jot grocery notes or meeting reminders on the Wine Barrel Chalkboard, a piece that indicates your appreciation for fine wine.

Step Forward! Doormats and Outdoor Mats for Your Entryway

Your outdoor entryway is one area of the home that’s sure to get plenty of traffic, yet it’s easy to neglect it. If your existing outdoor mat is looking a little frazzled, or if you have no doormat at all, it might be time to step up your decorating efforts. Beautify the entrance to your home with the help of outdoor mats and stair treads.

Coconut fiber mats give your outdoor entryway a touch of nature, all while providing a textured surface to scrape mud, slush, and dirt from your shoes. If you’re trying to cut down on the dirt tracked into your home, a fibrous coir mat is a great place to start!

If you have steps leading to your entrance, don’t forget outdoor stair treads to increase traction and aesthetic appeal. Select stair treads that complement the design of your outdoor mat for an attractive entryway area.
