Doormats are usually the first things that guests step on when they arrive and usually the last when they leave. Thus modern doormats design ideas explore the scope for innovation and quirk in otherwise humble doormats. These ideas are great to spend time in useful business as well as create something useful in it.
This beautiful doormat is created by braiding a single long fabrics rope. However, this modern doormat design idea is only for those who have practice of, at the least, simple braid. While the resultant pattern is lovable, the process demands finesse over creating knots and flipping them repeatedly. People can practice with small thin rope to get acquainted with knotting and then start working on the real piece. The practice mat can also be used elsewhere in the house.
This doormat is as unusual as a doormat can be. It is made of pieces of ceramics. Broken tiles can be obtained at really low cost. People need to have a tile baker board in order to realise this modern doormat design idea. Many people already know how tile baker board and broken pieces of tiles can be used to create things. In layman’s words, ceramic doormat can be created by sticking several small, medium-sized or large pieces of tiles together. It needs to have a base that will cement all the pieces together. To remove monotony, differently colored tile pieces can be used to create textures or greetings. Design has to be made on the base before tiles are stuck on it so that the space for differently colored tile pieces is not mistakenly overlapped.
The creativity in this doormat is not involved with the technique, which is simple, but the message. This modern doormat features a “Hi” and a “Bye” axially opposite to each other respectively for arriving and departing guests. Any used doormat or a plain new mat can be used to create this. “Hi” and “Bye” have to be cut on a large paper, which has to be firmly placed on the desired side of doormat and spray painted on. Once dried, the doormat is ready to be used.
Wooden slat doormat
This doormat is made of cuboidal wooden slats fixed together by threaded rods. Each slat has to be of the same dimension so that threaded rods can conveniently hold them in place. The pattern is a matter of people’s own creativity and imagination. The simplest doormat design idea for this type of doormat is to place a number of slats at a distance smaller than their lengths. The gaps will be blocked by the next row, which has to contain either one more or one less slats than the previous row. In this way, slats have to be alternately placed so that their ends coincide with each other to be sewn by the rods.
