Welcome doormats are good for more than a quippy welcome. They’re great for wiping off dirty, muddy, wet boots and keeping your entryway (relatively) clean. The best doormats are made out of durable, easy-to-clean materials that hold up through the seasons. A cute design doesn’t hurt, either. Below, some of our favorites.

Gorilla Grip Original Durable Rubber Door Mat

This sturdy all-natural rubber mat is designed to hold up indoors and outdoors. It’s constructed with a beveled border that functions as a little mess dam. The woven, polypropylene fabric creates a nice pattern, traps dirt, and dries quickly. Each rug measures 35 x 23 inches and comes in a range of classic patterns, including green leaf prints, a simple welcome, or geometric designs. They’re easy to clean, too, and come with a 10-year warranty.

Durable Durite Recycled Tire-Link Outdoor Entrance Mat

For the ultimate, rugged, durable doormat, grab this one made out of recycled tires—especially if you want a mat that holds up through snowstorms and rainstorms, and can last for years. It’s 24 x 36 inches and thick enough to feel substantial and comfortable while you wipe off dirty snow boots. The open weave design looks cool, and helps transfer the debris from your shoe onto the mat.

SlipToGrip Universal Jumbo Door Mat
An XL size and waterproof surface.Amazon

Grab this oversized doormat with water and a weatherproof PVC surface to prevent messes from tracking inside, especially if things get rough in snowy winters. It’s got an understated plaid design in black, brown, or gray. It’s easy to wash (just spray water) and reset, and is BPA free. A rubbery non-slip layer keeps it in place.
