Floor Mat Buyer's Guide
Now, a high-quality set of floor mats won't solve all of your problems. They won't cut the grass for you, they can't pick up the kids from soccer practice, and they certainly can't stop your neighbor from stealing your newspaper. What they will do is keep your carpet protected from all of the dirt and grime that accumulates on your shoes (and those kid's shoes from soccer practice.)
We've broken this buying guide up into three sections - Carpeted, Rubber/Plastic, and Metal (Yes, metal floor mats). Carpeted floor mats are, of course, covered in carpet, and Rubber/Plastic floor mats are made of some sort of rubber or plastic material. Many of these offer great protection and are easy to clean. Metal floor mats are made of metal. They are some of the toughest on the market and offer rugged good looks that are hard to pass up.
We also have a handy floor mat Buying Guide Chart for reference. Check it out.
