Scary To The Ground: Horror Doormats That Stand For It

A Doormat is a useful item on any scale. It is designed to absorb the dirt that comes out of the shoes of people entering the house so that its floor will get much less dirty, and it can absorb water and moisture so that it does not enter the house. This is why, for example, we would like to choose a carpet made of high-quality materials, which was easy to clean and, on the other hand, also had dimensions that were not too large. But an entrance rug has an aesthetic role, and it is even more important. It can adorn the entrance of the house, or even tell those outside the door something about you or the atmosphere in the house. If you like horror movies or the world of horror as a whole, the right choice for you might be designed horror doormats, with characters and images from familiar movies, scary objects, and a host of surprises.

Here Are Some Well Designed Horror Doormats

Friends Doormat, Horror Edition

We all know the iconic series “Friends”, one of the favorites shows ever broadcasted. There is a wide range of products that take the company’s famous logo and replace the beloved characters – Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Ross, and Joey – with “friends” from horror movies. We saw this for example in our review of Horror Friends shirt, and we also see it in the case of patterned entrance rugs.

The following friends doormat, from AnyDesign, will create the perfect atmosphere for your home. It comes with a black background, which means you will less notice dirt accumulating on it. This doormat includes seven of the most prominent characters in horror movies: in the center, you will find Pennywise, the terrifying clown from “It”, holding the traditional red balloon. To his left are Freddy Krueger, Billy (the  puppet from the “Saw” movies), and Ghostface from the “Scream” movie series. On the right side is the Chucky doll holding the knife, Michael Myers from “Halloween” and Jason Voorhees from the “Friday the 13th” movie series. Underneath the characters, of course, the familiar “Friends” logo.

The rug size is 17×29 inches (about 43-74 cm), its shape is rectangular and it is thick enough not to get stuck under the door. The main material is felt (a non-woven fabric made of fibers pressed together). On the back, you will find anti-slip rubber that will also make cleaning the carpet a bit easier. You can use it not only at the entrance to the house but in different places inside the house/office and outside.

The Perfect Doormat Halloween Party

When we talk about a red carpet, most people think of the magnificent carpets that stand at prestigious award ceremonies, including the Oscars. Since horror films rarely get the respect they deserve in such events, a red carpet according to our version is – of course – one that includes images of blood on it. For example, one of the well-worn images in horror movies is of bloody feet.

Looking for scary halloween doormats? The next item is very suitable as a decoration for a horror party (such as a Halloween party) or just to do something interesting at the house’s entrance. It’s a runner – that is, a long and narrow rug – designed as red feet and bloodstains on a white background, with the prints appearing on both sides of the runner. This carpet is not usually suitable to be in the house entrance, since its dimensions are about 3.3-7 meters, but you can find many other uses for it including doormat halloween party as we mentioned. The product comes with double adhesive tape.
