How to Choose Your Floor Mat Colors

custom floor mats

Until the idea of using custom-design commercial floor mats for advertising and branding purposes became a thing, picking the right floor mat colors wasn’t so complicated. These days, there are more challenging aspects to consider when picking your floor mats.

On top of the mats being effective in keeping your floors clean and working as a safeguard against trip-and-fall accidents, you want your floor mats designed to help send the right message to your clients.

Fret not – we are here to help. We have a simple list of guidelines to help you get the right shade for your custom floor mats!

How to Choose Your Floor Mat Colors

Mix and match with existing aesthetics. Choosing the right color for your floor mats should include a careful consideration of your business’ existing aesthetics. Picking a mat for your entryway? Pick a color that matches with your existing walls. The same concept must be applied for indoor mats – especially for logo mats and message mats that take center stage in your lobby. You do not want colors that clash with the existing color scheme of your floors and walls. If possible, go for a color that is in the same color family as your major accents.

Think bold and vibrant. You want your logo and message mats to draw attention to the message/image you’ve printed on them. Go for shades that make your messages stand out – here’s a basic color-text guide for starters. When you’re going for a logo mat, go for a background shade that brings out the boldest shades of your existing logo design – here’s a simple color combination guide for effective logos.

Pick colors that don’t stain easily. It goes without saying that a white floor mat is not a sound option. In fact, when choosing your floor mat colors, you should scrap the pastel palette altogether. These lighter shades, no matter how beautifully they register when designing, simply do not work well under foot traffic.

Quality trumps all. Finally, start with great-quality customized commercial floor mats. No amount of excellent design can match the virtue of high-quality mat prints – the kind that can look good for much longer under any amount of foot traffic and repeated washings. The best place to get these kinds of floor mats? A company that specializes in floor mat technology.
