In the past, outdoor decoration had little importance. People found a functional garden room, a parasol, a straw mat and a barbecue to be amply sufficient. This is no longer the case: terraces, gardens and balconies have become real extensions of the house. Good decoration is essential and most people pay special attention to it. So outdoor furniture and its accessories are increasingly looked for to decorate the exterior of the house: outdoor mats, recliners, cushions, low and high tables, deckchairs, garden chairs are the stand out items of outdoor furniture. The outdoor mat is ideal for covering a terrace or a balcony. Available in numerous models and several materials, it's the perfect thing for brightening an exterior space and sharing some of its personality. We'll look at the specifics of the LAFUMA MOBILIER mats and the different outdoor mat models on offer.
You should consider several criteria for a good choice of mat. It will be the masterpiece of your garden furniture. It should be aesthetic, made with suitable and durable materials, non-slip and easy to wash. You can also opt for a terrace mat which does not absorb water unduly, even with heavy rain. At LAFUMA MOBILIER, we offer mats with excellent permeability and singular design, which adhere well to the floor and are easy to clean.
The choice of material for an outdoor mat is crucial if you want it to be durable. Indeed, it's impossible to put a woven mat, shaggy rug, wool mat or simple carpet tiles outside. These materials are not designed to withstand outdoor aggression (rain, sun, wind, etc.). So, it's important to opt for a weather-resistant designer mat. At LAFUMA MOBILIER, we have opted for polypropylene, instead of traditional bamboo or seagrass. It's a strong synthetic fibre, resistant to moisture and UV radiation. Polypropylene mats are washable, easy to maintain and just as stylish as those intended for indoors. Polypropylene also has many qualities: this material is tearproof, odourless, flexible, smooth and recyclable. Stains do not penetrate this type of mat: rubbing simply with a wet sponge is generally enough to deal with it. In the event of a large spill, it is always possible to remove the mess with a little bleach diluted in water.
You've got it: all our mats are integrally made up of polypropylene, a heavy-duty material, resistant to all weather conditions. Stylish, they can be installed outdoors, and also combined with interior decoration. The design of our products and their smart finishes make the mats very on trend, with no reason to envy indoor mats. Moreover, they are manufactured in Belgium and guaranteed for 2 years. Easy to wash, they can spend all summer outdoors. At the season end, we recommend you store them to extend the product's lifetime. Rolled up, they are easy to store in a shed or cupboard to await warmer weather. Which mat to choose? What are the specifics of LAFUMA MOBILIER outdoor mats?
