While I love the design of this mat with its classic knot design, I do recommend it as an exterior mat only. Since there is no rubber backing, it can be slippery on some floor surfaces. Coir just isn’t cozy to stroll on without sneakers, and it does tend to shed fibers. Installing a small, temporary wall may help to delineate house with out requiring permits and major planning. Once the curtain is drawn in entrance of the washer/dryer, this basement laundry room primarily disappears, letting the moist bar take heart stage. Painting the uncovered beams of your basement ceiling could make the entire space feel more finished without heavy renovation.
