Regardless if you have just recently purchased a new car or are looking
to spruce up your old vehicle, adding floor mats can make all the
difference. Whether you are purchasing floor mats from a car dealership
or a automotive shop, the options are usually large and may be confusing.
Generally, there are two main categories of floor mats: rubber floor mats
and carper floor mats. When making a decision between the two materials,
the choice is generally one of desired look and specific needs.

Rubber floor mats are the better choice for vehicles that do a great deal
of hauling materials or people. Look to include rubber floor mats in
truck beds or in the rear of vehicles and in trunks. In addition to being
much easier to clean than their carpet cousins, rubber floor mats may
offer a bit of skid protection, so that items you are hauling are not
catapulted from one end of your vehicle to another. Also, if you live in
an area of the country that experiences particular messy weather or have
a great deal of mud around your home or place of business, you may want
to consider rubber floor mats specifically for the clean up potential.

Carpet floors mats are generally designated for cars, although there is
no one reason why carpet must be included in cars and vice versa.
Generally, carpet floor mats are though to look better, and are often
purchased directly from the dealership in a color that matches the
interior carpeting of the vehicle. If you purchase carpet floor mats from
an automotive store or an outside source other than a dealership, you may
have potential problems in matching the color of the floor mat to the
color of your interior. In this instance, consider using a coordinating
color that will hide stains and clean up easily while looking nice with
the interior of your car.

Although carpet floor mats are usually purchased for vehicles designed
for transportation instead of hauling purposes, many individuals find
them inappropriate. Especially if you have small children or pets, carpet
floor mats can become easily dirty and stained with muddy feet or spills.
For this reason, consider mats that are topped with a stain protective
coating so that spills and liquids puddle on the surface instead of
soaking through the mat. Although floor mats are generally the line of
protection for the carpet underneath, very few individuals ever let this
carpet show and they often look for clear protective vinyl or rubber mats
to protect their floor mats. Keep in mind that any floor mat should be
secured to the floor to prevent slipping upon entering or exiting the
vehicle, especially if the mat is located under the driver’s seat.

Consider using rubber floor mats for their customization options, since
many individuals want to create a look especially for their car. These
customizations can be anything from a name or nickname emblazoned on the
floor mat to a cartoon character or a favorite sports athlete’s number.
With the booming customization business involving vehicles of all makes,
shapes, and sizes, it is not surprising the customized floor mats have
also become a trendy extra for vehicles.

In the end, the choice of rubber or carpet floor mats is completely up to
you. Consider first your purposes of the vehicle and then your budget to
determine which type of mat will best meet your needs. If budget is a
main concern in your choice, turn to the World Wide Web, where you can
often find great prices on popular styles and brands of floor mats.
