A fun, printed design will last much longer if used for undercover areas such as a porch so they are kept away from the elements. When it comes to effectiveness, keep in mind that a thicker pile is not always a better option. Shorter pile mats tend to be firmer which makes them more effective at brushing off dirt. Coir mats are a high quality and durable choice as the coconut husk fibres are woven to ensure a tough textured surface.
