We've put together a guide for you to find out about Tica Copenhagen's doormats, shoe trees and floor mats in a variety of sizes and applications.
SHOE TREES & DOORMATS
Shoe trays are a smart and practical way to store and organise wet and dirty footwear all year round. No matter how wet or dirty your footwear is, there's almost always a little dirt or water underneath, which can stain and smudge the floor when left directly on it - besides looking unsightly. The shoe trays invite people to put their shoes in the trays and collect dirt, grass, sand and water there instead of on the floor
5 DIFFERENT DESIGNS TO CHOOSE FROM
- Footwear; is the first design we launched in 2012 and is markings of shoes and boots. The design illustrates what the shoe bins are for and is a slightly humorous and cosy.
- Graphic; are graphic squares and triangles interacting graphically to give a more streamlined look and the edges are completely square.
- Dot; has become a true classic. Neutral pattern with dots and the shoeboxes have round edges. Fits in just about anywhere.
- Leaves; a pattern with different leaves, inspired by nature and the seasons. Leaves is a cosy pattern for footwear.
- Lines; is the latest pattern created in a play with lines. The design is not symmetrical and is not exactly the same in on the different sizes of shoe bags and rugs - but has the same look. A very modern and simple pattern that has an exclusive look.
Great versatility throughout the home
Tica Trays/Shoe Trays are primarily for footwear, as the name describes, but actually have a number of other great uses;
Underlay when planting flowers about or working with anything that stings ex anything that contains oil e.g. cycling.
Underlay for plants on the balcony/home
Underlay for food/water bowls for pets that often swing on the floor around
Tica's floor mats are nice to look at - have a nice and simple look due to the polyamide material combined with the pile height. These are classic designs and colours. Available in a sand/beige colour, which matches perfectly with wooden floors. The pile height and soft polyamide also make the rugs comfortable to walk, stand and sit on.
PRACTICAL - THEY JUST WORK
Mats and rugs are practical because they are made of a durable quality and are easy to maintain. They save your floor from stains caused by water, dirt, sand, mud, etc. that you drag in from outside. They lie very well and stably on the floor without sliding and wrinkling. They are soft to walk and stand on. Easy to clean. Can be cut to size if not 100%.
When our sizes do not fit 100% to your needs, it is possible to cut and/or trim the rugs. The vinyl is soft to cut. Mark on the back and cut with sharp scissors/hobby knife. The edge will not be 100% like a machine cut edge, but the polyamide material will not fray or fray, so we find this works well for many customers.
The luff height is 7mm, which means it is typically not too high in relation to the door threshold. At the same time we have chosen this height of the pile, partly because it absorbs water/dirt in the good way and not least it gets a "carpet look" and is really nice to walk, stand and sit on.
GREAT USABILITY THROUGHOUT THE HOME
Tica floor mats can be used to great advantage in many rooms of your home because they are practical, soft and neat.
HALLWAY, ENTRANCE AND UTILITY ROOM
The hallway is the first room we come home and into. Your hallway is also the room your guests enter first. That's why it's so important that the entrance hall is well designed, so that both you and your guests feel welcome and, above all, that the room functions in a practical way for everyday use.
It's inevitable that we'll drag in water, dirt, sand, mud, snow, grass - you name it, depending on the season. Mats protect your floor from stains - inviting you to wipe your feet when you step inside.
KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM - EXITS TO TERRACE, BALCONY, GARDEN
Today, many houses have multiple exits from the bedrooms, kitchen and living room. Especially in spring and summer we have open doors and go in and out with our feet on. Here it can be practical to place a small mat (40x60 cm) to protect the floor and not least to limit getting water and dirt in - to limit cleaning.
In holiday homes and allotments there is often no dedicated hallway and here a larger mat/runner is typically needed to keep cleaning and dirt to a minimum throughout the house.
In the kitchen it can be nice to stand on a runner at the kitchen table when cooking and a runner also helps to protect the floor.
Many people find it nice to get out of bed and have their bare toes hit a soft and comfortable rug and therefore lie on a runner.
Carpets are soft to sit on and play on, which makes them ideal for children's rooms - especially as they are stable and hard-wearing.
The mats can be used as a bath mat, but also as a runner/carpet in front of the mirror/washing machine, because it is nice and comfortable to stand on something soft
REVIEW OF SIZES
Is the smallest size and seems very small at first glance. We think so too, but actually it is the 2nd best selling size. Because it's perfect outside the door if you live in an apartment block and don't need such a big mat outside the door. Here a rubber mat can also be good.
If you have an exit door from the kitchen or living room or room to the terrace/terrace/garden and don't really want or need a very large mat, then 40x60 cm is perfect. It takes just the worst of the dirt as you rush in and out and doesn't take up/look too much.
This size is the best seller and the obvious hallway mat. Door widths are typically 90 cm, so it's the classic mat size for your hallway.
Here's the perfect little runner or mat for a 1.5 or double door. For example from living room/kitchen to terrace.
Maybe you have a not so wide entrance door where it fits perfectly or a small hallway where it's nice to have something on the floor for practical reasons, but also because it looks nice. It's a super nice size for the bathroom and by your bed in the bedroom.
Here we have a classic runner size for a hallway or kitchen where it's nice to stand on something that can also pick up any grease and food scraps. It's also great for the bedroom.
With a width of 67 cm and 2 m in length, this is a classic runner for hallways, corridors in your home, but is also great in the kitchen and bedroom.
This size is relatively now and has become extremely popular in a short time. With door widths of typically 90cm, it fits frame-to-frame in a lot of homes. At 130cm in length, it's great in your hallway/bridges and when you like to have a large mat to walk on into the room.
We even see many customers placing 2 of these in line with each other, because it just works really well if you have the space.
The size also works really well in rooms where it's a bit more of a rug than a runner.
Smart and practical
Shoe bins are a smart and practical way to store and organise wet and dirty footwear all year round. No matter how wet or dirty your footwear is, there's almost always a little dirt or water underneath, which can stain and smudge the floor when left directly on it - besides looking unattractive. The shoe trays invite people to place their footwear in the trays and collect dirt, grass, sand and water there instead of on the floor.
Lies well and stable on the floor, does not slide regardless of the floor
Rubber is a relatively heavy material, which means that the shoe trays lie well and stable on the floor no matter what the floor is, so they don't slide around on the floor. The shoe trays are also resistant to underfloor heating.
Wide range of designs and sizes
There are 3 different sizes of shoe trays to choose from. All are 38 cm in length, which is adapted to fit a size 46 shoe on the shoe tray. The edges are about 2-3 cm high depending on the design.
28x38x3 cm / Small
This is made for a single pair of adult shoes.
It can fit 2 children's shoes across. This size is not just for the home, but is perfect to keep in the car for dirty walking/running shoes, so the car doesn't get messed up with wet/dirty shoes and boots.
48x38x3 cm / Medium
This size is made for 2 pairs of adult shoes or several children's shoes. Typically this size is also used for pet water and food bowls.
88x38x3 cm / Large
This size fits 4 pairs of adult shoes or several more children's shoes. It is the best selling and obvious family shoe box.
