Although door mats are normally used as part of the entrance to a house, they can also be used in a similar way for man caves. While they are ideal for man caves that are located outside, you can still use them for man caves that are based within your house. They can provide a welcoming marker or warning for anyone attempting to enter your hallowed ground. It doesn’t matter how specific or generic your man cave theme is, as the best man cave doormats come in all styles and designs.
There are literally hundreds out there, but rather than bore you by going through all of them, we have picked out the ones we think are the coolest and most appealing.
The first of the best man cave door mats we have picked out for our guide is this simple, but smart and effective option from a company called La Finesse. Made from decorative coir and a PVC rubber backing, it features the printed message “Welcome to the Man Cave”. It’s a great way to set the mood and atmosphere for anyone who comes to visit you in your den.
Measuring 70 x 40 x 1.5cm, this is a very durable and easy to clean mat that would work well inside or out and would be best for a more generic man cave.
Next, we have another of the best man cave door mats, this time featuring a surface made from polyester and a non-slip black rubber base. Although it again serves as a welcome to your man cave, it offers the extra note that it is a “Private Entrance”. This is a great idea if you really value your privacy and want the entrance to your man cave to have a sense of exclusivity.
This is also very easy to maintain as it can be wiped clean or washing in the machine. We especially love its darker colour and more prestigious font choice.
If you are looking for a more humorous and laidback man cave doormat, look no further than this Man Cave Rules offering from 123t. It’s available in two different sizes and features a very soft underfoot non-woven polyester surface and a border and backing made from non-slip rubber.
As a standard design, this man cave mat features classic man cave rules like “My Cave My Rules” and “No Sitting In My Chair” and funny ones like “If It Itches, Scratch It” and “Burp and Fart At Will”.
We’re not too sure how your significant other will feel about Rule 4, but that’s entirely up to you. (It reads “Woman By Invitation Only (Bringing Food Is Strongly Suggested). The great thing is that the company will actually personalise their products, so if there is something in addition to what’s already featured on it, alongside the rules and the little caveman image, contact them to see if they can accommodate.
Sometimes, though, a whole list of rules is unnecessary, especially if you are a man of simple pleasures, and you just need the most important made clear. That’s why we picked out this natural coconut fibre (coir) doormat, as it simply reads “If you bring beer you are welcome here!” Like the others in our guide, it is made with a non-slip PVC rubber backing and is moisture resistant and very easy to keep clean.
We’re pretty sure that if your mates or significant other tries to gain entrance without beer because they didn’t know, they will only do it once after reading the doormat.
Often, the best man cave door mats are the ones that best match the personality of their owner. If you have a good sense of humour, you may appreciate this next one. It’s another polyester with a rubber backing doormat from Artylicious and features the rather ominous, but funny message “Warning Man Cave Enter At Your Own Risk”.
It says it all really, doesn’t it? Guests are welcome inside your hallowed man cave but have been given fair warning that you cannot be responsible for what happens to them. Even if the only thing that happens to them is that they might smell your farts or get a nice cold one directly from the fridge or your beer pump, a warning is a warning.
What self-respecting list of the best man cave door mats would be complete without at least a couple of Star Wars-themed options? The first is this great decorative coir doormat with an incredibly durable vinyl rubber backing.
It features the Jedi Master Yoda and his characteristic take on grammar with the message “Welcome You Are” We especially love this for the detail in Yoda’s facial features. If you have a Star Wars-themed man cave or are working on it, and Yoda is one of your favourite characters, then this is definitely a worthy investment to really complete your theme and make it clear from the moment anyone enters your cave.
If we’re going to include Star Wars themed man cave door mats, it would be silly not to feature the original man cave owner (or at least the owner of the best version of a man cave), Batman, in doormat form. To keep things nice and simple and a play on the traditional doormat, this features the words “Welcome to the Batcave” and features the Batman logo.
It, like many of the others, is made from decorative coir with an underside backing of non-slip rubber. Easy to clean and long-lasting, this is a high-quality investment.
Although you may not have all the toys, gadgets and gizmos Batman does, at least you will have the doormat!
It’s only fair if we are going to be impartial to have options for the Sith as well as the Jedi among the best man cave door mats for Star Wars fans. Featuring Darth Vader this time, this cool entrance mat has the message “Welcome to the Dark Side”.
It can serve as a less-than-gentle reminder to anyone that is a Rebel Alliance member, Luke Skywalker, or a Jedi Knight to proceed with extreme caution if they dare to enter your domain. Likewise, even if they are part of the Empire but have failed you in some way (By not bringing any snacks or drinks), they might want to decide if it’s worth the risk entering your cave.
Again, in the interest of impartiality, just as we picked outdoor mats with both Yoda and Darth Vader, in addition to the Batman doormat already listed further up this page, we felt it was necessary to highlight this one too. Also, it’s really cool and the detail in The Joker print is unbelievable.
With the message “Welcome to Arkham Asylum”, you are giving all your guests and visitors fair warning that they are entering into the domain of a mad man. On their own head be it, if they want to drink from the cup of the Clown Prince of Crime.
Best Man Cave Door Mats – Buyer’s Guide
In addition to the great products we have highlighted as the best man cave door mats, we thought it might be helpful to include a brief, but practical buyer’s guide. In it, we break down the most important features and aspects you need to consider when choosing a door mat for your man cave.
As most doorways have standard sizes, most entrance door mats also have standard sizes. However, you will find some doormats that are oversized or designed for non-standard doors that are a bit bigger than normal. Just make sure the one you buy is going to fit in the space you have reserved for it.
Again, this should not be something you need to worry about, especially if you choose one of the doormats highlighted above, as most are manufactured with a non-slip backing. The last thing you want is any of your guests slipping and hurting themselves (or dropping a nice 12 pack of beer or bottle of gin) on the way into your man cave because the door mat didn’t stay put.
A rather obvious point to make, but if you have a specific theme to your man cave, it would be a really nice touch if the theme was continued on your door mate too.
Likely, you didn’t think about getting a doormat for your man cave. If your man cave is just another room in your house, it makes sense that it would be the last thing you would think of. However, as you can see from our guide to the best man cave door mats, there is something for everyone and it’s a great way to set the mood of your cave or welcome/warn guests when they make their entrance.
