I needed a mat for my upstairs terrace in my apartment. I like to step down on something and I had been buying many of these as new home gifts. Everyone just loves them, so I decided to treat myself. I live my oversize mat and the colors are vibrant and match my deck accessories. Everyone compliments it! The only concern I have is that it is too nice to step on. I am afraid I will get dirt on this gorgeous mat. Hopefully it will wash off. I love this prrchase and was especially glad to see the writing was bold enough to see.
