Here at Turtle Mat we quite understandably spend an inordinate amount of time with shoes, doorways, and mud on our minds. Having been providing mats for the entrances of homes up and down the UK for twenty years now, we decided to do some research into your habits and attitudes; do you keep your shoes on or take them off before you enter your home? We were also curious to find out about how guests are received into our homes – do we ask them to remove their shoes too or are we too polite to inconvenience them? In our quest to find the most house proud cities in the UK, we also uncovered some unexpected findings. We learnt that just a few miles’ distance can lead to a completely different attitude. We also learnt that no matter how house proud some of us are, being polite and giving our guests a warm welcome can be far more important. Here are the full results: How do things compare in your home? Share your thoughts below!
