poly mat

arrived this week from the UK, and for

£28 (Dh162)

, I'm really pleased with it. The colour really livens up the kitchen, and as something of a bird obsessive, I love the design.

I bought it because as the owner of a dog who gets covered in wet sand most morning,

I needed something durable and easy to clean but more attractive than a standard door mat. This is made of recycled plastic, so repels dirty paw prints and just needs a quick shake and wipe down, saving me from getting the vacuum out every five minutes.

Big enough to use a yoga mag or a picnic rug on the beach or in the garden, it's also light enough that you can just roll it up and go. Available in

coral pink and canary yellow

(two of this spring's biggest colour trends),

purple and turquoise

, I got mine via my Aramex account (shipping costs were Dh41) but direct delivery here is also available.
