6 Reasons Coir Matting Is An Excellent Addition To Your Tent - Lotus Belle UK

Looking for high quality flooring for your Lotus Belle tent? Here are 6 reasons coir matting is an excellent decision.


Coir matting provides an additional layer of insulation to your Lotus Belle tent's floor. It helps to trap heat inside the tent, keeping it warmer during cooler weather. This insulation is particularly valuable in colder climates or during chilly nights, enhancing the overall comfort of the glamping experience.


Coir matting is known for its durability and resilience. It can withstand heavy foot traffic and the wear and tear that camping equipment often endures. This durability ensures that the matting remains functional for an extended period, even in challenging outdoor conditions!


The coir fibers create a relatively comfortable and soft surface underfoot. This can be especially appreciated when glamping for extended periods, as it provides a more comfortable alternative to the tent base on top of bare ground.

Rustic Aesthetic:

Coir matting has a natural and rustic appearance, which can add to the ambiance of a glamping set up. It complements the outdoor environment and can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere inside the tent.

Moisture Resistance:

Coir matting has a degree of moisture resistance, which can help keep the tent's interior feel drier (through feeling less cold), and in the highly unlikely case of ground moisture or rainwater seepage.

Easy Maintenance:

Coir mats are relatively easy to clean. They can be shaken out or vacuumed to remove dirt and debris, and if necessary, they can be cleaned with a mild detergent and water.

While coir matting offers many advantages, it's worth noting that it can be relatively bulky and may not be the best choice for shorter trips as they’ll take up valuable packing space! However, for semi-permanent or more comfortable camping experiences, coir matting can be an excellent addition to your tent setup.
