Alright so I have *tried* to fit in all the comments but I *might* have missed some. I tried something with the mat in front the doors to make them look less floaty, let me know if I've succeeded.

This is a massive improvement from your initial piece! I love the wall detail.

I'm still getting "box" vibes from the doormats, and using noise for texture (as you do for some of the mats) generally isn't a good idea. Some of the carpet texture is doing odd things to the idea of shadows around the doormats, and I still think it looks a touch unnatural where the mats touch the doors.

Just a very quick edit with a few small ideas regarding texture. For the door, you can add texture to the outsides (top and bottom) and the middle can remain blank. To me, this gives a better finish than slapping texture all over a surface. It gives a sense of seeping damp to me as well. :)

For the mat, I've changed the single pixels (which contain no information) to double pixels, often married with opposite coloured counterparts. This should give more of an impression of actual texture (strands going in the same direction) and a little 3D from the contrasting colours.

I attempted to remove the box-like feel by getting rid of the hard borders and doing a little light-source work. (Imagine light coming from top-left as that matches the door.) Added a stain to the mat, softened the corners and gave it a bit of an angle.

Just ideas, feel free to ignore.

Great edit, thank you. Will give it a shot when you get home. A pictures *is* worth a thousand words!

This looks pretty good. It's a case of how much work you want to put in now, I guess!

There's carpet between the middle doormat and the door, which shouldn't be there I think.

In the vertical section, the doormats are square. They should probably be the same  shape as the others, just rotated 90 degrees.

Other than that (and anything I've missed!), any more work is basically polishing. Polishing grime?
