The first step inside or outside the home can always make a statement. An area used daily but maybe not tended to as much should get a little love too. I’m talking about starting your entrance off on the right foot with a welcome mat!
Welcome mats are fun and come in numerous shapes and sizes. Pick one or two that suit you. Check out the fun options below from Grandin Road.
- The traditional welcome mat says, “welcome” yet there are so many other sayings to select from. You can customize a saying; monogram a mat for a classy look or combine a saying with a fun photo.

- Mats can be purchased in an array of colors. Anything from subtle and muted to vibrant and eye-catching. Play off your existing décor or if you have a softer hue inside; select the same color outside but in a brighter shade so it’s noticeable from the street. Tie in like colored planters, pillows and décor. Your porch’s curb appeal is your style on full display!

- While the design aspect of selecting a mat is always the fun part, remember that they also serve a purpose if you’re trying to talk yourself out of a purchase. They remove dirt and debris from shoes before they enter, preventing it from being tracked throughout the house. Secondly, if you select the right material, they are great for moisture absorption which we all know is a common problem through the various transitions of seasons.

Updating your entry with a fresh new mat will cause those passing by to give your porch a second glance and those who enter to look more at their step down since you took it a step up!
