Welcome mats, they’re not just for wiping your feet anymore. They are also an integral part of your front door decor and can make a bold, simple, stylish, or humorous statement about you and your family. The functional aspect of a doormat can’t be denied, they are one of the best preventive measures a homeowner can take to eliminate dirt in the house, but it isn’t the only reason to find the perfect fit for your home. Once you have your custom uber doors picked out and hung up, you can take a few minutes to do some online shopping and find the perfect mat for your entryway. Here are some of our favorites:
1. Color Me Beautiful
