I am all about making a great first impression. The same should ring true for your home! A fun, and easy way to add a pop of personality to your front door is with a great welcome mat. While welcome mats add visual interest to your stoop, they are also practical. A welcome mat traps, and collects dirt from the bottoms of your shoes with its abrasive surface. These little guys help keep the debris outside, where it belongs! This means less mess, and less time having to clean up. And, the best part is that there is a mat out there for everyone! I’ve rounded up some of my favourites that I hope you enjoy.

For the Animal Lover

You know I have a soft spot for furry creatures, so of course I think this option is fantastic!

For the Forgetful

Are you notoriously forgetting things? Keys? Wallet? Pants? Don’t worry, I won’t judge. Well, this mat is your daily reminder so that you don’t forget your every day necessities.

For the Bottomless

Home is where we go to unwind, and relax. And, maybe that means no pants. As mentioned above, to each their own. This handy mat will ensure that surprise visitors know exactly what they are getting themselves into when they show up unexpectedly at your house.

For the Friends Fanatic

Who doesn’t love a Friends marathon? With this mat, you can proclaim your adoration for the show, while also welcoming your own friends into your home. It’s a win-win situation, really!

For the Family

Is it a jungle in your house? Have a few human, and fur babies running around? Give people a heads up with this little gem.

For the Foodie

Who doesn’t love tacos? And, who doesn’t love someone who comes to visit you at your home AND brings tacos? That, people, is a friend worth keeping. So, give them a subtle hint before knocking. What have you got to lose? Best case scenario, is that you gain some tacos. And, that is always a good thing.

For the Newbie

New to the neighbouhood? This is the perfect mat for a housewarming present! Of course, the realtor in me loves this one.

For the Coffee Aficionado

I mean, you can’t possibly be surprised that this one made the list! You know I love my coffee, and I think this mat pretty much says it all. It’s perfect for lazy weekends, or for when it’s just too early to even think about visitors. Trust me, you don’t want to be knocking at my door before those first blissful sips of java.


So, tell me. Do you have a welcome mat that fits your personality? Maybe it’s time to do some shopping and find the perfect mat for your own home.
