When working with interior design, a lot of your focus probably goes into your flooring, wall colors and furniture. However, there’s much more that makes up your home’s interior than these three elements. One element of your home that is often overlooked is your welcome mat.
A welcome mat is the first to greet yourself and your guests, so it’s important to not pick out the first mat you see. Here’s some things to consider when purchasing an interior or exterior welcome mat.
There’s many different sizes and styles of welcome mats available. You don’t want something too big. Covering your entire entry way with a welcome mat doesn’t look the greatest. You’ve selected a specific flooring for your entry way, so don’t cover it all with a massive welcome mat. You also don’t want something that is too small, as it won’t be able to handle many shoes when having guests over. So make sure you know the size of your entry way or front porch when selecting your welcome mat.
Let’s face it, welcome mats have a tough job on a daily basis. They take on outdoor elements, whether an indoor or outdoor mat. If you want your welcome mats to last, make sure they are durable to handle whatever conditions will come their way.
Welcome mats are an important element of your home, and an interior welcome mat can even tie your entryway or porch together. So make sure you’re not just picking the first welcome mat you see.
