Wipe Your Paws Doormat
Even though it seems like a small matter, your entryway doormat can show your family’s personality. Guests to your home are going to notice your exterior as their first impression, so it’s important to keep it well-maintained.

Keep your lawn mowed, your bushes trimmed, your leaves raked and your sidewalks snow plowed. Your doormat is a great way to welcome guests to your home, add to your curb appeal, and enhance a welcome to any guest. Here are the three types of doormats most people choose for their front door.

Pet Lovers Doormats

People love to use their doormats to brag about their pets. Some even us it as a warning of sorts, like “beware of the dog” and “beware: our dog doesn’t know sit” to imply the dog may jump on you when you enter the door, or that the dog may be dangerous. Some are cute and say “wipe your paws” as if their guests are pets that can read that. Pet lovers love to express their animal love on their doormats.

Nature Lovers

Those that love to be outdoors or appreciate the beauty of nature might spice up their entrance way with a nature-like doormat. Something with leaves, flowers, or trees would be a great way to enhance your doorway. It will blend in well with the surroundings and also show your personality.

Preppy Doormats

For those that like to have their name involved in the doormat, try a monogram of your last name’s first letter, or your whole last name. If you have a family crest, you could have it put on the doormat as well. It’ll look sophisticated and classy in your entrance way.

From a classy greeting to a friendly animal message, you can be really creative with your doormat and enhance your entrance way all at once.
