One of the best ways to spruce up a front door area is to layer a doormat.
You can see a quick video here…
Your front porch and front door area are prime decorating real estate! They are the first impression of your home for anyone coming to your door. It’s important to make a good and welcoming one!
When you layer a doormat and a small rug in front of your front door happy magic seems to happen!
DRESS UP A DOORMAT IN THREE EASY STEPS
Here is how the front door area looks without any mat at all…
Now let’s make it a little more welcoming!
I cleaned the porch off around the door area then laid down a small rectangular black and white striped cotton rug.
I’ve used this black and white rug around the porch for a few years. Under rocking chairs mostly. But recently, I’ve used it at the front door!
Because my front door and porch are under a roof the rug does not get too too dirty. I usually take my stick vacuum out and give it a quick vacuum when I vacuum the front door.
And when the dirt shows I use the hose to spray it off! So easy, right?
Using that extra layer of a small indoor/outdoor rug makes all the difference in the look of my front door.
There are lots of style and sizes of rugs with fall in mind! Here are some of my favorites!
See how a simple rug and doormat can change the entire look of the front door?
Here are my favorite picks for fun doormats…
No matter how big or small the area around your front door, you can create more beauty by layering rugs!
Don’t you love it when decorating is that easy?
I love this look so much I’m planning on creating layered beauty at my front door for every season!
How about you? Pick out a small indoor/outdoor rug in a size that works with your front door and pick out a great doormat to top it off!
Easy-peasy and less than 20 minutes to decorate!
