A Warm Welcome (Mat) For Everyone!

A Warm Welcome (Mat) For Everyone!

A welcome mat is great way to help keep your home clean and it's also often a catchy way to invite people in. The more homes I photograph, the more I find it interesting what you see at their front door… is it a welcome mat, a pot of plants, a chair? Here are a fun collection of mats that look great outside any home, office or building.

What used to be a nice classic tradition to any doorstep has become a fun way to express your personality, before even entering your home! I personally love the one that says "Leave" because it's straight and to the point, and funny. What I also love about all five of these mats, is that you could technically make them yourself, just as Miguez did in photo #1 with the "Hello". She printed letters from her computer, cut them out like stencils and spray painted it in mere minutes! I found this a great idea for your home or even for a gift!
