There are so many wonderful ways to say Welcome to our home.
The first impressions people make when arriving at your home can be as simple as the mat that is sitting outside of your front door. We all like to make a great first impression, even if it’s for the person dropping off a parcel. Having a really nice decorative Welcome Mat at your doorstep is a great start!
A worn out Mat or one that is falling apart does not make a good first impression at all. It seems to say that this is what to expect from the rest of the home. It might not be the truth, but it is the impression that is made.
I’d like to show you some really pretty, unique and decorative “Welcome Mats” that will have your company smiling even before they come in!
When you arrive at the front door it’s nice to look down at a welcome mat that is beautiful and makes it easy to give your feet a wipe before entering. It speaks volumes about your hosts and just how much they like their home and space.
First Impressions and Home Decor
Not only does it make a great first impression, it also keeps your home cleaner. I personally love the idea of a novelty print on my Welcome Mat. I love birds and spend many hours in my gardens, so the Birds or the Geraniums, would be my first choice for a Welcome Mat at my door!
Having said that, I also love ” Wipe your Paws”, because, even though I don’t have a dog right now, that is subject to change. You can also use your outdoor area to show your team support. If you are a football fan or other fan there are Outdoor Mats that will speak to your particular brand of sports teams too.
The last picture showcased above is a rubber frame made for these Outdoor Welcome Mats. The coir mats sit within the rubber frame giving it a non-slip, skid-resisting backing. It gives the mats a little bit more of a decorative look with the scroll work around the edges too. All of these mats can be used with or without the added rubberized frame.
Size Can Matter
Having a large outdoor welcome mat is an addition to your home that you will not regret. Friends and family alike will no doubt put that mat to good use, especially in the spring when things outdoors can sometimes be less than idyllic. The Welcome Mat will protect your home and your porch as well.

The standard sizes for most of these Welcome Mats are 18 inches by 30 inches which fits nicely in front of a doorway. Coir is a natural fiber that is environmentally friendly and does a really good job of cleaning shoes before they enter the home. The fibers are stiff enough to release the dirt from under the shoes. It’s a great choice for an outdoor area that is somewhat protected either by an overhang or awning.
If you don’t find anything that you like at My Evergreen there are also a myriad of Welcome Mats available from Amazon as well. The first two that are shown below are rubber mats made of recycled materials. If you are looking for an inexpensive Welcome Mat, that doesn’t look cheap, these two would be good choices. I cannot speak for their ability to last as I have not tried these for myself. The last two from Amazon are Coir Fibers Mats and I like them a lot. They are durable and will look nice for a long time. I also like that the crescent shaped one comes in two sizes 18 x 30 inches and a larger outdoor mat measuring 24 x 39 inches. It also has an interesting design that is very inviting.
So many Choices!
Really the choice is yours completely, but I can say from experience that a Beautiful Welcome Mat at the door is like an invitation to friends and family. The coir mats will last a long time and are easy to care for.

Spring is coming and you know you want to spruce up the outside of your home. A new Outdoor Welcome Mat is a great way to do just that! It will look really nice and help you keep your floors indoors cleaner as the seasons change.
I hope you find something nice for your home, that is a reflection of you and your family!
