When’s the last time you took a close look at your welcome mat? You know, that thing on the ground right outside your front door. Chances are it’s looking pretty rough.
We replace items like toothbrushes and kitchen sponges every few months, but we don’t really pay attention to the condition of our welcome mat—even though it’s one of the first things people see when they come to our homes. It’s right there in the name, you know? A welcome mat should look, well, welcoming, not dusty, faded, and worn out.
Refreshing your welcome mat is one of the quickest, easiest, hassle-free ways to spruce up your entryway. No paint, tools, or expensive contractors needed. And having a welcoming home is something to be proud of—even if the only people who regularly see your welcome mat right now are mail carriers and delivery drivers.
