Here Are Some Great Doormats to Welcome Guests

A welcome mat is one of the first ways to greet guests and frankly, a front door looks pretty naked without one.  Sure, it needs to be functional, but you can still greet guests in style by choosing an inviting option that's either decorated with a charming or pretty motif, or is cleverly worded.  Brighten your doorstep with a welcome mat that is as original as you are, and you'll be sure to leave a lasting first impression.
