First impressions can make all the difference — why should your entryway be any different? A doormat is the first thing someone sees when they show up at your pad or the last thing they see on their way out, so it shouldn't just be kicked to the curb. Whether outside to greet your guests and make them giggle or inside to remind you to turn off your straightener and grab your wallet, a doormat speaks volumes. Think of it as the finishing touch on your home decor.
As such, we're leaving the plain old "Welcome" mats to grandma; now's the time to step it up with a true statement maker. From Beyoncé references to witty plays on words to picks so pretty you'll hardly want to walk on them, the greeters ahead will put an extra pep in your step. Get ready to welcome your guests with a wink.
