I’ve seen the layered door mats trend here and there on Instagram and have always thought it was so cute! 2 years after selling our home and finally purchasing a new one, it’s got me thinking about things like this again. Especially now that we’re coming up on fall, which means setting out pumpkins and mums on my new front porch!
I love how you can add personality to your home and showcase a little bit of who you are before someone even enters your home. I’m already dreaming of lining the sidewalk that leads to our front door with pumpkins in the fall, and Christmas lights in December. Making my company feel welcome and invited is important to me, and it can start with the front door!
We have had the door mat “C’ since we moved into our apartment, and it’s darling! I was so excited to bring it to our new home that I grabbed it when we were moving, placed it at our new front door, and then laughed… it was way too small! Seriously, check out my Instagram for a before and after, it was not the right size at all. But, I truly love that rug and so I knew this was the perfect time to grab myself a rug to go underneath and hop on the layered door mat trend.
Here are some of my favorite options I’ve rounded up as I’ve been searching!
What I love about all of these rugs is that they’re specifically outdoor/indoor rugs. I’ve found it challenging to find rugs for layering underneath that are designated for outdoors. We do not have an awning over our front door, so there is nothing to protect it from the rain. These six that I’ve rounded up will all do well outside, even if you’re like me and don’t have any covering over your front door, just a concrete slab like what I’m working with.
Here are some of my favorite ways to layer them!
Are you on the layered door mat train? Which two would you layer together?
