Make your door pop with this wooden slat doormat in front of it.
Although not every house may have one, doormats are very special as they can determine whether or not your front door is inviting. A lot of people like to place a doormat in the front of their home as a way of greeting their guests before they personally can.
Of course, some people only put a doormat there so people can wipe off the dirty bottoms of their shoes but who cares about them.
Doormats should be fun and set off the tone of a great visit from your family and friends. And what better way to do that than by creating your own doormats. Personalize how you want your entryway to look!
