If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then perhaps doormats are the windows to the home. Okay, we take that back...windows are obviously the windows of the home—but a doormat is basically your home's first impression, as it introduces your style and aesthetic to guests. So toss that old, ragged doormat and spring for something fun! Here are 10 doormats you can buy now that would look great in your newlywed home.
Things to take into account when you're picking out a doormat? First of all, choose something you don't think you'll easily tire of. You're going to see it at least twice a day, if not more. So if you're someone who will get sick of reading the same thing everyday when you walk out of or into your home, then don't opt for a text-based mat. If you're apt to tire of decor pieces that are too trendy, make sure you get a doormat that's classic and simple. Want something to make your door stand out among a sea of ubiquity, or a row of identical apartment doors? Try getting a mat in an unusual shape (like the below semi-circle) or opt for a normal rug in a smaller 2x3 size.
