Layered Doormats for Spring

The layered doormat look has become quite popular, and I love the welcoming feel it brings to my front porch. If you haven’t tried this yet here are some tips and suggested combinations for selecting your rugs and doormats.

Selecting Your Layered Doormats for Spring

Before you begin shopping you need to know the size of rugs you’ll need. The most common sizes for doormats are 17″ x 30″ or 18″ x 30.” Some do come in larger sizes, so be sure to double-check the size before you buy.

While the top layer (the doormat) comes in pretty standard sizes, there are a few things to consider when choosing the size of your base layer rug.

Single or double doors

If you have double doors you’ll be working with a larger width, so consider this when selecting your base rug.
Do you have sidelights (those tall windows on each side of your door)? If so, you may also need a wider base rug.

space around your door

Another thing to think about is the space on your porch. Is there a wall nearby on one or both sides of your front door? The base rug will need to be centered on your door, so even if there is a wall on only one side you need to know how much space you’re working with before purchasing rugs.

outdoor rugs vs indoor rugs

For porches that are fully covered you may be able to use an indoor rug. If you choose an indoor rug get one that is washable. Even if your porch is mostly protected, this is a high traffic area which will produce a dirty rug over time. If your porch is more exposed, you’ll definitely want to get a more durable rug designed specifically for outdoor use.
