Welcome Mats That Really Know How To Make Your Guests Smile

Sometimes, it's nice to give people an idea of what to expect before entering your home. Maybe it's someone new coming over for the first time, or maybe it's the same friend who's been barging in and stealing food from your fridge for 20 years. Either way, it's nice to give people a bit of a laugh.

Instead of buying a doormat that just says "welcome" like all the rest, why not use one that has a little more personality?

A friendly warning:

It's nice to know who you are. Your family is loud, rambunctious, and constantly teetering on the edge of an explosion. They're your crazy mess, and you love them. But sometimes it's nice to give people a heads up. WandNDesigns' welcome mat has got you covered.

The world's most frequently asked question:
