More Than Just Welcome Mats

We've reviewed photos of lots of remodels here at This Old House and have noticed virtually all lack one small finishing touch: a place to wipe one's feet. So once you've swept the landing and put out a pot of mums, treat yourself to this final bit of curb appeal. You'll find doormats to match your home's architectural style or reflect its natural surroundings, ones that put a handsome face on functionality or a spring in your step. Choose from hefty cast iron, sturdy rubber, washable vinyl, and grit-consuming coir. No need to scour the market, though—we've gathered up 19 of our favorites right here.
