Easy Doormat Layering Guide for Summer

When the seasons start to change, I get super excited just thinking about all the new rug and doormats that will be appearing!

I’m really hoping these combinations inspire you when it comes to decorating your front door this summer because I have so much fun creating these doormat layering mockups.

When picking rugs, I’m always drawn to neutral colors. And for a crisp summer look, I thought rugs with navy would be perfect.

Rugs – The First Layer

Rugs with stripes are always my first pick, but a nice textured gray or a fun checkered pattern can be lovely too. My tip is to keep the rug design simple and go bigger – at least 3 x 5.

The doormats are where I like to incorporate more design. For the summer, I picked colorful lemons, playful leaf patterns and stylin’ cross stripes.

Doormats – The Second Layer

Most doormats are sized around 2 x 3 which I think works perfectly with a bigger rug. But you can go bigger if you find a doormat that you just adore.
