Simple 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 really hope these combinations inspire you when it comes to decorating your front door this summer.  I have so much fun creating these 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.
