Welcome Summer with Nickel Designs Doormats: A Guide to Creating the Perfect Porch

I'm thrilled to share some exciting ideas for sprucing up your front porch this summer!

Our handmade doormats not only add a personal touch to your home but also set the tone for a warm and inviting entrance. This summer season, we have stunning designs that are perfect for celebrating summer. Let's dive into how you can use these doormats, layering rugs, and coordinating decor to create a gorgeous summer porch.

Welcome Fireworks Doormat: Sparkle with Patriotic Pride

The Welcome Fireworks Doormat is all about celebrating summer with a bang. Its patriotic design featuring multicolor fireworks and stars, along with the bold "welcome" text, makes it perfect for those summer gatherings and Fourth of July parties.

Tips for Decorating:

  • Layering Rug: Choose a neutral-colored or subtly patterned outdoor rug to layer underneath. A navy blue or red rug with a simple stripe design would enhance the patriotic theme without overwhelming the eye.
  • Plants: Incorporate potted plants with vibrant blooms in red, white, and blue. Geraniums, petunias, and blue lobelia are great options. My favorite tall planters are linked here!
  • Coordinating Decor: Add a few festive touches like a wreath with mini flags, string lights, and red lanterns. These elements will create a cohesive look and make your porch a welcoming spot for guests.

Patriotic Star Doormat: Star-Spangled Style

Our Patriotic Star Doormat features an oversized spirited star pattern, perfect for showing off your love for the stars and stripes. This doormat is ideal for a porch that celebrates the essence of American summer.

Tips for Decorating:

  • Layering Rug: A classic red-and-white striped rug can provide a striking contrast to the vibrant star pattern. It adds a modern touch while keeping the focus on the doormat.
  • Plants: Mix and match topiaries in tall black containers for a rustic yet chic look. 
  • Coordinating Decor: Hang a red floral wreath, and place a couple of American flag-themed throw pillows on a nearby bench. This setup will exude patriotism and charm.

By combining our handcrafted doormats with layering rugs, plants, and thoughtfully chosen decor items, you can create a front porch that not only looks stunning but also feels like an extension of your home. I hope these tips inspire you to transform your porch into a welcoming oasis this summer. Happy decorating!
