Winter is a great time to update your porch! And what better way than to change out your doormats. I’m sure you’ve seen all the layered doormats, but do you wonder how to get the right look? I have broken it down for you with my doormat layering guide.
Plus, check out the ways I’ve updated my winter porch to be more welcoming in the coldest months of the year.

I recently replaced my front porch light with this pendant from Rejuvenation. I am still loving the bright red shade! And I wanted the color to really stand out so I kept the rest of the decor pretty neutral.
An easy way to add character to your front porch for winter is to add some fresh flowers. These cyclamen blooms in reds and pinks add a pop of color. You can see my spring porch from last year HERE.
And I love this gold garden stool that I found at my local Homegoods. I topped the stool with my belly basket and draped a throw over the edge. And I had a big bunch of silk tulips that I stuck inside of it.
These two additions added the perfect amount of texture and early spring touches.
How To Layer Your Doormat and Rug
To add some fun to my front porch, I put out my black and white striped rug and my favorite doormat. I love to layer a rug underneath your doormat. It instantly adds some personality and pattern to your front porch.
And it’s a great way to add color when you want to. Here are some of my favorite combinations!

You can, of course, mix and match any of these rugs and doormats. A stripe works really well as a backdrop and can be layered with a floral print.
And I love to add in a funny saying to your front doormat. Because, what a great way to put a smile on someone’s face when they ring your bell!

Ashley, This is gorgeous!! will you come style my porch?
Oh I LOVE this idea so much Ashley! I have found so many cute doormats that are too small for my double front doors, but now I know exactly how to fix that problem- thank you! (and that work/wine one is too cute!!)
Oh my goodness I love those layered rugs! I love what the door mat says. So cute! Happy valentine’s day Ashley.
Such a welcoming and cute porch! Love the pop of red!
I’m so jealous of your potted plants!! We are still covered in snow! YOur door mat is the BEST!
I absolutely love your doormat pairing! Genius girl! Your front door is so welcoming. I love it all. xo
I love what you did on your front porch! I have the ‘hello goodbye’ mat and it looks too small for my double doors…thanks for the layering idea! Love your red light!
What size rug do you recommend for a standard single front door and a standard door mat?
Depending on the width of your entryway, a 2×3 or 3×5 rug works best. The 3×5 will look better but it may be too wide depending on the structure of your home. Have fun decorating!
Love your front porch, and you have the best idea to layer your mats! I’ll have to try that with mine! I hear you about putting away Christmas decor, and now it feels like summer around here! Thanks for all your help on this blog hop, we three make such a great team!
