Welcome Mats…Their Name Says It All!

Posted on: June 10th, 2015 by

Welcome Mats Are What Your Guests See First!Any fans of The Big Lebowski? That movie practically raised me from the ages of 11 – 17. Maybe not the best idea to be “raised” by a character who prides himself in his absolute laziness but nevertheless, hilarity ensued. The line “It really ties the room together.” is at the root of the shenanigans Jeff Bridges’s character “The Dude” faces to secure his rug back from the Germans who stole it from his home. Genius concept, I know. But there’s something to be said about that. Rugs really do  tie the room together. And something I noticed recently is how well welcome mats can “tie the room together” so to speak.

At my studio, we have several lock-out units. All rented by various musicians, drummers, recording engineers, and the occasional random-o solitaire weirdo that just wants a space away from home to do whatever the hell they want at whatever volume they want. But when you walk in, you immediately notice how the rooms with a door mat just look more official. Welcoming actually. It actually makes you think “there’s something going on in there probably.” Which is exactly why I acquired one for my studio. Now my synonymous door doesn’t just look like a closet space. It actually looks like “something is going in there” which is great since I make my extra income from clients there (as well as through various other avenues) stumbling onto my space and asking what services I offer.

The same applies to apartments and even larger houses. A nice mat at the front really just ties the room, porch, threshold together. Ever moved into a new apartment and feel like there’s something missing. It’s probably a mat! Big, beautiful entry mats or welcome mats to officiate you into your new place of residence. Never underestimate the power of simple items to really bring everything together.
