Green Steal of the Week: Dotti Doormats

Green Steal of the Week: Dotti Doormats

When we are decorating our homes, it can be easy to forget about curb appeal. After all, you don’t see the outside of your home once you get inside and get comfortable and cozy. You also see your own house every day, so it isn’t uncommon for us to neglect little things that can make our homes look great from the outside — like chipping paint, an old door, or a dirty (or missing doormat).

Thanks to this great green steal, the latter is a problem you can remedy very inexpensively. These great Dotti Doormats are just $10 apiece. My personal favorite is the one with the rings of concentric color. They will add a little spice to your doorstep for very little money. Line up several dots of color to create a unique walking path to your door. And if you really want to spice things up, grab a gallon of zero-VOC paint and give your front door a makeover. And for less than $50, you’ve given your home a dash of curb appeal that might help remind you why you loved your home in the first place.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of coir, or natural coconut husks
  • Biodegradable

Price: $10 (aff)

    I love the doormats. i have a question about painting the door that maybe you or your readers can help me with. I have a new door and had to paint it (which I already did). The problem? Streaks? How do I avoid the streaks when I have to use a paint brush?

    @ carrie and Linda No problem! I aim to please!

    @ Ann I’m honestly not sure. It could depend on a couple of factors, from the texture of the door to the paint you used. As for the paint brush, try one with softer bristles that are less likely to drag through the paint as it is going on. Hope that helps, at least a little 🙂
