Our backyard extends beyond the area behind our house, it includes the places we frequent, the places we visit, the places where we live life. This blog is all about the things we find in our backyard and beyond.

Personalized Home

Doormats have gotten a bad rep. You may be like me where the mere word doormat already sets my guards up. But, this time I am not using the term metaphorically. I really am referring to the actual doormat, the first thing that your guests come upon when they walk up to your door.

They say that a home reflects the personality of its occupants. So if you are the welcoming sort of person, personalized doormats can let your visitors know you are proud of your home and they are welcome to cross its threshold. A variety of styles are available to suit your style and way of life. Sometimes a pretty and brightly colored mat may not do the job. Maybe your lifestyle needs a no nonsense, utilitarian mat. Well, it may be hardworking, but it doesn't have to be drab. You can still have an attractive and personalize mat that is also useful.

Doormats are not the only things you can personalize on your house though. A custom address plaque could also be a very nice addition to your home's facade. Having a personalized home address sign shows not only your pride in your home but it also highlights what could be a very mundane sign and makes an elegant statement about you.

With Christmas coming up, a personalized gift is worth considering.
