Replacing doors is an affordable way to quickly enhance and upgrade the appearance and decor of a home. But before you run off to your local home improvement center, take a few minutes (and careful measurements) to consider all the options available in both exterior and interior doors.
Welcome mats often retain water creating problems with porch decking and keeping them from being useful to clean shoes. Use an old plastic grid diffuser from a fluorescent light fixture and place it beneath the mat to allow water to drain out. Use a jig saw to cut the grid to fit. You may also want to use screws in the corners of the grid to keep it in place and prevent slips and falls.
