This £5 Matalan homeware buy is taking over Instagram

You know what they say – first impressions count, and nowhere is that more true than when it comes to your house. Creating an inviting doorway is the first step to creating a well-curated home – and there’s one particular piece from Matalan that’s proving exceptionally popular when it comes to making an entrance.

The sweet and simple ‘Welcome’ mat has been snapped and shared on Instagram by a number of shoppers, all of whom are thrilled with their bargain purchase.

The thinner, wider shape of the mat is ideal for making the most of small spaces, as well as extending the warmest, most photogenic welcome to friends and family, of course. And it’s not the only cute design that the affordable store has in stock at the moment.

Social media savvy interiors fans have also gone wild for Matalan’s £7 embossed ‘Hello’ slogan doormat, a full-size option in a similarly stylish, swirly font.

Both mats are currently available to buy on the Matalan website, as are some tongue-in-cheek but equally chic options which all retail for £7 or less. Here are five of our favourites (bagsy the gin design!)
