turning the ubiquitous WELCOME mat upside-down.


While most doormats welcome you into your home, Be There in Five's products are primarily designed to see you on your way out. After spending one too many cab fares to get home and unplug her curling iron, Kate decided to design doormats to help girls on the go remember important things while they were running out the door. Whether it's to remind you that you look great today, to turn off your various appliances, or to simply have the best day ever, Be There in Five provides lighthearted designs to make your day a little less stressful (and your home a little safer!).

"Turn off your straightener," "turn off your curling iron," and "you're like, really pretty" were where it all began, and a now variety of reminders, affirmations and custom options are offered to provide unique and practical pieces of home decor. Depending on where the mat will be used, both indoor (hand painted) and outdoor (screen printed) options are available.

hand painted mats

The original Be There in Five hand painted styles are made with love by Kate, her mom and team members Kiana & Marina (bios to come!). These have a 2 (max 3) week processing time due to the time it takes to paint two coats, dry, seal and touch them up. These mats are a beautiful indoor alternative to the standard floor mat, but are primarily decorative and not recommended for areas with heavy foot traffic. There are two size variations (18x30 or 20x34) and different colors and customizations can be accommodated. 

screen printed mats

To provide more variety for our most popular designs, we offer a screen printed option that is outdoor-friendly and ready to ship in 1 (max 2) weeks. They are designed here in Chicago then printed in North Carolina with color-fast inks. These have a clean, simple aesthetic with a subtle black border and are ideal for using in areas susceptible to weather and high foot traffic. All mats are 18x27 and cannot be customized. Wholesalers: Screen printed are the only options available to retailers at this time.
