Dull one might say “welcome” (3)


I believe the answer is:


This clue is a double definition.

'dull' is the first definition.
(mat as opposed to glossy)

'one might say welcome' is the second definition.
(as in a welcome mat)

(Other definitions for mat that I've seen before include "Foot-wiper on which welcome may be kept" , "What the cat sat on?" , "Small carpet" , "Rug; without a shine" , "Rough piece of floor-covering" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
