Store the shoes right

There is nothing that looks worse than shoes that are sitting on the floor dripping mud and water. Pick up some boot trays and leave them next to the door. Then people take off their shoes and immediately store them there.

This makes things look neater and keeps your home clean.

You can even have a basket of slippers for people to wear once they have taken their shoes off. If you want to be extra accommodating.

Numbers can be your friend

If you have a big family a great idea to solve a lot of the clutter problems is to give everyone a number. Yes, a number. They will each get a box or basket at the entryway and all of their things must go into it.

Nothing is to be left on tables or the floor. This gives everyone a place to keep small stuff without giving the entryway a cluttered look.
