Footwear in the Foyer

Shoes need to be kept either on a mat or on a movable supporting rack so that the floor underneath can be cleaned regularly. In a formal foyer, you can use mats placed inside the closet under the coats. In a less formal entryway or where there's no closet, use attractive wooden or metal shoe racks to hold shoes and boots, or use a decorative wicker basket as an entryway accent and shoe organizer. Stackable shoe shelves are inexpensive and provide plenty of air circulation that will help wet shoes and boots to dry.

We have shelves in the mud room & a basket in the front room. Everyone is pretty good about it but my 10yr old son, he seems to like to take them off in the bathroom lol.

It also helps with the "akk we got to go, where are my shoes?" blues.

We come in through the garage, and if shoes are muddy, we leave them in there.
