Here at Closet and Storage Concepts of Henderson and Las Vegas, Nevada, we know that one of the most important parts of your home is your entry way. This is the first thing you see when you come home, and the last room you view as you leave. It is the first impression that people have when they enter your home and leaves an indelible mark on how you think about your house and home. This means that it is critical to have a clean and orderly entryway, which will save you time and space, while improving the overall look and feel of your home.
Make sure to keep shoes out of sight and out from underfoot by implementing proper shoe storage. Making sure that you have a good shoe rack or set of cubbies for your family’s shoes will help to keep things clean. Implement a no-shoes-in-the-house rule and have a spot to the side of the door where all the shoes can be stored. This will keep your house clean and germ-free, since people won’t be bringing in dirt and muck on the soles of their shoes, which can get tracked through the rest of the house.
Having a good place to immediately hang up coats and jackets will help prevent pile-ups in the entryway. If you’re lucky enough to have a closet on hand, that’s a great way to keep things off the floors, but if not, simply invest in a coat rack, or even a simple set of wall hooks, which will provide easy and convenient storage for everyone’s outer layers, without them ending up on the floor or in the laundry.
Even with a no-shoes-in-the-house policy, it’s inevitable that some dirt and grime will get tracked in to the house. Prevent damage to your floors and cut down on clean-up time by investing in a sturdy doormat and carpet runner. The doormat will be your first line of defense when it comes to preventing dirt from being brought inside, but a carpet runner will also help for anyone who happens to forget the cardinal no-shoes rule.
With these simple solutions you can drastically improve the quality, experience, and appearance of your entryway. For more home organization and storage solutions, visit Closet & Storage Concepts of Las Vegas, Nevada, today!
