How to Keep an Entry Way Clean

Published on 4/12/2021

Entry ways are the first impression of a home. They also become the catch all spot for anything and everything that enters your house. Because of this, it’s easy to have the space become cluttered and dirty. Use these tips and tricks to keep your fresh and welcoming. 

Invest in a Good Doormat

Prior to even stepping foot inside the home, it’s important to wipe feet and shoes off. A good doormat can save your floor from small debris like freshly cut grass or harsher elements like salt from icy pathways in the winter. Heavy duty scraper mats are extremely durable and easy to clean with a hose.

Add Vertical Storage

Most mudrooms or entry ways aren’t exactly large, so it’s best to utilize as much vertical space for storage as possible. Adding cabinets can help store away seasonal items such as large winter coats in the spring/summer or hold sandals during fall/winter months. It also provides more areas to decorate as the seasons call for!

Designate a Shoe Area

Ideally, have some cubbies by the door to hold each family member’s shoes. This takes the shoes out from the middle of the room, eliminating the number one tripping hazard upon entering, as well as keeps the space more organized.
