How to Make Your Entryway Guest Ready At All Times

How to Make Your Entryway Guest Ready At All Times How to Make Your Entryway Guest Ready At All Times

What’s the first thing a guest sees when they visit? The entryway of your home, of course. Whether that guest is coming inside to stay for awhile or they’re just dropping by for a minute or two, your entryway creates an impression that will last. Check out these ideas to help you make your entryway guest ready at all times:

Do a Regular Sweep

Keeping your entryway ready to greet guests means doing a regular sweep of the area. Make it a habit to check your entryway on a daily basis so you can clear away any clutter that has cropped up and tidy up. Enlist your family to help you. A quick sweep through to straighten and tidy up every day will mean that your entryway is neat and presentable all the time.

Keep It Simple

Don’t turn your entryway into this complicated area that is full of stuff. Visually, an entryway that is crowded with coats, shoes, and lots of other clutter or even decorative elements can be a little disarming. Move all of that stuff out of direct view, or even elsewhere if possible. If you have nowhere else to put these items, at least move it so a guest who comes to the door doesn’t see it all immediately. Remember, less is more — keep it simple in your entryway and remove as much “stuff” as possible.

Make It Functional

A functional entryway is a happy entryway. In short, make your entryway work for you, not against you. If the entryway is not the access your family uses regularly to come and go, then you’re that much ahead. You can keep the family items at another door. For a guest entryway, keep a coat tree for guest coats and purses, as well as a small bench for sitting and removing or putting on shoes or boots. A welcome rug is a must for both atmosphere and a place for guests to wipe their feet.

Hide and Seek

If your entryway becomes cluttered easily, set up a pretty book shelf and decorative boxes to collect — and hide — the clutter. This will help keep your entryway neat and organized so guests won’t be greeted by an explosion of stuff all over the area. If there isn’t space for a book shelf to keep clutter at bay, consider a bench with hidden storage. This can double for both storage and a clutter keeper.

Make it a regular part of cleaning and maintenance around your home to put your entryway in order. Daily sweeping and tidying in this particular area can have it ready to receive and welcome guests at a moment’s notice.

Vaseline Intensive Care’s Rapid Renewal Challenge + $1 off Coupon #RapidRenewal

VICL Victory FD2 Vaseline Intensive Care’s Rapid Renewal Challenge + $1 off Coupon #RapidRenewal

During the colder months, one of my biggest challenges with my skin is dry, itchy skin. I don’t have a lot of time in the morning so I need a product that is quick and easy to use. My youngest son also shares my dry skin issues. We decided to put the Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion to the test and take the Vaseline Rapid Renewal Challenge.

Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Lotion


Vaseline Intensive Care Essentials Healing Lotion is clinically proven to moisturize deeply upon the first application and keep dry skin healed for three weeks. I noticed results right after using it for the first time especially on his extremely dry knees. He has extremely dry skin that hurts me to look at it. I think he is just so used to having dry skin that it seems normal to him. In the past he has absolutely refused to allow me to put lotion on because it feels weird. I was able to do a sneak attack and lather him down with lotion without any complaints about it feeling weird. After just a few days of use, you could see the different on his skin. Also, no complaints or crying when I suggest putting on the lotion.
