My next home will have a mudroom!
Until then, do you have any suggestions for keeping entryways clean? We have a "no shoes in the house" rule, but the area rugs in front of the doors get routinely FILTHY as guests come in with shoes with dirt, snow, salt, and even small pebbles from our driveway. Even with consistent vaccuuming, the area rugs get ruined and then need to be replaced. I feel like I'm throwing money down the drain every time I replace them.
