Shoe rack Taking off shoes in house

Have you ever seen “No shoes” sign at someone’s house? or maybe are you displaying the sign at your house? I often see such a sign when I use a vacation rental.  Even if there are no such signs, many places have a house rule “taking off shoes in house”.  I was wondering how these signs are effective? I am accustomed to remove shoes at home, so I don’t mind removing the shoes. But do most follow the rule?  I don’t know.

I noticed that a few places have appropriate shoe rack that encourages guests to take off the shoes.  One time I took off shoes in front of the entrance, still outside, but there was no shoe rack inside nor outside of the house.  I left the shoes outside, but it rained at night!  Another time I stayed in a condo and removed the shoes before the entrance.  We went to beach and hiking. Eventually there are too many shoes and flip-flops outside, messy!

So I would suggest shoe racks for no-shoes house.  At my house I like the shoe cabinet, or shoe rack with doors to hide shoes, but for this purpose, I chose shoe benches that guests can sit and remove shoes.

If you need a boots rack, particularly for rain boots or snow boots, I would suggest outside boots rack to avoid wet floor/carpet.  Simple boot rack such as Boot & Shoe Organizer Storage Rack by Better Homes & Gardens works for this purpose.
