Try living in Canada with various winter conditions, snow, slush, rain, salt, etc. requiring different footwear and garments depending on the day. Footwear has a tendency to build up in the entrance, depending on the weather. Some things we just have to accept as every day living, it would require a huge entrance to accommodate the reality.

Small adhesive cup hooks hold my house keys on one and car keys on another near the door. I can see them from a distance ( yep, both there) and not lost amidst clutter or buried in purse).

For inside rugs at the doors, the optimum rug is a water-hog rug which absorbs liquids, mud, etc. When water-hog rugs need a cleaning, they only require hosing off and tiny drizzle of liquid detergent on a brush, occasionally. Using water-hog rugs at doors will change your life. We have found the only challenge to these rugs is dog hair. Once vacuumed it also needs a lint remover.
