This is a genkan (where you take your shoes off when you enter a Japanese home).  We don't have shoes on in our house, and something like this would make it a lot easier.

This is an example of a traditional genkan--the entryway to a Japanese home. Shoes do not go past this point. My in-laws just have simple tile in their genkan.

Genkan, or Japanese entryway. Pebbles or stone. Japanese-style mudroom. I love a clean house.
