Snowscapes can make the most beautiful winter scenes, but we can all agree that they are better left outdoors — no one likes trudging in the slush and grime of winter, so why would you want to bring it in with you? Be ready with the ultimate snowy-season must-have: a boot tray. A winter essential for any home, it gives you a dedicated place to put your dripping, snow-covered, salt-crusted boots when you come home that isn’t your clean hardwood floors.

Plus, as the snow melts, the lip of the tray collects the water and prevents messy puddles. We call that a win-win. Below, check out 12 of our favorite boot trays that range from affordable, sturdy picks to stylish finds you’ll love adding to your entryway.
