Having a pile of coats on the stairs or otherwise lying around the house is not a good way to welcome guests. Adding a row of hooks provides a place for you and your guests to hang coats instead of heaping them somewhere.
Along with hooks, clearing your closet of the family's coats before a large gathering is a good idea. Put your own coats somewhere else (in the basement, in a bedroom closet) so there's ample room for guests to store their outerwear.
If you live in a climate where holiday time means a dip in temperature, guests will most likely be arriving with gloves, hats and scarves. Providing a large basket at the front door for them to leave their cold-weather items, and a smaller basket for keys, helps ensure no one forgets or loses anything they arrived with.
