This baffles me. I have never heard of anyone taking off their shoes when going to someone else's home. Apartment Therapy - do some sort of geographical poll. I've never heard of this, and it just seems like common practice in some places and uncouth in others.

Absolutely not! Friendships and courtesy are more important than the sparkle of your white carpet (who has white carpet anyway?). If your flooring is more important than having guests feel comfortable in your home, you should spend your Saturday nights with your carpet. The idea of asking my guests to take off their shoes/the idea of someone else asking me to take off my shoes horrifies me. I prefer muddy shoes to toe jammy, sweaty, stinky feet, anyway. FULL DISCLOSURE: I'm from the deep south, where the manners of our grandparents still reign.

** If it is part of your culture, then that is a different scenario.
