We close any doors we dont want him to have access to because he tends to get into everything and rob trash cans! Most, if not all play and exercise occurs outside the house - playing ball, training club, walks, etc., and inside time is for chewing and rest. If he his bouncing off the walls, outside we go! He gets free access to the house though and is not crated unless we leave him home alone.
Make sure he gets plenty of exercise and keep an eye on him in the house. The "newness" of areas will get old as he gets used to it. Puppies want to get into everything that's new, and the more hes out and about in the house, the more normal it'll become for him. Redirect him to appropriate toys and chews, make sure to give and enforce commands (leave it, off, etc.!!), and watch him like a hawk as he's learning the right way to act. Practice NILIF too, which I think someone else mentioned.
It'll get better with consistency!
