As the name suggests, a mudroom is an area for leaving behind your muddy shoes, wet jackets, and whatever else you want to drop off when you first enter your home. Therefore, a clean house can often begin with an organized mudroom. When organized correctly, this space becomes an excellent spot for storing a variety of easily-accessible items and helps to keep the house clean. We’d love to share our advice on how to build a mudroom that works for you and your home, and explain just how vital this space can be!
Your Home, Your Mudroom
A mudroom can be a portion of an entranceway, a shared space with a laundry room, a dedicated part of a hallway, an entire room, and more! Due to the flexibility of what can be used as a mudroom, you should know that one size does not fit all when it comes to building and utilizing one.
Keep It Clean
We all know how annoying it can be to have dirt and mud tracked into the house from the outside. That’s where the mudroom comes in! A space dedicated to taking off dirty clothes and shoes means that any potential mess can stay in one area. In a mudroom, durable and easy-to-clean flooring can make cleaning a lot more effortless. Additionally, mats inside and outside of the home to wipe your shoes on can minimize the amount of excess dirt making its way indoors.
Personalized Storage Area
The mudroom is an excellent spot for shoes and jackets. Since it’s often near a doorway, it’s also a great place to keep anything you want easy access to. This could range from outdoor games to backpacks to umbrellas and more.
It’s easy and beneficial to personalize your mudroom! A simple example of this is how you can build a storage area for each family member to keep shoes and jackets accessible and separated. Custom storage units mean that you can match the mudroom cabinets and furniture to fit with the rest of your home and fulfill your individual needs.
