Not all Modesto homeowners have a house with a mudroom, but those who do are likely familiar with the organizational troubles that come along with them. In many cases, mudrooms function as the point of entry from a garage into a home. If you don’t have a good storage system in place, this area can quickly become a cluttered disaster zone. That’s why Closet & Storage Concepts is here to share some tips on how to organize your mudroom with a customized storage solution.
A common purpose of mudrooms is a place to store shoes, coats, dog leashes, umbrellas, and other outdoor accessories. When designing your mudroom’s storage, it’s important to take into account what kinds of items you’ll be storing there. If you have a lot of coats, make sure you include plenty of hanging areas. Whether this is in the form of hooks, rods, or a combination of the two, this will be key to keeping your coats and jackets from accumulating in a heap on the floor. Another great thing to incorporate into your mudroom storage is a shoe rack. There are a variety of styles, so you can easily find the one that works for your space. A lift top bench is another versatile component that works well in these settings. Not only does it provide a seating area you can use to put on your shoes, but it also provides additional storage you can keep hidden.
Customized To Your Family’s Needs
There are a variety of ways you can design your storage system. It’s all about making it work for your lifestyle. One method is to give every member of your family a designated area for their things. That way everyone can easily keep track of his or her own personal belongings. A set of cubbies works well for this. You can create further organization (and style) within the cubbies by adding storage baskets for small items. This type of personalized storage model can be especially beneficial for families with kids, as it encourages them to learn good habits early on. If they have their own cubby, they’ll have a quick place to drop their backpacks and jackets when they get home from school. You can even add a drawer or shelving unit for them to use as safe storage for their homework and school supplies.
If your home has a mudroom, we highly recommend giving it the TLC you might give to your bedroom closet or living room. Maintaining good organization in this area can set the tone for the rest of your home, as it’s often the first point of entry. Having a place to drop your coat, bags, and shoes without making a mess will help keep your house clean from the get-go.
