A Mudroom Miracle: Finding a Place for All Your Stuff
You’ve got a beautiful entrance to your house—your front porch is decorated for the season and when you open the door, an elegant area rug and lighting fixture greets visitors.
But if you’re like many people, the only time someone walks through your front entrance is if they’ve never been to your house before. The entryway everyone uses is the side entrance—through the mudroom.
The mudroom is your catch-all space for outdoor gear, work and school bags, shoes, purses, and anything else you use just about everyday. If it’s not organized well it can end up looking messy, which you (and your guests) don’t want to be faced with every time you walk in the door.
Here are some excellent mudroom solutions to keep your stuff organized.
Open Storage That Puts Hats, Coats and Shoes within Reach
This mudroom features enough open storage space for several pairs of shoes and boots, as well as your collection of summer baseball caps, winter hats and gloves, and anything else you need to stash when you get home. The open storage makes it easy to reach for items on your way out the door. Store items you might not use as often in baskets and cabinets.
Got Kids? Get Drawers
Let’s face it. You’ve got kids, and when they get home from school they want to put away their coats, backpacks, musical instruments, shoes and anything else they carried home as fast as possible (if you’re lucky, that is; otherwise they’ll just drop it on the floor). Entryway drawers and cabinets that conceal storage can tidy up a space instantly. Each person in your family can store their belongings in a drawer each day, making it easier to find the next time you leave the house.
Along with that storage is a handy bench—no more sitting on the floor or trying to balance on one foot to lace up your shoes—and wall hooks for coats of any length.
A Storage Chest to Keep Outdoor Gear in One Place
Winter is coming. And with it come scarves to match each winter coat, coordinating mittens or gloves, and hats for every occasion. Whether you’re a family of two or six, keeping track of all that outdoor gear can be a pain—especially if you’ve got a few little ones.
A custom chest in your entryway—no matter how large—can easily solve this problem. It’s a space perfect for outdoor gear and it can double as a bench to help you get prepared to face colder temperatures outside—whether you’re going outside for fun or leaving for work or school.
The Ultimate Mudroom for Sports Storage
Without mudroom storage, there really is no great place to store skis, baseball bats, lacrosse sticks, tennis rackets, bike helmets and all of the other gear that goes along with playing sports. The garage doesn’t really work—equipment can get dirty, and it’s easy to misplace it.
This mudroom packs a lot of organization power in a corner, with a spot for just about every piece of equipment, as well as coats, umbrellas, shoes, hats and even some decorative items. What you store in the cabinets is up to you—it’ll be out of sight.
