Mudrooms – Entry Way Storage and Organization

{Better Homes and Gardens}

Have you dreamed about a separate room to house all the coats, shoes, backpack, etc. etc. that your family brings home? I dream of a mudroom that looks fabulous but still meets all my families needs.  Mudrooms have become more than just a place to hang your coat.  What about adding a potting bench, desk or even a sewing machine.

You can squeeze a practical mudroom into tiny spaces like:

  • entryways
  • Hallways
  • closets
  • Pantry
  • or even a free standing Armoire

Using the items you have like mirrors, hooks, baskets, and even a chair or bench.  Even  a tiny entry could do, by hanging a mirror, install a small shelf under the mirror and place a bench under the shelf with a basket under the bench.   Squeezing and stacking the items together you have just made use of a tiny space.

I love how they designed this room around an antique bench.  What do you have around your home that you could use?

I have an old closet in my laundry room….I plan to remove a couple of the doors and turn it into something like this.

Have you thought about designing your own mudroom?  What are some of your ideas?

Everything in its place and a place for everything….preventing clutter….That’s my dream of a perfect mudroom. Do you already have a mudroom? Why not give your mudroom a makeover?

Happy Day.
