Mudroom Makeover Tips From the Pros

August 4, 2023 admin

If you’re lucky enough to have a mudroom, then you know how invaluable this space can be for the average family. Typically located near a house’s foyer or back entrance, a mudroom gets its name for being a place where muddy attire is removed before it can be tracked into other parts of the home. This is especially crucial for families with kids who love to play in the yard. However, these days a mudroom is also a popular spot to stow apparel like coats, shoes, and other outerwear. Along with keeping a home clean and dirt free, a well-organized mudroom can help with home organization, providing a centralized storage location for items that tend to get scattered throughout the house. Leaders in closet storage, we specialize in creating new mudrooms and remodeling existing ones to better fit our client’s needs. Keep reading for some of the top mudroom makeover tips from our talented technicians. 

Message Boards

Between work, school, and packed extracurricular schedules, the average family has a lot going on each week. So it’s not uncommon to post appointments and activities on a calendar in the kitchen. Unfortunately, few of us walk through the kitchen on the way out the door. By placing calendars and notes in the mudroom, you increase the odds that everyone in the family will see them when coming and going. You can up the convenience factor by including a message board or whiteboard in this part of the home. Give each family member a different colored marker so they can add notes or comments as needed. 

Shoe Storage

If you have kids, then you’re probably familiar with what happens when they wear wet or muddy footwear into the house. The good news is installing a shoe rack in your mudroom can encourage kids (and guests) to remove their boots and sneakers before entering the home. Consider opting for two shoe racks – one for outdoor shoes and one for indoor shoes, like slippers. You can even offer a few pairs of clean or disposable guest slippers for visitors with cold feet. 

Closed Doors

Cold-weather gear and boots aren’t always the most attractive items in your wardrobe. If you want to hide these pieces from public consumption, consider installing drawers and cabinets with doors that close. That way you can keep those huge red snow boots accessible without showing them off to friends and family.
