Once you’ve experienced the convenience and practicality of having a mudroom in your home, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.
Imagine not having to step outside on days of unpleasant weather with your arms full of groceries or little ones in tow. Just pull up into your garage, close the door and step into your mudroom to unload from the day’s adventures!
Keeping it clean
Having a mudroom in your home means more space to strategically store your belongings. You can keep your primary entrance clean and open to greet your guests by storing the bulk of your everyday wear like shoes, coats and accessories in the mudroom’s generously-sized closet. Shelving units and hanging shoe racks can add to the storage capacity, and keep everything organized. The mudroom will quickly become a favourite room for your furry best friends — dry off those muddy paw prints here before letting the dog loose to the rest of the house.
If you don’t think you’ll use a mudroom much (but trust us, you will), consider converting it into a space you’ll get more use out of. As-is, this area provides enough room to add a console table, narrow desk or coat hooks, but by removing the closet doors, it provides a recessed space for a full-sized desk to create a legitimate office space. Or, add some floating shelves for books and a compact but comfy chair, and you have the perfect mini-library.
