The workhorse of the home … the Mudroom
It’s on wet, snowy days like today when I’m reminded what a workhorse the mudroom can be. Especially in my house where there are three boys and a big dog!
Since adding a mudroom to our house we’ve effectively replaced the front door – 80% of the traffic in and out of the house is through the mudroom entrance. The space we had to work with was small – about 6′ x 10′ but we were able to fit in a closet for coat and shoe storage and a built-in unit with a bench, hooks, storage above and to one side.
Here’s what one side of the space looks like today (not staged … a real-life photo):
Critical to the success of the space was storage – everything had to have a place!
In the spirit of mudrooms … here are a few prettied up ones for you to drool over.
Do you have a mudroom? How is yours organized?
