A mudroom is a transition between the outdoors and the indoors, holding things that would clutter up your home. Wet stuff, muddy stuff.
They’ve been around for decades but are increasingly popular now as our homes have gotten bigger. They’ve gone from being an initial entryway to a dedicated storage room.
Adding a mudroom to your home can help make your life simpler and even increase your home’s value when it comes time to sell. A well-designed entry looks inviting to prospective buyers as they’re always looking for customized organization and storage areas.
Design it right and your mudroom becomes a great landing space.
• Consider racks for shoes, built-in cubbies, hooks for jackets and catchall storage for outdoor equipment like sports gear, snow clothes, or gardening tools.
• An energy-efficient door to help maintain the temperature inside your home.
• Remember to select heavy duty flooring that’s easily cleaned.
• Add a bench, a pet washing station, or combine it with your laundry room.
So many options. Big or small. Rustic or modern, a mudroom can be just the thing to make your home work even better for you and your family.
