Mudrooms Help Families Master Messes

organized laundry room with storageA modern mudroom can greatly improve the cleanliness and organization of your home by creating a transitional area between the outdoors and the comfort of your living space. Having a place to kick off dirty shoes, hang wet jackets and stow away backpacks and briefcases can greatly reduce the intrusion of clutter, dirt, dust and pollen.

One of the benefits of a mudroom is that it creates additional storage space–something many homes lack at side and rear entry points. By utilizing cabinets, shelves, rods and hooks you can create an area that encourages the entire family to stay organized. Mudrooms are also great places to store those easy to lose items such as keys, sunglasses and handheld electronic devices.

Mudrooms are most often located at an entry to your home that is not the front door. While building an addition is one great way to achieve the space necessary, it is not the only way. Many first floor laundry rooms can be converted to have a dual purpose. Another way to create the space for a mudroom is to renovate the garage.
