Ten things I LOVE about my mudroom
1. Cubbies. Each kid has a labeled cubby with hooks for jackets, baskets for hats and gloves and a space on the bottom for a backpack.
2. Black. It hides the dirt (well disguises it). I have repainted these Pottery Barn cubbies a few times and I have never regretted getting them in black.
3. Hooks near the door. Keys, leashes, and reusable bags hung right there where you need them.
4. Baskets. Shoes, hats, gloves, scarves, small umbrellas all have a place.
These next six ideas may be more difficult to incorporate but give it a shot.
5. Rollouts. Dead space turned into major storage.
6. Sunken space. I am lucky enough that my mudroom is down two steps from the rest of the house and it really helps keep the dirt contained in that room.
7. Door(s) to close off the mudroom from the rest of the house. Being able to close off the mudroom is amazing when company comes or you just don’t want to look at it right now.
8. Slop sink. All paint brushes, craft items, dirty shoes, and more are washed in here.
9. Located at the door that we use every day. A mudroom far away from the door that you actually walk in usually doesn’t get used. Sad but true.
10. Hidden kitty litter or recycle area. We had this door (with a hole) built in for our kitty litter bin. Now that we don’t have a cat we use it to hold (and hide) our recycle bin. Yes it is small and we empty it daily, but it works for us.
DM or email me if you would like to organize your own mudroom! They really can be a lifesaver for a busy family! We can get it done before the New Year.
