A mudroom is more than just a place to shed muddy shoes. Armed with the right elements and plan, this space has far more potential. As with any room in your home, it should have a distinct purpose and place for everything. To create your design, consider the needs of family members, with two legs and four.
Strategically placed by the door, a bench seat begs people to take a seat and remove their muddy boots, leaving the dirt behind.
Sturdy hooks are easier and more accessible than hangers. Hang hooks at varying heights so they are well prepared for everything from kids coats and dog leashes to heavy handbags.
Often times, mudrooms lack square footage so it’s important to make the most of vertical storage. Floor to ceiling solutions become essential. Organizational solutions like a Pantry Door Swing Out Kit fill unused space inside the cabinet door and organize jars, canisters or stash treats for Fido.
CONTAINERS, BASKETS & BINS
Try clear canisters for airtight, space-saving storage. Whether they contain dog biscuits or flour, everything is easily identifiable. Sturdy and useful, baskets and bins also fit well in cabinets and hold heavy items from shoes to sports equipment.
Grab and go—open shelving is perfect for storing frequently used items. Use higher shelves to store bins and boxes for seasonal items such as scarves, gloves or hats. Conceal unsightly items like mops and brooms in cabinets. Flexible shelving, behind cabinet doors, works well for storing occasionally used items.
PULL OUT DRAWERS
Full Extension Drawers make it simple to organize and find small items. For larger items, not just pots and pans, try a Base Pot and PanOrganizer that offers three tiers of organized storage space.
Last, but certainly not least, your mudroom style should blend seamlessly into your home. Waypoint offers a wide variety of cabinet finishes, door cuts, organizational solutions and decorative details that make designing a super stylish, multi-functional mudroom a piece of cake.
