It’s hard to keep that rain, mud and even snow outside instead of all over your floor. Why not create a lovely transition room that can also simplify household chores and store your treasures? Take that dank room with one hot light bulb and turn it into a stylish mudroom.
A good mudroom is used everyday and should be organized to make your chores as simple as possible. The best flooring is hard and durable, resistant to water damage and not slippery when wet. High efficiency washers and dryers can be set into custom-built cabinets with a countertop to hide your appliances and create a workspace.
Storage space is key. You’ll want lots of cabinets and drawers for miscellaneous things, as well as seasonal items like gloves and backpacks. If you can’t install a ton of cabinets, think of other options. Build an enclave with hooks and a shelving system. Think about a padded bench that also holds shoes and boots. Make sure that whatever you put in won’t be ruined by any wet items or clothing.
Don’t forget to make your mudroom fun! Be creative and make it a welcoming space for you and your guests. Since this will most likely be a smaller space, don’t be afraid to use bold colors and funky designs.
