Mudrooms are all the rave these days. Even if you don’t live in colder climates, mudrooms are being built in new homes as a standard feature.
My challenge for you this week is to create a dedicated mudroom “space” in your home, where you can hang coats, & store shoes, gloves, keys and bags. If you don’t have a mudroom, choose from one of the examples below.
- Entry wall
- Laundry Room
- Hooks, etc.
- Bench or cubbies
- Dedicated space close to the door
- A place for your keys & cell phones
Use baskets to store cold weather accessories, pet stuff, and extra shoes.
Our home was built with a “technology cabinet”. We charge our cell phones & Ipads here. We made copies of all the keys for the house & store them here as well.
Dog accessories hang right by the door for easy access.
The technology cabinet.
Keep copies of all keys in your mudroom. If a family member needs one, they know where to find them, even if you are not home.
These hooks are for guests.
