And those items often find their way to the floor, furniture, railings and countertops if there is a not a defined space to store them.
Designing a mudroom, like designing a kitchen, begins with focusing on the functional. What does your family need to store when they use the main entrance to the home? How much space is available? Even if you don’t have a dedicated “room” you can create mudroom functionality in an area off your kitchen or a wall in a hallway. That’s why functionality is the first, but certainly, not the only consideration. How many hooks, bins, shelves, benches, seats, rings, etc. will you need and how will they be used? Once basic functionality is addressed, imagine how you can maximize the use, look and feel of the space. We have incorporated the laundry room as part of a mudroom and also have included pantries in our mudroom designs.
