Your entry way is the first thing you see when you walk into your home, and the first thing your visitors see, as well. Many entryways can become cluttered with shoes, jackets, and outdoor wear, making it hard to find anything when you need it and creating an eyesore, as well. Having a storage area for all these items that keeps them organized can save time getting out the door, as well as make your entryway look neat and welcoming.
Some homes are lucky enough to have mudrooms to keep all the outdoor gear. Even when homes, apartments and condos are not equipped with an entire room for these items, a space can still be created to contain and organize all your family’s gear.
Whether it is summer, winter, spring or fall, there are generally items that we need when we go outside. Even in a hallway, you can create a “mudroom” to hang and organize them. With the use of shelves, cubbies and hooks, you can make a wall-anchored area that can beautifully store your accessories.
– Shelves and cabinets. Put toys, leashes, sunglasses and other items that you may need before you leave the house right where you need them.
– Hooks. Have large hooks for jackets, smaller hooks for hats, gloves and keys.
– Cubbies. Create a cubby for every member of the family where they can store their items to make them easy to find. Cubbies on the bottom can be used for shoes and boots.
These make shift mudrooms can be all one piece like an entertainment center, or a combination of separate pieces. Whatever the design, it can make your entry way both less cluttered and useful at the same time.
