Do you ever find that just inside your door can become a bit of a dumping ground or that your hallway/foyer/utility area always gets filled up with stuff like boots, hats/scarves, bags, shoes, jackets, toys and can often end up looking cluttered/messy/untidy? If your looking for a practical storage area for each of your family members then there’s some great ideas and home inspirational images below for you.
What is a mudroom? Its like a drop zone so somewhere between a cupboard and a utility room and it oozes practicality in a space that you have somewhere to hang your coat/hat up on, or a cupboard to put your wellies in. I love the idea of a practical storage area like in the images below and could so do with something like this.
When designing a mudroom think first about who and what it will be used for and then consider the location that you want to position it in e.g. just inside the front/back door of your home or in a utility area. You could have a space/section in it for each family member. Each space could have hooks for hanging coats and hats, a shelf and perhaps a basket for all those bits and bobs or a boxed shelving area. Another option would be to have a little seating area with a hinged lid to hide stuff away in or just a row of blanket boxes with pretty Seat Cushions on top. I hope that the images below can provide some inspiration if you are thinking of creating a Mudroom or decorating your hallway/utility area.
