Get your crazy mudroom organized and efficient! These easy ideas will help you utilize your space effectively.
Mudrooms will always be dumping grounds for just about anything, so they can easily get out of hand. Storage, of course, is key, and the more baskets and bins you can use to contain often-misplaced items like shoes, gloves, and hats, the better. Delegating a bin per person (and putting their photo or initial on each one) is a great way to keep everyone's things separated and accessible. Even sturdy tote bags work as great catch-all; monogram or label them for even more personalization! Hooks or wooden pegs don't take up much wall space and are a must for quickly hanging up everyday coats and jackets. Got room for seating? Choose a bench with storage underneath to maximize your storage space. Add a spot to hold mail, and you’ve cut clutter even more. By having a place for everything, you can turn your mudroom into a sane, useable space!
