Mudrooms are dedicated spaces that are used to corral your family’s shoes, jackets, bags, and more as they enter the house. Some mudrooms also include a washer and dryer, utility sink, or even a pet-washing station! While mudrooms are great, it’s easy for them to get out of control without a proper organization system. Installing cabinets in your mudroom is an easy way to help contain the mess. Check out ways that you can utilize cabinets in your mudroom:
Assigning a specific cabinet or closet area to each family member allows them to have a home base for their belongings. That way when it comes time to leave the house you won’t be spending unnecessary time looking for a misplaced jacket or a backpack. It can also hold family members accountable for keeping their space neat.
Like personalized cabinets, large open cubby areas equipped with hooks can be used for everyday storage. Smaller cubby areas are also a very popular mudroom design and can be used as a catch-all storage space. In small cubbies, consider purchasing baskets to hide the clutter.
Keeping frequently worn shoes in the mudroom ensures that the shoes will be in one place and ready to go when you’re heading outside. It can also remind family members to take off their shoes upon entering the house, so they won’t track dirt everywhere. Shoe shelving is often placed beneath a cabinet, cubby, or bench. To make it easier to access shoes (especially those that get pushed to the back), install sliding shelves.
Make use of all of the available space in your mudroom by installing upper cabinets to store off-season or infrequently used items. If your mudroom is home to your washer and dryer, use upper cabinets to hold detergent, dryer sheets, and stain removal products. Similarly, if your mudroom contains a pet-washing station, install cabinets to hold your shampoo, brush, and towels.
Tall cabinets installed in the mudroom can serve multiple purposes. With shelves, they can be used to store extra food, paper products, and miscellaneous household items like batteries or flashlights. Without shelves, tall cabinets are a great place for storing mops, brooms, and other cleaning supplies. These can be particularly effective if your mud room does double-duty as a laundry room, too!
