One thing I long for in our home is a larger space I can officially call a “mudroom”. We have a very small closet near our back entry and we use it as a place to kick off our shoes or hang up coats, but it would be really nice to have a unique space dedicated solely to the task of corralling all of our shoes, boots, and outerwear each day.
A true mudroom is a dream come true for many families with children enrolled in sports or involved in the daily activities of coming and going from school. What are the essentials for any multitasking mudroom space? Here are five of my favorites.
Bins and Baskets in Lockers or Cubbies. A labeled basket and locker or cubby specified for each family member is a great way to keep it all organized! Avoid the frantic search for jackets, shoes, or backpacks when everyone has a space of their own.
Handy Hooks for Hanging. Hooks maximize the use of vertical wall space and provide grab and go convenience for when you’re ready to head out the door.
