Mud Room Organization System Replaces Traditional Closet

Closet Works
Keeping track of all the coats, shoes, backpacks and specialty gear for several small children can be an organizational challenge all by itself. Combine that with busy schedules and various activities like ballet lessons, little league, art classes, swim team, soccer and music, and the benefits of a great mud room organization system like this one becomes invaluable. Rather than an enclosed closet, separate cubbies for each family member ensures that everyone has a place to store their coats and backpacks. The look is neat and tidy, but easier than a traditional closet with doors, making it more likely to be used by everyone — including children. Hooks rather than hangers are easier for children and help prevent jackets from being to left on the floor. A shoe shelf beneath each cubby keeps all the footwear in order so that no one ever ends up searching for a missing shoe when they're in a hurry. a drawer above the shoe shelf keeps mittens, gloves and small items handy. A shelf with basket above each coat cubby is great for keys, wallets and small items that might otherwise become lost. The cabinets above hold gear that is out-of-season or infrequently used. An additional shoe cupboard that spans from floor to ceiling offers a place to keep boots and extra shoes. White shaker style cabinet doors with oil rubbed bronze hardware presents a simple, clean appearance to organize the clutter, while bead board panels at the back of the coat cubbies adds a casual, country charm.

We all have a disparate collection of boots, coats, umbrellas and bags that need a spot to reside. The mudroom is the organized, stylish answer to all of that clutter. Whether you have a distinct transition space in your home or you simply want to add function to your entry, consider the following mudroom ideas to get you started.

1. Transform a Hallway

While mudrooms were originally back entrances separate from the front door, you can use any entry in a similar way. Simply add wall hooks or shelves to your hall and you’ll enjoy the same organizational benefits.

2. Add a Bench

Another way to add ease and function to any ordinary entryway is to add a mudroom bench. This can be the perfect spot for taking shoes on and off, or simply placing bags and coats. If you’ve got the space, opt for a stately hall tree, which includes a bench and shelves or wall hooks built together.

3. Use the Laundry Room

In many homes, the garage entrance goes straight through the laundry room, making it the perfect space for a de facto mudroom. Simply add in accessible storage wherever you can: think open shelves, wicker baskets or wall hooks.

4. Keep It in the Garage

If you often enter your home through the garage, try adding a shoe bench, door mat or even built-in shelving so you can keep the clutter out of your home entirely.

5. Go Bold with Tile

Don’t forget to have a little fun with your mudroom design. Brightly colored or bold mosaic tile can demarcate the space and create a warm and welcoming mood.

6. Choose an Accent Color

Adding color and decor to your walls is another great way to bring character to the space. For example, you might install white wainscoting or shiplap on the lower half of your walls, and paint the upper half blue.

7. Hang a Mirror

If you’re looking for mudroom ideas for small spaces, try hanging a decorative wall mirror. The space will feel bigger and you’ll have a spot to quickly check your look before heading out.

8. Make Use of Bins

Visually appealing bins are the glue behind mudroom organization, as they’ll give you space to toss dirty shoes or miscellaneous gear without seeing the clutter. Choose bins made of metal, wicker or wood to complement your space.
