Mudrooms have transitioned from their initial entryway design to dedicated storage rooms. Functioning as a hold for things that would otherwise clutter up the house, they help keep your home organized.
Residential Concerns, one of the top local roofing contractors, offers some creative mudroom design ideas here.
Storage and Utility Room
When designing a mudroom, be clear from the outset what you want to use it for. Is it only for storing shoes and coats or would you like to use it as a utility room? Things around your house that don’t have a home but could use one are perfect in a mudroom–like bikes. Add wall-mounted racks or a pulley system for bike storage. You can also use the room for a potting shed by adding a workbench and some shed storage.
In a typical farmhouse, a mudroom is usually placed by the back door. For most homes, the front door is the main entryway. Add a front porch to avoid dirty trainers and school bags sweeping through the house. An existing utility room can double up as a mudroom. Turn to a dependable roof replacement company like Residential Concerns for any home renovation project.
What to include in your mudroom will depend on its size and what you need from it. Some essentials you may want to include in it are shoe racks, coat racks, sink, bike storage and laundry room storage.
Traffic through a mudroom should be one of your first considerations. You should be able to pass through quickly with little obstruction between the doors. You also should have a door separating your mudroom from the main house to keep cold air out.
