Prepare Your Home for Winter Wear with a Well-Designed Mudroom

By Bryan Slowick | Dec 15, 2015

When the temperature outside drops and snow begins to fall, your entryway clutter inevitably increases. Are you tired of searching for that missing mitten or tripping over a bulky bag of rock salt? The solution is a mudroom designed to meet your family’s needs.

Regardless of the size of your space, a little organization can make a huge impact on your home’s efficiency. A well-designed entryway keeps winter gear close-at-hand but neatly stored out of the way, ensuring your wintertime comings and goings are a breeze.

Create a welcoming mudroom with these smart storage solutions:

- Bins and baskets corral cold-weather apparel such as hats, gloves, and scarves.
- Wall hooks permit wet coats and bags to air-dry properly.
- Bench seating or a folding stool is helpful for putting on or taking off boots.
- Trays for drippy footwear help keep floors clean.
- Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry stylishly stores sports equipment and snow removal tools.
- An airtight container safely stores ice melts.
