Mudroom Ideas for Your Custom Home

While you’re considering all the possibilities for your dream home, don’t forget to consider a functional and efficient bedroom. A mudroom is a great addition to any home. You have the unique opportunity to include features in your new house that will not only keep it neat but also save you time and money by being more functional.

1. Combining the Mudroom and Laundry Room

A mudroom that doubles up as a laundry area is a space-saver. This is a great way to combine different areas of your home but keep them out of sight of guests. You can save space in your home by using the same space as the general mudroom or laundry room.

2. Make a Coat Room

A coat rack can be used to line a wall in a mudroom. This is a great option as it keeps coats out of the hallways and entryways. This idea can be taken a step further and an enclosed coat area can be added to your mudroom, or at least framed.

3. Closeout Clothes and Other Rarely Used Items

Seasonal items are best stored in mudrooms. You shouldn’t store seasonal items in sheds or garages. These items can be stored in a climate-controlled area, such as a Mudroom.

Winter jackets and bulky winter clothes can take up too much space in small bedrooms. The mudroom is a great place to store bulky winter clothing and jackets. It also helps keep your home clutter-free.

4. Create a Pet Wash Station

You can designate your mudroom as ground zero for pet bathing if you have a pet. This is one of many pet-friendly home design ideas. This approach has many advantages. One of them is that it keeps fur and mud in one central location, and not in the main bathroom.

5. Create a Fully-Functional Storage Space

You can think of ways to make your mudroom more functional and efficient. This is one of the best mudroom organization ideas. You can add shelving or cabinets depending on the items you intend to store.
