Mudrooms: Tracking Creative Design in While Leaving Mud Out

The mudroom has been increasing in popularity for the last 20 years. A perfectly designed mudroom will keep mud and dirt outside while adding to the unique design of your home. Don’t settle for a run-of-the-mill mudroom when you can design your own and have us build it for you. Customization is key when it comes to homeownership. Here are several things to keep in mind when you design your mudroom:

  • Shelving– The ability to neatly organize items like scarves, coats, snowsuits, hats, shoes, and other pieces of clothing is imperative. Open shelving or closed cabinetry are both great options
  • Storage– Use the mudroom to store things used in outdoor activities and sports. This is a great place to store sports equipment such as hockey or football gear.
  • Seating– Benches are a wonderful way to add seating and storage. Individual chairs may be needed if there isn’t enough space to build built-in benches for seating.
  • Washer and Dryer– Combine mudroom with laundry room for added convenience or install a small laundry area specifically for muddy clothing. This is the perfect spot to install laundry facilities because it aids in keeping the mud out of other areas of your home.
  • Sink– A sink can be a great feature for washing dirty hands or presoaking super-dirty or grass-stained clothing. The idea of the mudroom is to contain all of the dirt in one spot so you don’t have to worry about mud and dirt being tracked through the rest of the home.
  • Shower– Go a step further and include a shower so that dirty children can get clean again before running through the house. Include a pet washing hose for keeping the dog clean after it has been in the yard playing with the children.
  • Toilet– When you gotta go… Children don’t understand the importance of taking shoes off before they run in to go to the bathroom when they’re busy playing outside. They want to run in, relieve themselves, run back out. Create a mudroom that may be closed off from the rest of the home to allow quick trips to the toilet without worrying about the rest of the home getting dirty.
  • Design– A mudroom doesn’t have to be all… mud. It can also be a key design feature in your home. The sky is the limit from custom cabinetry and tile or stonework. Remember, this will most likely become your family’s main entry into your home.
