No Problem NO MUDROOM?
Not everyone has a separate mudroom, but that doesn’t mean you can’t utilize the same design ideas in your home. Here are 5 ways to add function to your home without a mudroom.
1. KITCHEN STORAGE. If you find that mudroom items like mail and car keys end up in the kitchen, consider devoting several cabinets or drawers into dedicated storage for the items that need a specific home.
2. CONVERT A CLOSET. If you have a closet near your garage or front door, turn it into a makeshift mudroom with a bench, hooks for coats and shelves for other essential items. 3. USE THE LAUNDRY ROOM. Reconfigure your laundry room to act as a mudroom too. Bring in some organizing cubes and add a charging station for phones and tablets.
4. GARAGE FOCUS. The area just inside your garage can also be a good mudroom space. Repurpose old lockers or crates for your outerwear and hang a row of hooks for backpacks and laptop bags. 5. WARDROBE FUNCTION. Purchase a closed wardrobe you can use to store your essentials as an inexpensive, spacesaving mudroom alternative.
