Keep clutter to a minimum with a well-organized mudroom.

Coats looped over doors. Dirty boots on the floor. Backpacks strung throughout the house. Yep, we’ve been there. When life dashes ahead, it’s challenging for busy families to keep their belongings in order. The solution? Rethink how you use space with these innovative mudroom ideas. A brand new mudroom will not only keep clutter at bay but will look great while doing it.

Kick-start your next remodeling project with these five inspired mudroom ideas:

1. Match the rest of your home

A well-functioning mudroom doesn’t have to look bland –it can sport just as much style as the rest of the house. Tie in elements from the living area or kitchen, such as warm woods and rustic furniture, to create a coherent and inviting atmosphere when entering the room.

2. Bring the outside in

This mudroom idea plays off the first one, only it incorporates landscaping elements of your home. If your patio or yard has stone or wood elements, why not create a cohesive look in the mudroom too? Use your home’s exterior for inspiration when selecting materials to cover your floors and wall (pictured).

3. Maximize storage

Creative storage space is the name of the game when it comes to decluttering your home. Open lockers with cubby holes provide ample mudroom storage options for boots, coats and other belongings. From closet rods and hooks to shelving and baskets, you can customize the perfect space for your family’s needs. A charging station can even be built into the cubby space to keep your devices all in one place.

4. Always, always have a bench

Benches are essential in mudrooms large and small, as they help families transition to and from their everyday activities. A built-in bench adds function, lasting durability, and beauty to the room, and can be designed and customized for your space by a professional remodeling company.

5. Save a spot for the family pet, too!

Adding a special space for your furry friend is an easy mudroom remodeling idea. Just tuck a cozy nook into the cubby arrangement that's large enough for a pet bed, and you’re set to go. Store leashes, harnesses, toys, and other supplies into nearby cabinets to have on hand for your next walk together.
