One of the best ways to keep your home effortlessly clean and organized throughout the day is with the use of a mudroom. A mudroom is the little space between your door and your living area. Some homes have lots of space where others are minimal but with the use of custom storage units, any home can have a mudroom. Whether you’re thinking about having a mudroom built or you already have one, here’s how to get the most out of your mudroom.
Utilize Every Space
No matter how big your mudroom is, the only way to keep it fully organized is to utilize every space available. From cubbies to cabinets, every space or hook should be used to maximize storage capacity. Baskets are also helpful for keeping items organized and off the floor.
Take a Seat
Chicagoland Home Products offers cubbies that double as seats and storage units. The best part about having a seat in your mudroom is having the ability to sit down and take your shoes off. Most people throw their shoes on the floor when they first enter their home but having the ability to remove your shoes from a seated position gives you a moment to relax and place your shoes where they belong. Thus, keeping your foyer clean and organized in the process.
Give Everything A Proper Place
The final tip on how to get the most out of your mudroom and probably the most important is making sure that everything has a proper place. Just like your closet, when you have a plan for how you want to organize your clothes, everything else falls into place. Allocate each space for a specific item in your mudroom. Providing storage for coats, shoes, umbrellas, and other miscellaneous items will make keeping the area clean a whole lot easier.
