A Transition Between Outside And Inside, With A Place For Everything
When the summer months come, do you suddenly find your floors getting dirty and outside grime being found inside the house. Stop all those boots and shoes from obstructing your entryways, it’s time for a mudroom. Main entryways to homes can be dirty, chaotic places, especially with large families with lots of children. Mudroom additions built onto existing homes, most likely in front of a side entrance, create a space to shed and store heavy outdoor clothing and shoes, hats, backpacks, umbrellas, sporting gear, pet leashes – even bicycles and litter boxes! These specially designed home additions can tie together stairs, living rooms, front entrances and porches, and can bring order to the most cluttered areas of the home.
The most elaborate and user-friendly mudrooms function as sitting rooms; a place for family and guests to sit and remove outdoor clothing, gear and shoes, and safely stow them out of the way. They can include stain-resistant furniture like wood or metal benches, and durable flooring material like dark-colored tile to resist scuffing and staining. Adding on a mudroom means no more scrambling to pick up clothes and shoes lying around the front door when guests are coming over. Now there is a place for everything right there in the most accessible space in the house.
Benefits Of Mudroom Additions
Simply put: extra storage space. Additionally, the basic thinking behind a mudroom involves keeping all the dirt in one place. Without boots, shoes, jackets, hats and more coming into the main living area, the rest of the home stays cleaner for longer, and its inhabitants notice a higher level of neatness. Open shelves and cabinets are best, and one can never hang too many low hooks for coats.
Also, Mudrooms Additions are completely customizable, with options to include sinks, laundry facilities and pet areas. The key is to start with a functional building plan considering all the needs of the home; for a useful planning guide, refer to HGTV.com’s “Planning Guide: Mudrooms”.
