Keeping the dirt at bay


  • No question – the outside is dirtier than the inside of your home – and you want to keep it that way.
  • So when the family – especially those kids – come from the outside in, they bring forth the “dirtiness” that makes your home messy and unclean.
  • So setting up a buffer area where shoes can be stacked – dirty clothes can be disgarded – and kids’ stuff can be stored – can keep the home nice and tidy.
  • That is where a mudroom comes into play – and in your mudroom are built-in mud room cabinets – perfect storage space for shoes, sports and play clothes, and school backpacks and other stuff.
  • Do’t foreget a sitting bench The mud room bench is a must – a place where the family can sit to take off or put on their shoes. In fact, all of the family shoes can be stored here. No need to track dirty shoes inside the home.

Mudroom enclave with bath area


  • The mudroom is an enclave, staging area built next to the outside yard and garage – and it has a door access to the other areas of the home.
  • This particular mudroom has a bathroom attached – smart idea for kids (and adults) that need to disrupt their play or work to go to the bathroom.
  • That avoids them from having to take off their shoes to take care of personal business.
  • Make sure the floor is waterproof The flooring option should be a smooth vinyl. A flooring type that can take melting snow, wet shoes, mud and everything imaginable that comes from the outside. You want the floor to have a smooth surface for easy clean-up and mopping.

The mighty bench with bins


  • We spoke about the mudroom bench earlier – but if you don’t have a special area to become an exclusive mudroom, you could set up a bench in your garage or inside your home.
  • The bench can function as your mini-mudroom – meaning, having a house rule where all shoes must be removed before entering the home.
  • Underneath the bench can be pull-out bins where those shoes can be stored.
  • Within older homes Many new home constructions are adding mudrooms into their floor plans. But for older homes, no such area exists. So you may need to convert a small area of the home – like the garage or laundry room – into a mini-mudroom. Perhaps some mud room cabinets can be fitted on the wall – or attach a wall or chair bench with storage bins.

Mudroom plus


  • Now here is an example of the mud-plus room – includes a shower and kitchen.
  • The shower of course is to clean-up from a hard day at work or play – instead of dragging your dirty self to the inside bath area – just jump in to get yourself clean.
  • As for the kitchen – it might be the outdoor kitchen that is kept inside. Something that works for climate areas that are really wet and rainy – not good for exposed, outdoor kitchens.
  • But the mudroom stuff is missing This room is lacking mud room cabinets, benches, storage bins, clothes bin, etc. But there is room to install these mudroom features for household management.
