The entryway is usually seen by all and used by guests, but the mudroom is a home’s secondary entrance. It is a room that many older homes don’t have, and many of us wish they would have. The mud room is a hardworking space. Even the tiniest of mudrooms help keeping the house clean and organized and the family efficient. The mudroom can be a highly functional room or it can also be a dumping ground if it isn’t outfitted with the right features. How you design your mudroom is after all your choice but here are some good ideas for a mud room were Pioneer Cedar Living can help:
- A place to sit down
To have a place to sit in the mud room is a must have feature. When coming home, the first thing you want to do before entering the rest of your house is sit down and take off your shoes or boots. The Pioneer cedar benches come with a back rest or without. For double-duty we can build a boot tray underneath, or a flip-up seat for extra concealed storage.
- Storage space
The ultimate mudroom feature is a set of open cubbies. Have one for each member of your family so everyone has their own designated storage space. Provide low storage for shoes, hooks for coats, and high storage for seasonal items. Your storage will look great in Western Red Cedar shelving and cubbies and your mud room will also smell amazing.
- A space to hang clothes
Wet clothing stuffed into a closet ends up making the closet and the rest of its contents less than fresh smelling. Pioneer Cedar Living can build you a small open closet with plenty of hooks for coats, jackets, back packs and more.
Mudrooms are really about storage and transition – a place to put things that otherwise might be spread out in several other places and a means to transition from the outside environment into the house. Pioneer Cedar Living Log Furniture out of Western Red Cedar is not only beautiful to look at it is also very durable and long lasting. Let us help you make your mudroom great and functional.
