Making the Most of Your Mudroom: When it Rains, Pour on the Style

Mud Room

Guys and gals, it’s going to rain pretty much straight from today to Thursday, so if you haven’t organized your mudroom, it’s time to take a good, long look at this important, versatile space inside your home.

When it rains like this, I am so grateful for my mudroom, which gives me a place for my umbrella to dry out, to shake off my wellies, and to throw my shirt in the dryer between errands. Of course, keeping organized is key — a messy mudroom isn’t a very functional mudroom, is it?

Stainless steel and beadboard are all over my mudroom, which has a separate entrance to my home — a great idea to keep from trampling leaves and mud all over the house. A great mat to wipe your feet is important, too. Here are a few mudrooms on Houzz.com that will make your mouth water, and hopefully send you running for the Container Store!
