It is spring, and that means it’s a great time to renew and refresh the interior of your home. If you have a mudroom, you might be unhappy with how it works or how it looks right. But since this room is a useful place, you should do everything you can to help it realize its full potential. Here are some recommendations for how to do just that.
Increase the Storage Space
The mudroom can be an extra space to store pantry items that can’t fit into your kitchen. It can also double as a laundry room and as a place to keep coats, shoes, hats, and umbrellas after coming in from the garage. All of these reasons count as examples of why you should increase the amount of storage space that you have available.
Pick Materials That Last
Be sure to pick materials that last. This design principle matters when you remodel other parts of your home – the kitchen, the bathroom, the dining room, and the foyer- so why would you leave your mudroom out of the mix? All of the rugs, hooks, shelves, cabinet pulls, and mats should be made of materials that last, especially since rain and mud are going to be more of a concern now that spring is here.
Infuse It with Style
The mudroom doesn’t have to be boring, spartan, or utilitarian. In fact, you can infuse it with style. Benches make great places to sit down and put on or take off your shoes. Adding some pillows and blankets can make it more comfortable and more elegant. Try adding some mirrors that help bring more light into the room and allow you to admire your reflection or decide if you need to comb your hair or take off that scarf before meeting the day, whether or not you need to go anywhere.
Consider Your Lifestyle
The next factor you need to have in mind is what your lifestyle is like these days. What routine does your family follow, even if it has been modified to fit in with the current circumstances where social distancing is the new normal.
Expansion is Good
Sometimes you need to make sure your mudroom is bigger. Well, that shouldn’t be a problem, either!
