MUST-HAVES FOR YOUR MUDROOM / by Keith Moehle

As we get deeper into the fall and winter seasons, we start to realize how little space we have for all our cold-weather gear.

Some might say that the holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year but we think a little differently. We say those cool and crisp temperatures of the fall and winter seasons are the most wonderful time of year. Think about it! Who doesn’t love getting all cozied up in scarfs, hats, and jackets? But when we come home from being out in the cool weather, we begin to realize how much gear we have and how little space we have to store everything. 

That is precisely why mudrooms have started to become more trendy in the last few years in Texas. Mudrooms create a dedicated space for all the belongings you need as you are running out the door or coming home from a long day. Not to mention they’re also great for storing all your kids' sports gear from in between practices and games.  

Remodeling is supposed to enhance your way of living by increasing the functionality and beauty of your home. Whether you choose to convert a room in your current home or add an addition to make room for a mudroom, it’s sure to make your life easier!

Here are a few things that we recommend you include in a mudroom. These tips will allow you to maximize the space in your mudroom, regardless of the size.

  • Plenty of Coat Hooks: This is essential! You need places to hang all of your jackets, keys, purses & your children’s backpacks so nothing will get misplaced!

  • Storage & Seating: You will be taking off your shoes when you walk in the house, so it’s a good idea to include built-in seating and storage for your family’s shoes.

  • Easily Cleaned Surfaces: This room is meant to get dirty... that’s why it’s called a mudroom! So make sure your selections offer easy cleanups!

  • Cubbies: If you have children this will be a lifesaver! You can add a cubby for each child, so everything they need is right where it should be. You can even make an extra cubby for yourself while you're at it!

A mudroom will add value to your home and make your life much easier since you have everything you need in one place before you start your day Who wouldn't love that?! If you think your mudroom needs some updating, give my team a call at 210-680-5626
