#1 Build a bench that doubles as hideaway storage! Lift up the hinged seat to store stuff inside. It’s nice to have a bench for putting on and taking off shoes, too. Source
#2 Have a designated spot for each member of the family where they can store their backpack, bag, coat, shoes, etc. Source
#3 Make use of upper space by installing cabinets all the way to the ceiling and then adding a rolling ladder for easy access. Source
#4 A place for everything—high cubbies for bins, hooks for jackets, a shelf for backpacks and other miscellaneous items, and low cubbies for shoes. I’m not sure if these are, but it would be cool if the shoe cubbies were pull-out drawers! Source
#5 A shower cleaning station for all those muddy shoes! (They call it the mudroom for a reason…) Source
Have fun transforming the mudroom into a room you love!
