Custom home organization: Planning out a mudroom

Sometimes, just by simply revamping the organization methods you use in your Milwaukee area home, you can gain a sense of serenity knowing that everything is in its right place. While it may be tempting to focus on the rooms where you spend most of your time, like the living room or the kitchen, implementing an organization system in your entryway can really help you regain a sense of order.

You can think of the mudroom as the transition zone between the inside and outside of your home. In some cases, it’s the first room your guests will see, so it’s important to make a great first impression. At Bazaar Home Decorating, we offer a variety of custom home organization solutions, including mudroom lockers that can help you organize this important area of your house. When planning out the functionality and decor of your mudroom, you may want to consider:

Hooks – Particularly if you don’t have a coat closet near your entryway, hooks are ideal for hanging jackets and other grab-and-go items.

Paint – To complete the look of your mudroom, you may want to apply some fresh coats of paint to the walls. For this kind of area, it makes sense to select a paint that’s mildew-resistant and easy to clean.

Seating – A bench is a great addition to any mudroom. When you or your guests are lacing up your boots in the winter, for example, you’ll want somewhere to sit while you get ready to leave the house.

Storage – By including cabinets, baskets and cubbies in your mudroom, you can have plenty of space for gloves, hats and other small items. This kind of solution can also help you keep the appearance of your entryway clean and uncluttered.
