Creature Comforts: The Best Mudroom

The mighty mudroom can organize all manner of gear, while doubling as spaces for chores as diverse as doing laundry and potting plants. What’s more, it acts as an intermediary between grimy outside and the clean inside.

Here’s how to get the most out of your mudroom—whether you’re adding a new one or reworking the one you already have:

1. Be Realistic

If you just need enough space to stow a few coats and a laptop bag, a tidy row of hooks behind the entry door will suffice. For families with kids, you may need something more spacious, with shelves and additional storage.

2. Choose the Right Kind of Flooring

This can play a role in how the mudroom looks and functions over the long haul. Its highly trafficked floors, for instance, should be easy to mop and able to take a beating.

3. Determine the Best Seating Options

Seating, whether built-in or freestanding, should be sized for all members of the house, ensuring comfortable shoe changing for adults and children.
