Wash Off Mud & Dirt Install a shower basin and floor drain in your entry to collect wet footwear. Add a wall faucet and flexible hose attachment for rinsing off mud and debris. (It's also handy for a quick pet bath.) And don't forget to include a fold-down bench for putting on shoes or stacking a few cleanup towels.
Mudroom with rinsing station for boots and shoes
Functionality in an entryway is important for handling our busy schedules. Baskets with each family member’s name for holding scarves, mittens and other small items; plenty of hooks for coats, purses, and bags; drawers and table top space for keys, wallets, and loose change; and a built in bench for stopping to put on shoes.
