Love this! Each family member has a place for all their stuff. Especially great for kids' shoes, coats, backpacks, hats, gloves, etc, etc. Organizations Ideas, Mudrooms, Garage, Mud Rooms, Laundry Rooms, Rooms Ideas, House, Diy Projects, Kid
As a Realtor I often show houses that have this awkward space in side the front door - too small for a living room - but not the best place for an office - this idea of using it as a make-shift mud room totally solves that problem. Love the built in cubbies, too. Flashback to elementary school but in a good way.
I love stand alone storage units for coats, backpacks and purses! I could use one at every door in our house.
My hall is the same width as my front door. And my front door was made to measure because it's 3 inches narrower than a normal door. But one day I will have a hall like this!
A great way to use a little area by your entrayway. Love the repurposed mini dresser (store off weather gloves, hats, scarves, doggie clothes...) and the shoe storage. May want to do in black though since Travis' work shoes are always dirty. Or, if do white can put in that snazzy drawer paper in the bottom...
Install a shower basin and floor drain in your mudroom 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.
Locker Room We moved this wall 3 feet into the garage to claim more space for this formerly cramped back entry. Custom locker units fit perfectly into the bumped-out space. A modern leaf-pattern wallpaper adds designer style and sets the lively color scheme in motion. Baskets above and drawers below alternate holding seasonal items, and the deep bench is a handy drop zone or convenient place to sit when slipping on or off shoes.
Mudroom: Organization Domination According to Lori Leistico, organization expert and designer for KraftMaid, the key to conquering clutter is to give everything a place. The most common problem she sees is finding spots for mail, financial records, electronic gadgets, shoes, recycling, and kids' stuff. Leistico conquered these trouble areas by organizing this mudroom into zones.
