Say goodbye to messy floors by installing a mudroom!

It’s not uncommon to have people walk around the house with their shoes on. As the seasons change and winter rolls into town, tracking snow, mud or slush becomes a real concern. Even with secluding the outside debris to your front doorway, your home can still look uninviting and be a hassle to clean every day. Thankfully, Abbey Design Center offers an alternative solution to clomping your dirty boots outside on the welcome mat: the mudroom!

 

What is a mudroom?

While the name might not be pretty, that doesn’t mean the room itself can’t be! A mudroom is a second entrance to your home; a small and efficient space that helps keep the house clean, organized, and free of clutter. It’s a room that not many homes have, but numerous people dream of having, as it allows for an efficient and beneficial way of keeping your house cozy and clean all year round.

Mudrooms are used for much more than dealing with grime or soot from the outside. They usually come furnished with hooks, racks, cubbies and lockers. That way, people resist the urge to throw their coats, scarves, or umbrellas scattered throughout your hallways. They are the perfect place to help keep your children’s belongings organized as well.  Each child can have their own hook and cubby to keep their homework and their coats, hats, and boots in an organized place so they will also always know where to find their important items when getting ready for school.  Benches are a common feature as well, allowing people to take off their shoes in comfort. This also helps reduce foot traffic and outside contaminants on your flooring. Some mudrooms even function as a space to install your washer and dryer, allowing for a grander layout within the rest of your home!

 

Do mudrooms have other uses?
