A mud room is a room that you step into and which you will definitely need some storage units to store your clothes, shoes, umbrellas, keys, bags and many other things. The problem is that a dirt room or entrance area is often small and you just can’t put all of that storage furniture in there. Also, your entryway should look more or less stylish to make an impression, as this is the first thing you and your guests see home. How can you do all of this in this little mud room? Let’s take a look at storage ideas that dissolve the entrance and hide all unnecessary things.
Mudroom and entrance area lockers
A locker is a small, usually narrow, storage compartment of varying heights and levels. Width and depth are usually standard measurements, although non-standard sizes are occasionally found. A mudroom locker is the most popular and convenient storage idea because it looks stylish and can hold a lot of things. I don’t mean just one closet, I’m talking about an entire locker unit that can include multiple closets, shelves and ceilings. The combination is up to you. Even if your hallway is tiny, you can always order a small locker that will save space and hide your belongings.
Built-in mudroom solutions
If your mud room is tiny, go for built-in ideas: built-in shelves, ceilings and counters, racks and benches. They won’t take up that much space, but they will provide enough space.
Open shelves and racks
Open shelves are another great idea for small mud flaps and entryways. Open shelves don’t look that bulky and have space for a lot of things, from scarves and umbrellas to clothes and boots. Mix them up any way you like, make a colorful rack for fun and you will love it!
This is a must for any mud room! Even if your dirt space is big enough, don’t waste this convenient storage space and organize shoe storage there. In fact, for another season, a storage bench can hold anything from boots and shoes to various accessories.
In conclusion, I would like to say that all of these solutions can be mixed and matched at will. Open shelves with lockers, storage benches with built-in solutions, racks and lockers, etc. – take a look at your dirty space and decide what suits you best. Do not forget that bright colors will visually expand the small space. So if your entryway is tiny, stick with those hues.
