Any homeowner with a mudroom will tell you that it is one of the most useful and convenient rooms in the house during these incredibly busy months especially when we have no clue when all this snow and cold weather will come to an end! So let’s prepare for those late season snowstorms that love to surprise us in these last few months of winter so that we can truly optimize our household space. Here are three reasons why a mudroom addition is essential to your home.
Great for Storage: Something every homeowner seems to always need is more storage in their house. And since winter is a time where we accumulate the most stuff whether it be gifts, clothing, shoes, shovels, etc. we are in desperate need of a place to put it all. Installing a mudroom will optimize the space of your home by providing you with convenient storage space so you can be as organized and efficient as possible during these hectic months. It will also allow your family, especially if you have kids or frequent guests, storage space to put boots, jackets, and other articles of winter clothing.
Keeps the House Cleaner: When everything has its place, the entire house is much cleaner, which makes for a happy homeowner! A mudroom will guarantee you a much more pristine household since everything that is normally spewed across the floor and furniture as people trample their way in will be neatly placed in their designated spots in the mudroom. It also saves you from breaking out the mop every day to wipe up the muck, mud, and melted snow that kids and guests tend to track all across your nice floors. A mudroom will allow you to contain all of the clutter into one space as opposed to the rest of your house.
Provides More Comfort for Guests: Having a mudroom also provides an entryway where both guests and family can completely unload before settling into your home. When there is no middle ground between the outside of your home and the main living space, guests can feel overwhelmed and out of place if there is not a more informal area to drop coats, bags, shoes, etc. It’s time to please your guests and yourself by considering the storage, cleanliness, and comfort bonuses behind adding a mudroom to your home!
