Briefcase, handbag, coats, shoes, leashes, sports equipment, and backpacks. This is what can be found scattered in the front hall of most homes. With the first day of spring fast approaching, add umbrellas and muddy boots into the mix. Not everyone has room to create the perfect, large mudroom for all that is required to be stored when returning home, but with a little creativity, the right pieces of furniture, and some organization, any area can be turned into a more beautiful space.
Here’s a must-have list for creating a mudroom or more organized front hall:
- Shoe racks
- Tall baskets (or umbrella stands)
- Hooks or coat rack
If space is a challenge, try thinking outside the box by creating a mudroom-style closet. Here’s a creative approach to lacking space from a design blogger. She removed the door from a closet, added a bench, hooks, baskets, and even kept a hanging area.
