After months of blustery weather and unpredictable snow storms, you might find that your mudroom and entryway are starting to feel the negative side effects of the winter season. Don’t worry! We put together some easy, DIY-friendly tips to help you refresh and rejuvenate your mudroom:
Stop the mess before it can begin.
Invest in quality doormats on both sides of the front door. This will trap outside dirt and grime upon entry and help keep your floor nice and clean.

Get creative with your storage.
Instead of using an Over the Door Shoe Organizer for bulky winter shoes, use the cubbies to hold small items like gloves and mittens. This way you’re never stuck looking for a lost glove!
Create your own DIY drip station.
Tired of snowy boots melting and leaving puddles all over the floor? Create your own DIY shoe drip tray to catch the watery mess.

Give yourself a place to sit and dress.
Getting ready to go outside in the winter time requires some additional outfit planning. Create a place at the front door to sit down when you’re putting on all those bulky layers.
Make your mudroom work harder for you!
Even if you don’t have a closet in your mudroom, establish a storage system that allows you to hang your coats, sort your mail, store your keys, and hide any other miscellaneous clutter.
With an upgraded mudroom and entryway space, the last few months of winter will fly by before you know it! For more lifestyle and organization tips, visit ClosetMaid.com and check out all of our other channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Houzz and Flickr.
