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
Mount a stack basket on the wall or place it on the floor to hold small items like gloves and mittens. This way you’re never stuck looking for a lost glove! Bonus: The ventilated wire will help any damp fabric dry more quickly.

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.
Cube storage that doubles as a bench is an attractive and affordable way to add functionality to your mudroom, no matter how big or small it is.
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.
A standalone DIY storage system like ClosetMaid SpaceCreations can simulate an entryway closet and fulfill your family’s needs perfectly.
