A highly recommended item that all mudrooms or utility rooms should employ is to have a coat rack. There are free standing coats racks and wall mounted coat racks available for the purpose of hanging coats and storing umbrellas. The wall mounted coat rack takes up less room and can provide space for a number of coats. The advantage of a free standing version is that you can use them for an umbrella stand as well. The umbrellas normally fit into the middle of the stand and at the base there is usually a drip tray for the water. This keeps the floor free from any water that may drip from a wet umbrella. The free standing coat rack can also be used in other areas of the home, such as near the entrance way.

1. Give each family member a space: limit the amount each person can keep there (number of shoes, bags, etc.). Locker-like cubbies, milk crates or laundry baskets are great and can work well depending on the space. Allow only items that are used frequently and for that season in this area. Have adjustable shelves and hooks to grow with your child. Think about what is reachable for your child when deciding where to hang hooks and put baskets. Square cubbies are great for kids' extra-curricular supplies and equipment; even shallow cubbies are helpful for stashing things away.

How to design for so many functions? Home improvement stores and specialty stores sell DIY supplies or a designer can create ideas for storage and organization. Before beginning assess the existing space. Who uses the area and what do they bring in and need on a daily basis? Start with accurate measurements and then draw the area to scale. The entryway or mudroom is a very busy room of any home and can often be overlooked. In some homes, the mudroom can be the first room that visitors will see. It doesn't take a lot of time or money to add a few personal touches that will take the word mud right out of your exquisite entryway room!!

5.Think up, way up. Build a custom cabinet up to the ceiling to maximize storage of out of season items higher up. If you are working with the closet you have, use labeled bins and boxes for seldom used or out of season items and store higher up. Consider adding an extra shelf above the existing ones. Could you double rod the closet - adults coats on the top - children's below. If you do not have a front closet, you must be particularly selective about what you keep in your entrance. Think seasonal - what do I really need right now? Keep things for this time of year and store the rest elsewhere in your house.

The mudroom is a full-featured permanent part of new home construction and remodeling. It is estimated that 3% of the home floor space dedicates its use to the mudroom. A full room, while nice, isn't essential to making it work for you. What is essential is a design to store stuff like: backpacks and briefcases, hats and gloves, sports equipment and small toys, dog leashes and towels to clean dirty feet, messages, schedules, appointments.

Add a mudroom bench to provide a comfortable sitting place to remove or store muddy boots. It is most important furniture to keep your house clean. Choose a bench that matches the decor of your house. You can add storage to bench by placing bins, baskets or installing cabinets. Make sure that it don't have any sharp edges and its height is comfortable for all family members. Standing in the middle between the outdoors and the indoors, a mudroom is a useful room to have. Often connected to a rear or side door, typically the mudroom itself is not the actual way in to the house. Generally, a mudroom is often the location in which every person throws their boots and hopefully hangs up their coats, especially in winter time.

This would also be a great place to get your child's name in a font you choose and have it cut as an entryway wall decal and use this space to mark off their height on the wall and you watch them grow through the years, it can be a nice piece of history in your family. If you want to keep this forever and think you might move, simply put a painted board between the two shelves decorate it with the vinyl motif that you like and then it can removed and taken to your new place or it can go with your child when they get their own place.

To further utilize the space within the mudroom or utility room, you could mount mudroom lockers onto the wall. These lockers are essentially cupboards with some sort of lock attached to the door. Cleaning products could be stored securely within the lockers, preventing children from gaining access to poisonous products. You could also use the space for towels or linen if you wish.
