Every home needs a spot where you can corral clutter and drop off your coat, bags, and muddy shoes. That’s the reason why we have a mudroom. A mudroom is a necessity as it acts as a transition point in your home; the transition from the outdoors to the indoors. A mudroom is supposed to get dirty; it’s a space for stripping off wet, sweaty or dirty clothing and shoes so you don’t have to drag them through the rest of your home.
Today a mudroom is situated near the primary entrance way off the family rooms. Due to the constant family traffic, the area has a tendency to be repository of clothes, coats, shoes, umbrellas, books bags and various other articles like sports equipment and rock collections to name a few. The entrance way area also collects a lot of dirt. Designing a mudroom takes the multipurpose function of the room into consideration and provides for its many uses.
