Mudrooms and Lockers
First impressions mean a lot. Your mudroom or entry room to your home, school or office can make a difference in the way you feel about your space and your guests fell about it. Is your entryway, foyer, coat closet or mudroom in disarray? Anyone who lives in an area that has cold winters knows the struggle involved in organizing hats, mittens, umbrellas, coats and boots.
Don't save the front coat closet just for guests. You can make good use out of it for daily activity with a little organization. Organizing can be as simple as adding a few accessories to your entry space. If you have the space, a storage wall can be instrumental in not just organizing hats and shoes, but school and work items that need to be picked up quickly when you are on your way out the door. You may want a space for each member of the family to put their jackets, sports equipment and other supplies.
