1. Shelves with hooks
These are essential to keeping a mudroom organized. You need lots of hooks to hang not only coats but also purses, car keys, and backpacks. Shelves are necessary to store shoes and outdoor accessories. Having a place for everything means that everything in your mudroom is less likely to be out of place.
2. Tan or brown floor
There’s no way around it: your mudroom floor is going to get dirty. You can minimize the appearance of dirt and mud by using a tan or brown floor so whatever’s tracked in from outside blends right in to the floor.
3. Bench or stool
It can be tough taking shoes off standing up. Make things a little easier by adding somewhere to sit! Add either a built-in or freestanding bench, or for something more compact add a few stools to the items you store in your mudroom.
