Room 1. Mudrooms
These helpful buffer zones allow an orderly exit—and reentry—with a place for everything.
Open hooks for airing out damp outerwear
Shelves with bins for corralling accessories
A seat for pulling footwear on and off
Resilient surfaces that dirt can’t hurt
Room 2: Floor-to-Ceiling Cubbies
This one-wall mudroom can handle a season’s worth of athletic gear and outerwear.
Tip: Cheer up a utilitarian space with a colorful indoor-outdoor runner. To clean it, just shake it out or hose it down.
Room 3: Open Storage
Ample 16-inch-deep cubbies mean each family member has places to stash footwear, sports equipment, toys, and more.
Room 4: Neat Catchalls
Metal bins, fabric-lined baskets, and color-coded boxes organize small items and store off-season goods.
Room 5: Locker Lined Stair Wall
A furniture-grade storage unit mounted alongside stairs turns a front foyer into a mini mudroom.
