Mini Mudroom for a Small Space
I’m so excited to share with you guys my newest small space that helps with a HUGE organization issue… Our Mini Mudroom.
For those of you with large laundry rooms or designated mudrooms, I must admit, I’m a bit jealous! From our garage, we go through the laundry room, but it’s seriously maybe 5 inches wider than the width of the washer and dryer. So no space for shoes/jackets/backpacks/hats there. I’ve tried making space in our dining nook, but it really isn’t large enough with our dining table and 5 chairs.
Those of you with kiddos know that having a space for all the goods to go as close to the entry doorway as possible increases the likelihood that their goods will go where you want them, right? So we have this wall space in the kitchen that I thought might just work marvelously.
An organized home is a happier home. I find that I can think clearer, I’m more productive and it feels more peaceful when my home is organized.
Fashionable and functional storage solutions, can lift your mood, and make a significant style statement. For this space my starting point was the bench. I measured the space before heading to HomeGoods. I wanted to make sure the bench wouldn’t protrude into the walkway between the wall and our kitchen island.
I think I might have even done a little happy dance when I found this bench. It was the perfect length at 40” and was screaming for some cute baskets underneath. These HomeGoods baskets are deep and wide enough to fit my shoes.
I love the soft, fluffy gray throw I found at HomeGoods which complements the gorgeous fall tones pillow (another HomeGoods find).
I love a little industrial vibe in a space. I think it gives your space that feeling like you can use it and it’s not going to break… instantly adding comfort because you’re more relaxed.
So I was thrilled to find these beauties. I hung 2 of them right next to each other to create plenty of storage. Lots of hooks for jackets, backpacks, and purses. The deep storage bins are perfect for hats, scarves, gloves, umbrellas or anything else you want to find easily and need to grab on your way out the door.
So what do you think? Pretty good use of a little space, right? How about you… do you have a little space that could be transformed to solve a big organizational issue?
If you want to create this mini mudroom look yourself, here are some great looks.
Every home needs a mudroom for those items that need to be stored to use when not at home. Umbrellas, boots, car keys, etc. I love my mini mudroom for this reason. Yours is so pretty!
LOVE the mudroom – but can you give the details on the tote bag trimmed in leather hanging in the hallway? I’m in LOVE. Thanks for all the inspiration on your blog.
