Mudroom Set up & Family Storage - Justin Gray Homes

Mudroom Set up & Family Storage

A mudroom is a great space to store your family’s seasonal wear. Typically situated at the rear of your home, you can make the most of your mudroom by conveniently setting it up to ensure your family gets in and out of the home with ease. Here are some tips and tricks to set up the mudroom in your home.

Storage Cubbies

Each mudroom in a Justin Gray Home is set up to efficiently store your family’s seasonal wear. Whether located at the top of your mudroom storage, cubbies are a great place for outerwear. The best use of your cubbies can come from purchasing storage bins or baskets. We recommend labeling each bin and organizing your items from there. Some ideas for your bins include: toques, hats, scarves, mittens/gloves, and even pet gear such as leashes, booties or jackets. Lower cubbies are great for placing shoes, keeping them out of the walkway.

Alternatively, you can organize the bins to have one for each member of the family to store their personal items. Using bins not only keeps your space looking clean and reduces clutter keeping your seasonal wear out of sight, you can also express your design style by selecting bins or baskets that suit your home interior. 

Hang It Up 

Your built-in hooks are great for everyday wear such as coats, purses and backpacks. They are ideal for those grab and go items you use daily. By assigning a hook for each family member, it can provide that added efficiency for your morning routine. For those less commonly used jackets, your entry closet offers sufficient storage.

Take a Seat

Your lower storage cubbies double as a built-in bench! Take a seat to comfortably tie or remove your shoes. For style and comfort, add a couple of throw pillows on your bench.
