Narrow mudroom is salvation, especially if you live in a four-season climate with months of snow, mud and rain that you do not want to be recorded. But when the narrow mudroom the required capacity, you must be creative. A cluttered entryway will spread to the rest of the house. A blocked doorway is very ominous, not to mention inconvenient and annoying. Increase too narrow mudroom with clever use of furniture and fixtures.
Everything should serve as storage in a narrow mudroom. Use a single piece of furniture that one room determinations, with a bench for sitting and lacing sneakers and cubbies below to stow these sneakers when you get home. Inside the bench is room for some out-of-season badminton rackets or ice skates. Behind the bench hang a mirror. Shelves as high as the roof can store hats and gloves on lower shelves and rarely needed items up high.
Install a row of hooks in the mirror to hang jackets and coats. Tuck and umbrella stand in the corner, and if there is space, more hooks for backpacks and reusable shopping bags and a basket of keys. All-in-one pieces for an entry or mudroom can sometimes be found in the country, antique shops. Use a variety of old school or industrial cabinets for mudroom storage. If there is space, devote to each family member to keep track of personal equipment. Wire baskets on top of the cabinets can hold sports equipment.
