Create the Perfect Mudroom

By Irisinteriors @IrisHoulihan

It’s still snowing in New Jersey and spring showers are soon to follow, which makes it difficult to keep muddy, wet footprints at bay. A well-designed mudroom is my favorite solution. Whether the space is its own separate room or a corner outfitted with storage, a mudroom not only keeps floors clean, it’s also an excellent way to stay organized. Need some inspiration?

Very family and pet-friendly. The bulletin board and chalkboard ensure nothing is forgotten when running out of the house.

Don’t let any space go to waste. Turn an under stairs storage area into a mudroom with bins, hooks and a bench.
