Mudroom Storage and Organization

I hope you’re feeling just as motivated to get organized as I am, because I’m not much of a content planner, but more of a doer and sharer. I’ve been working on little organization projects throughout our home to create more function and less clutter and chaos. So far, so good, thanks to lots of rain. I believe that great organization starts in the entry of your home, so I have started by creating mudroom storage. I often like to use pieces of furniture that fit our needs rather than built in storage so that we can easily adapt as our needs change. I’ll be sharing quick and easy organization tips throughout the month, but if you’re ready to get started now, you can find an array of past projects here.

Mudroom storage tips and ideas

 

I found this small antique chest at an estate sale in our neighborhood last year – it fit everything we needed for our small mudroom. It’s somewhat narrow, allowing for easy pass through, has a great solid marble top to catch miscellaneous items, and a few drawers to stow away seasonal essentials. I added a small tray for keys, cell phones, Chris’ wallet and change. It’s great to have a go to spot for those items that always seems to get misplaced.

I added a bowl in the top drawer for Chris’ running gear, but you’ll notice the drawer is otherwise empty. It’s my dirty little secret. Actually, my clean secret! I like to keep the drawer free of clutter so I can hide away miscellaneous papers {aka junk}, mail, etc when we’re expecting guests.

We use the second drawer to store hats and gloves – they’re easily accessible when you’re running out the door, but hidden from sight.

Finally, the lower drawer stores Chris’ hat, bug spray and sunscreen. Again, an easy location to grab them on the go and to put them away when you return home. Determining how you use a space and what you need to store before you get started will go a long way. It keeps the bulk of clutter from the rest of your home. As you can see, this little chest provides ample mudroom storage without a lot of effort.

More details on our mudroom coming soon, I’m off to work on my next project. Did I mention Chris loves surprises?
