If you’re fed up with an entryway littered with shoes, bags, hats and other random what-nots, it’s time for a well-designed space with custom cabinetry.
It’s easy to declutter and feel organized with storage cabinets or lockers crafted to fit your unique space. Whether you have small or large areas that need help, we have great ideas to enhance your home.
Mudroom Lockers and Wall Units
Tall vertical wall cabinets are ideal for hanging up multiple coats and backpacks while making them easy to grab and go. Open or closed lockers are also a good alternative if you don’t have an entry closet.
Cubbies and Shoe Racks
Outfit these useful spaces with stylish baskets for containing small items like mittens or leave cubbies wide open to fill with shoes, helmets or baseball gloves. Make the shelves stationary or adjustable to accommodate a variety of sizes.
Not only is built-in mudroom seating welcomed for putting on shoes, it adds an element of class to an often overlooked area. Lift top seats with inside storage can be further dressed up with stylish cushions that tie the whole look together.
Walls with Wainscoting
Protect your walls from scuffs and dings in this busy area with attractive wainscoting. There are different types including beadboard, flat panel and raised panel that can be stained or painted to match décor.
Most people pass through mudrooms daily, so one organized spot for notes, calendars, chalkboards and phone charging ports should grab everyone’s attention. As custom cabinet designers, we can help you come up with space-saving ideas that can include:
- Mail storage
- Outlets for charging phones
- Writing desk or countertops
- Cork bulletin boards
- Magnetic chalkboards
- Shelves, drawers and cubbies
- Key hook rack
- End cabinet with storage side, inside door
Pet Wash Station
If you have a large enough area, and a beloved pet, you should consider a dog bath. Incorporate custom cabinetry to store treats, leashes, food and water. A tile tub and backsplash are easy to clean and make your space look like a well-appointed doggie spa.
