As the days get shorter, and the climate colder, we get more and more inquiries about adding mudrooms to homes. In fact, we have a saying in our office “it always starts with the mudroom” – because when clients first contact us about a home renovation this is frequently their first priority. It never ceases to amaze us that most New England homes lack this essential space. Though not a particularly “sexy” project, everyone gets excited by the idea of a better organized, less cluttered spot for boots, coats, backpacks and sporting equipment. Even a very small space can be extremely functional, and less of an eye-sore, with some well planned built-ins and multi-function pieces – like a bench with drawers under for shoe storage, or storage pullouts built under a staircase.
