Eight Mudroom Ideas For Clean Colorado Homes


Winter in Denver can be pretty messy. Snow, slush, mud, rain- you name it, and it has probably been tracked into your home. And of course, there is all that winter gear- snowboats, heavy jackets, hats, gloves, etc.

Winter is when a great mudroom really proves its usefulness. A carefully planned, well-executed mudroom can transform winter's chaos into orderly neatness, stylishly taming all of that gear and slush.

Sounds pretty great, right? Here are eight mudroom ideas to get you started:

  • Use flooring that wipes clean. Stone floors, treated wood floors, cement flooring, and rubber matting are all great options.
  • Provide multiple storage options. Different items are stored in different ways, so make sure that your mudroom includes shelves, drawers, and hooks.
  • Provide seating. Give your family a place to sit down and take off their boots. This could be anything from a simple bench to multiple chairs.  
  • Add visual interest with bold paint. Get creative with the limited wall space in your mudroom. Paint the back of your shelves in a bold color to really make them pop. 
  • Give each member of your family their own section. The key to great organization is making sure that everyone's stuff has a home. If you have four family members, install four hooks and cubbies in your mudroom. Encourage your kids to keep their area neat and clean. 
  • Add a peg rail for ski gear- All of that Colorado mountain gear needs a home. Mount a simple peg rail to store skis, snowboards, and snowshoes.
  • Use roll-away components to save space. If you do not have a lot of space, look for roll-away seating that can be stored underneath your shelving. Roll-away bins and baskets are also a great option. 
  • Label, label, label- Use storebought labels or make your own with pretty scrapbooking paper. Label different bins for things like hats, gloves, leashes, keys, etc.
