Once a Screened Porch, Now a Mudroom

An overview of all the storage options in this efficient mudroom.

Maybe someday we'll need all the shelves for storage, but for now we also have some display space.

Double-decker shelves under the bench fit all our boots and shoes.

Even Moxie's leash has a spot.

Charging station and still more storage.

Space for coats, hats, folding chairs, electronics.

The mudroom provides direct access to the front, the deck, and the main living areas.

Welcome! A sheltering roof and a place to scrape your boots at the mudroom entry.

A spot to hang your keys and check your hair.

View from the deck back to the main entry.

Before. The screened porch didn't even fit a table and chairs. More importantly, it was falling off the house!

We created a nice tidy mudroom at the side entry to our home. The compact and efficient storage easily handles shoes, coats, gloves, sports equipment, extra leaves for our table, folding chairs, a charging station for our power tools, toys, and more. The in-floor heat keeps our shoes warm and is a very welcoming comfort on cold winter days.
