Unless you have an indoor racetrack, the mud room could very well be the most-fast paced room in your home. It’s a high-speed traffic area. A conduit from your home to the rest of your day.
If every day begins in your walk-in closet, the daily commute begins in your mud room. That includes kids who have to catch the bus. Before you even get in the car, do you really want to deal with a traffic jam caused by a poorly organized mud room with the predictable “I can’t find my (fill in the blank)”?
Because the mud room is so fast-paced, it can go from highly organized to highly chaotic in a matter of minutes. That’s why the right storage solution is so critical. Closet POSSIBLE designs and installs custom mud room organization systems throughout Mercer County, Middlesex County, Hunterdon County, Somerset County and Bucks County.
Think about the things you grab on the way out each day. A jacket, shoes, sunglasses, car keys and a briefcase or backpack. On a winter day, a coat, hat, scarf and gloves. Maybe a pair of snow boots. On a rainy day, a slicker and an umbrella. Depending on what your plans are for the day, you might need a hat, sunscreen, or sports gear. And don’t forget the outgoing mail.
With a custom mud room, you’ll know exactly where everything is so you can keep the flow of traffic moving.
The average mud room has a bunch of hooks, a bench, and maybe a shelf. Shoes are typically thrown under the bench. That doesn’t even scratch the surface of what’s possible. Why not bring all the organizational features of your master walk-in to your mud room?
Cubbies and shelves for grab-and-go items. Cabinets for items you need every once in a while. Hooks for light jackets and backpacks. Perhaps a small rod for heavier garments. Sliding shelves for shoes. A dedicated space for sorting mail. Your custom mud room’s design and features depend on your family’s preferences and lifestyle.
Your custom mud room also makes it easier to shed the mess instead of tracking it into the house. Mud and moisture on rainy or snowy days. Filthy shoes and clothes after a soccer game. Wet, sandy swimsuits and towels after a day at the beach. We can design your custom mudroom in a way that stops the mess in its tracks.
Of course, high-quality materials are critical when you and your belongings are moving at a frenetic pace. We only use 3/4-inch engineered wood, furniture-grade melamine that’s easy to clean, and edge banding that’s twice as thick as the industry standard so it won’t fade, chip or peel. Instead of buying from California, get the same products and better service from a local, family-owned company for a significantly lower price. One cost covers everything.
Don’t get stuck in the mud room. Call us to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation in your home or our Pennington, NJ showroom. And don’t forget, we also design and install walk-in closets, pantry storage and so much more. We look forward to helping you imagine what’s possible in a custom mud room.
