How to create storage and mudroom spaces

Even if you have a small entranceway, an attached garage, or hallway you can easily create a storage area, sitting space or mudroom type of entrance for your space.  The first thing you need to decide on is where you want to create your entrance space and next measure it for either building or purchasing furniture, rugs, or storage solutions for the spot.  View Mudroom Furniture

Most hallways are small and cannot there is not much room for storage when entering a doorway.  You can easily resolve this issue by creating your own space for a hall tree with a storage bench or just a bench with added shelving above it and a few coat hooks.  The storage area does not have to be in the immediate hallway, instead consider using a spot right by your entry door to your home inside your garage. That is, if you have an attached garage.

Another idea is to place the storage as close as possible to an entrance way and create a pathway with rugs or tile to the sitting area, bench or storage.

Below are a few ideas to consider when creating the perfect storage or entranceway to your home.
