Why a Mudroom Is the Perfect Home Addition For Your Family

October 5th, 2020

If you have children or pets at home, you’ve probably had mud or dirt tracked into your house at least a few times. Kids are in and out of the house all day, and will inevitably track some mess in with them. Muddy shoes or wet coats are essential, but can be a hassle if they are left strewn about your kitchen or living room. To combat this issue, many families turn to home remodeling in Bucks County, PA to add a mudroom to their home. 

A mudroom is a secondary entryway to a home, designed to serve as a midway point between your home and the outside world. Mudrooms are often found just off the kitchen or garage of a home, but can be located anywhere to better suit your family’s needs. In order to get the best use out of a mudroom, it should be adjacent to the most used entryway of your family’s home. Mudrooms are multi-purpose and can improve your home life in a number of ways, as listed in this infographic and discussed further below:

Keep Your House Clean 

As we get into the rainy season, muddy shoes will become a more common occurrence. A mudroom can serve as a filter that keeps mud and dirt from being tracked into your interior living space. If you have pets, you know how messy it can get when it rains, and having a mudroom can help you avoid a cleanup disaster. It is an ideal space to dry off your wet dog or cat when they are done playing outside, and can prevent them from bringing any extra mess into your home.  

Organize Your Stuff 

Mudrooms are as useful for storage as they are for mess prevention. Modern mudrooms feature seating for removing boots and shoes and shelving or cubbies for storing them. They are great for people who are always misplacing their jackets, shoes, or hats. Having all your outerwear in one place is very convenient for people who are always on the go. 

Save Your Family Money

Having a mudroom will substantially decrease your cleaning costs and save you time by preventing messes from being made in the first place. Dirt and grit from outside are also abrasive and can damage your flooring over time, a mudroom will minimize the presence of foreign substances in your home and maximize the lifespan of tile or hardwood.  

Mudrooms are multi-purpose, aesthetically pleasing time-savers. A new mudroom can increase the resale value of your home and make it more attractive to prospective buyers.
