Most people don’t realize that there is quite a bit of wasted space in the home. Your garage, attic or even mudroom can become a cluttered, neglected mess. There are so many things you can do to organize and create usable space in those rooms. Take your utility room and add storage to create a functional mudroom.

Perhaps your mudroom is dingy and dull when you walk into your home. Turn that concrete mudroom into a beautiful luxurious and functional room. An entryway or mudroom is most likely the first room someone sees when they enter into your home. You will want to make sure it is finished and inviting.

Create a finished look. Make sure you have proper lighting when you enter into your home. Sometimes adding a beautiful chandelier or hanging light will make it feel elegant and inviting. Finish any flooring or painting to brighten up the space. Since it will get the most traffic, make sure to use materials that are durable and can withstand the use.

Once that has been completed, you will want to add cabinets, benches and lots of storage. This will create a more functional usable space. Adding storage will ensure that you will keep your mudroom organized and clean. Imagine the kids come home from school and shoes, backpacks and coats all end up on the floor. Adding hooks for their coats and shoe rack or bench with storage for all of those items can make your life just a bit easier and clutter free.
