Storage is most important aspect of mudroom furniture, so take advantage of every inch that you can for this purpose.
Wall hooks are mudroom furniture staple and there are many shapes and styles of hooks that go beyond hardware store basics. Choose a style that coordinates with rest of your home. When installing hooks, be sure to leave enough room between each so that even heavy winter coats and thick jackets won’t appear crammed together on wall.
If your mudroom will be housing recreational equipment, you can install special mudroom furniture and shelving for these items. Dedicate a shelf for skates and helmets and incorporate a tall umbrella stand for skis and poles, or have a special built-in storage rack made for these more awkward items.
You can situate a large coir mat in front of the door for wiping off muddy boots and shoes. Spend a little extra on stylish shoe racks that can be placed against the wall. Install a few wall hooks for hanging light jackets or bags. If space permits, incorporate a multi-purpose bench with a drawer below or storage inside. A tall, woven basket in a corner can provide storage for umbrellas.
