Unlike other homes, we are not blessed with a mudroom. When we enter from the garage, the laundry room also functions as a mudroom.
So I contracted my sister to help me install some shelvings to make a corner in the laundry room function as a "mud-corner".
I bought 5 pieces of wood shelving from a home store, some brackets and screws.
And this is what I now have in our mud-corner.
I measured from the floor to the first shelf to accommodate my riding boots.
Then on the next shelves, I measured The Mr.'s shoes to fit in.
Then I placed the flip flops in a canvas bins and baskets to coral them.
The kids's shoes went into a stand-alone shoe shelves that I bought long time ago. This is perfect to accommodate a pair of shoes in those small slots. (ehem I also have my sandals in there just because it fits in just fine)
On the wall by the door, I moved the wall coat rack higher where The Mr. and I can reach. Then I placed command hooks below where the kids can hang their coats on their height level.
I am very happy every time I go inside the laundry room, it may not be picture-perfect for everyone but for me it is very functional and it's maximizing the space.
We used to use shoe hangers here which we've had for a long time and If you want to see it, just click here.
Now we have a mud-corner. This space is a constant and on-going improvement and for now, this space makes me happy.
