Morristown TN Real Estate For Sale - Do You Need a Mudroom?

Do You Need a Mudroom?
What are mudrooms? Typically found in parts of the country where mud, rain or snow are expected, mudrooms help keep the rest of your house looking its best. They are areas, usually around back or side doors, where wet coats and muddy boots are left in order to avoid tracking water and mud throughout the house. If you've thought about creating a mudroom for your home, here are a few things you should know:
Hooks for coats and bags
One way to instantly declutter your house is to install hooks for coat storage. When coats and jackets are thrown over chairs or railings, the house will always look untidy. Hooks also give you and your family a place to hang coats and bags so things don't get lost easily.
Bench for removing shoes
You can stop tracking in mud or getting your floors wet on rainy days if there's a dedicated place to take off your shoes. If you have the room for it, add a bench that makes it easy to sit down and untie shoes so you can take them off before you walk all through the house.
Shoe mats
It's helpful to have a rubber shoe mat. This will keep mud or snow contained so that it's easy to clean up. Just shake the mat outside or wipe it down to keep dirt at bay. It's also a handy place to know where shoes are so that extras can be put away when necessary.
Dog rags
If you have a dog, you know the struggle of keeping mud, rain or snow out of the rest of your house. Keep rags near the door of your mudroom so when you let your dog in after a walk or time in the yard, you can quickly wipe their paws.

Mud rooms are not asked for that often, even with our cold winters. But, when it is already in the home, it is very much appreciated!

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 I would say you are right, they are very easy to appreciate and once you have one you really seem to become dependent on it.  Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

The mudroom seems to be a staple for newer homes and I am sure many people feel that it is necessary to have.

Good morning, Norma... I love the idea of a mudroom, but have never had a home with one.

Nina Hollander, Broker we love our mudroom and have come to be very attached to it.  Can't wait for our new home to be built with a bigger and better mudroom.  Have a fabulous Monday!
