Mudroom Cubbies As Storage
A mudroom is the little room that separates the outdoors from the indoors. Mudroom cubbies are useful for storing items up and out of the way in a mudroom, and they give people a place to put things down when they come in from the outdoors. Shoe racks and boot trays are some of the most common types of mud room storage solutions; this allows people to take their shoes off and leave them in a place where they can dry without getting mud or water all over the floor. Mudroom cubbies and closets for hanging coats and other types of outerwear, such as scarves are also common. A cubby for storing umbrellas might also be useful so they are easy to find.
Some create a system of mudroom cubbies and dividers for the mud room, so each family member has his or her own cubby. For instance, a row of small closet-type cubbies might be installed with a shoe rack underneath, and a smaller shelf on top. This way, each person can take his or her coat off and hang it in his own cubby, put shoes underneath, and additional items such as hats and scarves on top. Children might also hang their backpacks in there at the end of the day.
