We love mud rooms, also called “drop zones”, so much we have tried to add them to most of our plans.
These spaces are usually between the garage and the kitchen and are ideal for keeping the daily clutter at bay. Book bags, purses and coats can be quickly hung, add baskets for storage, add a key hanger to the wall…but no more dirty shoes traipsing through your home and all right where you come and go.
We love them so much that quite a few of our plans have them
Book bag drop, wet shoes and umbrellas – all in near the kitchen but out of sight
Ask about adding cubbies or a valet area with bead boards and hooks – our mudrooms have different standards and options based on the community
