Mudroom lockers are a storage solution that can be used to keep dirty shoes and other items out of the way. They can also be a great space for storing school hats, backpacks and sporting equipment. A mudroom is a common feature in new homes. It is the first place the family enters after coming in from the garage. By arranging a locker system, your family can help prevent clutter and keep the house clean.
These units are available in a wide range of styles and finishes. You can find free-standing units that don't require assembly, as well as built-in units that can be personalized to fit your family's needs.
The best mudroom lockers make the most of your space, while keeping your home organized and clean. These storage units are a great way to hold dirty clothes, coats and other items. For extra space, consider adding a shelving system to your mudroom. This can be done by attaching plywood back panels to the cabinets and using wood glue to secure them. If you're using 1 1/2'' finish nails to fasten the plywood to the cabinet, use DAP Plastic Wood X to fill in any holes or gaps.
If you have a small mudroom, try using wall storage. Some mudroom lockers come with a shoe storage bench, which can be used to store your shoes. Open mudroom lockers are also a good option, as they can accommodate odd-shaped objects.
In addition to organizing your mudroom, a locker system can encourage family members to store clean laundry in the right place. You can find a mudroom locker in a variety of colors to match your decor. Choosing a light color can make your mudroom locker bright and cheerful, while a dark finish can hide scuff marks.
There are two types of mudroom lockers: the open cubby style and the undivided locker. With an open cubby, you need at least two feet of space between each pair of cubbies. But for an undivided locker, you can fit more than one pair of shoes. Many lockers also include a bench, which makes it easier to take off your shoes. An additional benefit of an open design is that it allows you to store odd-shaped objects, such as gardening tools or picture frames.
Mudroom lockers are also useful for storing dirty items such as muddy shoes and raincoats. Keeping your mudroom tidy and organized can help save you time and frustration. And, if you have young kids, a mudroom is an ideal space for them to learn organizational skills. Your mudroom can even be integrated with a laundry room for an efficient and easy mudroom/laundry room setup.
Mudroom lockers can be installed either inside the house or outside. To make the most of your mudroom, choose a locker that has a convenient bench and coat racks. Coat racks can be attached to the top of the mudroom locker. Hanging coats will also keep your locker clean.
