Living in Michigan can be a challenge with the constant changing of seasons allowing for a surplus of outdoor wear at hand. Along with the extra gear comes the appearance of muddy water puddles on the floor which are invisible until you step in them. Consider the benefits of having a mudroom in the floor plan of your home when buying, building or remodeling, especially if you have children.
A mudroom, it is one of the seemingly non-essential rooms in a home; that is until you no longer have one. It serves as a catch-all for the summer and winter gear that travels to and from your home and doubles as a barrier from dirt and snow that would other wise be tracked throughout your home.
Mudrooms also provide additional storage space for coats, shoes and outdoor accessories. They are typically located by the entrance that is most frequently used, either near the foyer or by an exterior entrance that has high foot traffic. So whether you are trying to avoid wet socks or attempting to keep the extra dirt out of the rest of your home, a mudroom is a great asset to any home.

Mudrooms can also be used as a home for your furry four-legged friends to have their very own space.
