With the rise in popularity of Outdoor Living Spaces, it seems natural a Mudroom would be the next feature increasing in popularity. When spending all this time outside;  a room in where you can remove dirty clothes and shoes becomes a valuable space. The Mudroom serves as more than a place to remove muddy shoes, it also serves as a place to store the kids backpacks, hang coats, dog leashes, or store gardening tools. A Mudroom is a great way to help keep the house clean and free from clutter. Fortunately, Mudrooms don’t have to take up a lot of space, they can combine with other spaces like the Laundry Room.
