I love having a mudroom. Shoes and boots come off at the door and the room is used for what it is intended – containing the mud. If you have a mud or utility room you know that it serves a great purpose, but like everything else, needs a little organization to keep it running smoothly. Our mudroom will undergo a couple minor changes later this year, but for now here are a couple organizing tricks I use. As you’ll see this really is a cleaning closet…
I hang cleaners that I don’t use all the time on the wire shelving to keep it out of my cleaning bucket, but still handy. Label, label – it makes everything look better and I know what’s in the containers above my head. I love using ‘s’ hooks to hang tools, mops, and brooms.
Not sure what an ‘s’ hook is? They are about 3o cents each and you can find them at any hardware store in a variety of sizes.
I keep a bucket in the closet for floor pads to be washed and wash them every week or so.
I printed and laminated these labels. Then I cut them out and attached them with double-stick velcro. It’s a great solution – that way I can change the labels around if I want to.
Want to make some mudroom or utility room labels too? Here’s a free printable label set for you!
