Mudroom in Home

Past entry in our Photo Contest from E. Darland.

A Mudroom is a must-have in the colder climates where a dedicated space for changing out of wet shoes and clothes is advantageous.

Mudrooms are also great for storing cold weather gear, boots, and more.

They are also popular in the south where a defined space is needed for rainy weather gear and outdoor items.

Mudrooms provide an organized and neat space for items that are not needed in the main living area. They also provided extra storage for specialized items. No more looking for your hat, coat and outdoor gear before heading out!

Often times the mudroom is part of the laundry room which is convenient for washing wet, muddy clothes. Whether your mudroom is a larger space with cubbies,  cabinets, benches, hooks, shelves, and baskets or a simple place to store boots and rain gear, Van Dyke’s has the items you need to create a “mudroom” space.

Here are some things to consider for your new mudroom.

Coat hooks are the first item to consider. Van Dyke’s offers over 100 styles and sizes of hooks in single, double, triple, and adjustable models including utility hooks, valet hooks, and harness hooks. From rustic to contemporary, hooks are great for hanging up jackets and coats, scarfs, snow suits, swim suits, towels, and robes.

Shelving is one of the most practical and versatile home accessories. Shelves are perfect for organizing your outdoor attire, sports equipment, lawn items, tools, laundry items, towels, and more.

Van Dyke’s has over 400 styles of shelf brackets including wood, metal, urethane, and rustic brackets.

You will need seating for changing out of wet boots. Van Dyke’s has a nice selection of chair and table legs and posts. Protect the corners of your walls with our hard-to-find corner guards.

Keep your closets organized with our closet storage solutions. These unique items include hooks, rods and brackets, baskets, hampers, shoe racks, and wardrobe lifts. Everything will have its defined space making for improved organization. No more clutter!

Instead of a traditional closet door, install a rolling barn door. It saves space and adds a unique design element to the room. Van Dyke’s offers rolling door hardware kits for those who already have a barn style door, and all-inclusive kits that have every needed to build your own rolling door.

Mudroom Hooks and Seat

Good lighting is essential and Van Dyke’s has flush mount, semi-flush, and pendant lights, as well as, table and floor lamps. Illuminate the entry or patio with beautiful outdoor lighting.
