In a busy home, a mudroom can be a lifesaver. Outfit one of your own with these great coastal examples. In a busy household, a high-functioning mudroom can be the key to a clean and clutter-free home. And as a point of entry, it can set a fun, beachy tone. Start from the ground up with easy-to-clean flooring that stands up to sandy or wet feet. Smart storage is also essential; Built-in cabinetry with doors gives you the option of stowing some items out of sight. Stylish woven baskets can also corral your things. Give each member of the family their own to keep belongings organized. For grab-and-go ease, hooks are ideal. Place them at varying heights for kids and adults so everyone can reach. Or craft creative hooks out of fun coastal pieces, like this oar that complements cute signage. For easy beach-going, keep seaside essentials in a bright, spiffy wagon that doubles as décor. And don’t forget the importance of a place to sit down. A comfy bench provides a handy spot to take off shoes. Use outdoor fabric for these high-traffic areas that may seat wet, sandy bottoms. Above all, have fun! Beachy stripes, framed photos, and accents like a life preserver add instant personality and seaside style. Get more design inspiration in Coastal Living.
