When building or renovating your new custom home in Edmonton, the most significant advantage is that you can add unique rooms that make your everyday life more manageable. One of the trendiest options due to its functionality is the mudroom, which is basically a secondary entrance to your home that serves as a transition between the outdoors and the indoors.

It can be a hallway or a whole room to keep footwear, wet clothes, sports gear, among many other items. Many homeowners are not sure about the importance of a mudroom, but it has proven to be a must, especially for large families. Its biggest advantage? It prevents dirt and clutter from invading your home. If you are considering the idea of a new custom mudroom, take a look at these three essentials Edmonton Custom Home Builders has prepared for you to create the perfect mudroom.

Plenty of Storage for Your Edmonton home

Even a small mudroom can contribute to the overall organization of your dream home. It serves as a storage area for those items that you are most likely to take with you every time you go out or that you come home with. For this space to be functional and efficient, it is essential that you consider adding plenty of storage elements. Edmonton home builders suggest you include hooks, racks, shelves, lockers and baskets for keeping coats, backpacks, hats, scarves, umbrellas, shoes, smartphones, keys, hats, and even laundry. You can also consider adding a closet for out-of-season wares or sports equipment.

Durable Materials for The Ideal Mudroom

The whole point of a mudroom is to make your life easier. So this is a space that should be stylish but easy to maintain. Since the mudroom is a high traffic space, include in your custom home design durable materials for both floor and furniture. For flooring, go for an easy to clean option such as stone, tile, vinyl or concrete that will resist water and dirt. When it comes to furniture, a must for any mudroom is a resistant bench. It will help you to put on and take off your shoes and to place essential items or packages you don't want to forget before leaving home. At Edmonton Custom Home Builders, we can help you to choose between a variety of durable bench options that can also include hidden storage compartments.  

Elements that Fit your Lifestyle

In our experience as builders in Edmonton, the most critical aspect of a mudroom is that it reflects your daily life. For example, if you are a constant gardener, a useful sink for quick cleaning can be a good idea. And if you have kids, why not including a chores blackboard? Another idea for keeping your dream home efficient is using colour coding baskets or personalized lockers for each member of the family. And a nice final touch can be a  message board for phone numbers, relevant messages, and reminders.
