Never underestimate the importance of an organized entrance. This mudroom or back entry is one of the most crucial rooms in the house and its even more crucial that it is organized and efficient. Simple Spaces here in Calgary agreed to tackle our mudroom and the entire process taught me a lot about making sure a space is well designed and functional. There is so much energy and time that goes into a mudroom. It is the first place we walk into and the last place we leave. There has to be a space for everything. Simple Spaces gets life with families and designed the perfect space. Here are some of the my favourite elements of the new design.
Drawers: Perfect for hiding all the hats, toques and mitts. I love that we don’t have to look at all the clutter of winter clothing! Each kids has their own drawer to keep their things out of sight and believe it or not, it increases the odds everything will actually make it to the drawer!
Sturdy Hooks: There isn’t a backpack or a coat that is too heavy for these hooks. They’ll be able to take lots of weight and things will hang nicely because they are perfectly spaced. Plus, kids are more likely to hang something on a hook versus a hanger.
Hanging Rods: For me, I love being able to see what coats are in the rotation and these hanging rods are the perfect fit for this space. There is room for longer coats and shorter coats plus, look at all that space above and below!
Cupboard Doors: I love a clean look and having doors to cover the shelves is a perfect solution. We still get the use of all the shelving spaces but can hide everything we don’t want out in plain view. It looks clean and smart!
Julie was our talented designer at Simple Spaces and she really did a fantastic job of implimenting our requirements into the design. Everything is manufactured here in Calgary and the entire mudroom only took a matter of hours to put together. Now it’s got me thinking about all the other spaces in my home that need the Simple Spaces touch!
Here are some of the finishing elements that I know you’ll ask about. Be sure to contact Simple Spaces in Calgary here to set up an appointment with any of their designers. You won’t regret it!
