It’s certainly evident that creating outdoor rooms is becoming the latest lifestyle movement. With television shows such as “Yard Crashers,” “Take it Outside” and “The Outdoor Room with Jamie Durie,” we are looking at our outdoor spaces as extensions of our homes. It really makes sense to invest in a great outdoor space because it may add to the value to your property as well as give you and your family a better way to spend time together outside.
Mudrooms provide a great place to drop off not only umbrellas, jackets and muddy boots but also all those outdoor allergens and pesticides that are easily transferred by your clothes and shoes directly into your home. Having a mudroom that separates the outside from the indoors is a necessary barrier when you are dealing with pollutants and toxins. Cleaner air quality and less cleaning products consumed is a huge benefit to your health and pocket book.

You rarely hear people speak of mudrooms anymore. Of course they still exist, its just people would rather use a more hygienic term like laundry room, foyer, or an entry way. Nevertheless, mudrooms are a must have in every home. The very idea of having an extra space to hide away muddy shoes, extra shopping bags, sports equipment and those soggy rain coats just sounds heavenly for those of us who hate clutter in the rest of the house.
