Shoes & Boots
While we might not get as much snow as the northeast, it can still be wet and muddy. Putting a mat right inside your doorway will help you get rid of some of the stuff that may be stuck to your shoes. You can even go one step further… A great idea is to use a cooling rack placed on top of a waterproof tray. This will let whatever snow and mud might be on your shoes drip off into a tray that you can dump out! No more wet socks for you!
Hats & Gloves
There are a few different options for storing hats and gloves! The fun thing about smaller items is you can choose baskets, bins, etc to match your style. If you have a number of hats and gloves, or a few people living in your home, simply label which container belongs to who. These could be put on shelves near your door, in your mudroom, or even hung up on the wall.
There are many ways to hang your coats, whether on hooks, on a rack, a stand, etc. Just be sure whatever hook or rack your use can withstand the weight of heavy or wet jackets. If your coats are wet, hanging them on a clothing line in your mudroom is ideal. Just like with the hats and gloves, you can choose whatever works best for you and your style. If you’re going to be hanging wet clothes near or on your walls, be wary that it can damage their finish. Using a piece of cork board as a buffer between your coats and the wall is a good way to avoid any issues.
