Even though it was a beautiful,sunny 58 degree day this past Sunday in Minneapolis, I’ve been hearing whispers that it’s going to snow later this week. It’s a uniquely Minnesota thing to be outside wearing a t-shirt while thinking in your head about digging out your snow gear to make sure your kids have a matching pair of gloves and a jacket that fits later in the week.
Bringing out all of the gear required for frolicking in a winter wonderland can definitely put a strain on your coat room/mud room/entry. Snow gear is numerous, bulky and space consuming. Thinking creatively about your space can help keep everything in its place and keep the chaos at bay. Consider installing drawers, bins, cubbies and shelves to keep each family member’s gear together and tucked out of site. Having an organization system can also avoid lost mittens, misplaced hats and wet boots that never had the chance to dry.
A search for entry organization on Houzz or Pinterest will yield you all kinds of inspiration. Once you’ve been fully inspired, contact Closets For Life for a free in-home consultation where we will turn your ideas into a design that perfectly meets your needs and tames all your winter gear. Bring on the snow!
While a dog kennel may be a nice spot for Fido to lounge when owners are away, kennels are not a home décor friendly item. It is hard to find a space where the kennel is not an eye sore and not interrupting the flow of a home. However, we have a wonderful solution!
Built-In Dog Kennel for Fido
We recently completed a mudroom organization system with built in spots for two kennels. The built in kennel slots are designed with a bit of space to allow air flow (we don’t want Fido to get too warm) while keeping the kennels tucked away and out of sight. Situated under a custom coat cabinet, the mudroom location allows the homeowners to conveniently tuck the puppies away as they are leaving the house.

September likely means back to school time if you are a family with school age kids. This typically means making sure your kids have the right school supplies, buying some school clothes and thinking about your family’s before and after school routine.
Ground zero for getting to and from school in most homes is the mudroom/entry. This is where kids store their backpack, jackets, shoes and more. It’s also where the dreaded ‘I can’t find my hat!’ and ‘Where is my backpack?’ hang-ups can arise. A well organized mudroom or entry space helps kids stay organized and get out the door on time. When running out the door to catch a bus, knowing exactly where their shoes, backpack and jacket are is a big help. When coming home, an organized layout will ensure items don’t get left in a heap on the floor (a mom can hope right?) until the next day.
Whether you have a spacious mudroom or no mudroom at all, there are many ways you can create an organized space that will have your child earning an A+ in their school routine. A custom organization system, whether big or small, designed specifically to meet your needs and space will help ensure a successful and less stressful start to the school year.
