Let’s get down to business. I’ll tell you some of my favorite must haves to create the best mudroom storage bench and mudroom makeover ideas.

These 13 tips and Must-have items are some that I have researched hours and have found basically every mudroom I love has  almost all of these items. And it’s honestly hard to decide what to have in a mudroom. All we really think about is storage, storage, storage. But an aesthetically pleasing room is just as important as the functionality it has.

I am all about a beautiful room that gives me the maximum amount of space and storage. So you will die over each and every gorgeous mudroom storage bench in this post. Because let’s be real for a minute. I feel like the most important part of a mudroom is a mudroom storage bench. The reason why I feel this way is because Tyson works outside all year round and has his dirty work boots. The last thing I want is him dragging mud through my entire house. It’s just super convenient to have a bench right by the door he can quickly take off any dirty work items.

Some of the links on my blog are affiliate links, meaning no additional cost to you, I earn a commission if you purchase through the links. Thanks for supporting my dream!

So here we go! You can click on each item and see where to purchase it.

  • Coat hooks – Of course I am putting this on the list. Because obviously you have to have a place for coats, backpacks, purses, and really anything else that you would naturally hang up to keep off the floor.
  • Storage Closet – This is one I am putting on the list because most of the mudrooms I love have a closet you open that has shelves inside. It’s nice to hide away items or put baskets and totes on the shelves.
  • Chandelier – The right lighting and chandelier in a room make all the difference. You can see some of my favorite farmhouse lights here.
  • Decor Baskets –  I love the idea of each kid having their own basket to put items in. It can be easily accessed to throw something in so items aren’t forgotten when walking out the door.
  • Mudroom Storage Bench/Hall Tree – As I mentioned above this is my favorite thing in a mudroom. When you have messy kids, and a messy husband this is a must.

Keep on readin’ 😉

  • Decor Pillows – You can see 50 of my favorite farmhouse throw pillows here!
  • Personalized Items – I really love personalizing every room of your home. I’ve seen mudrooms with each child’s initial above their coat hook, or their name in cursive/wood letters. And I think it’s so fun. I think it adds character when you make your home personal.
  • Ground Cubby – So this is so nice because I’ve seen them get used for shoes for easy access. Super convenient. And who doesn’t love that!
  • Mat For Entryway – I love a cute door mat that’s also perfect to wipe those wet shoes off on.
  • Large Wire Basket On Ground – this wasn’t one I saw in every mudroom, but it’s an idea I loved. Because I saw an umbrella in it. What better place to have your umbrella than right next to the door.
  • Shelving – So this is a must for sure. I saw a million different types of shelves. Some were above the coat hooks, some were part of the hall tree. You will just have to decide what you like.
  • Wall Decorations -It’s a no brainer for me to have wall decor in my mudroom. But of course I am going to include it so you don’t forget to print your favorite family photos and frame them. Or a cute wood farmhouse sign would look great, or of course a little hanger with small hooks for keys.

Bonus ITEM

  • Dog Kennel Decor or Built In – Lastly I had to include this bonus item. Because I’ve seen dog kennel/dog crate built ins. And dang do I love them. The look of it is adorable. I’ve seen chicken wire kennels that look so much better than your normal plastic or metal crate.

You can see some examples of each item in the photos below. These photos are from my favorite interior design website HOUZZ. If you aren’t familiar with their home gallery or the store go get busy. You will be on this site for hours!!!! I always am. You can find some of the most amazing interior decorators work here. And it’s super inspiring.




So you can see in each of the mudrooms above there are some of the examples I’ve included for my must-haves. I love how much storage is in each mudroom. Hidden cabinets and storage bins are the best.
