Renewing your Mudroom and Kitchen

A homeowner seeks the help of experts to make her clutter disappear. She is too busy carrying out her duties as a mom while at the same time, doing her responsibilities as a business owner. Because of this, she has been neglecting the pileup that has been building at home. Her house is so cluttered that more often than not, she cannot locate things anymore and ends up having to purchase a replacement for those things she can no longer find.

On the other hand, her kitchen is in the same condition as her mudroom. It is no longer able to function as a kitchen since it so cramped up most especially since that is where she stores all the finds that she gets from the flea-market. It is so cluttered that it is no longer a surprise to find the vitamins for the kids together with their crayons. The bowls that she uses for mixing is placed right next to the wheels of her kids’ skateboard.

The experts plan in taking the laundry area to the family room. This way, the mudroom will be freed up and can be easily organized. In the kitchen, they also plan to convert the coat closet where kitchen items can be stored, like that of a pantry. The goal here is to make the rooms soothing.

The carpet was removed from the mudroom and the floor that it used to cover was instead painted. A cubby space was also setup where the supplies can be stored, coats to be hanged and the like.

A new room intended for the laundry area was set up just right by their family room. For storage, they took one of the cabinets that the family has not been using that much and had that mounted. It was then setup in such a way that the drawers were now on the bottom for convenience. Bins were also put in the area to help the family sort their whites from their colored laundry.

huge table with matching chairs A huge table with matching chairs took the place of the old pair of small tables that used to be in the kitchen. There is now enough room for the children’s playmates that are always coming over.
