During the cold winter months, proper mudroom storage solutions are just as important as holiday decorations if you want to keep your home tidy and clean for holiday guests. One of the main challenges during the season is dealing with all of the mud and mess that wet winter shoes can leave behind.
One of the solutions against muddy puddles on your floor, left behind by soggy shoes, is a boot tray. Not only is a suitable tray in your mudroom almost a necessity during the winter, but it will also keep dirt from spreading throughout your home year-round. The best part is that boot trays come in a variety of colors, styles, and designs so you can easily find the model that works well with your interior decor. If, however, you cannot find the tray that matches your taste and needs, you can make your own out of dish drain mats or baking sheets. Once your tray is ready, fill it up with river rocks; snow, rain, and mud will drain through the rocks, preventing your shoes from standing in the water. In addition, different river rocks can help you customize the look of your finished boot tray. If your interior design is about contrasts, you can consider a white tray filled with black river rocks. If, on the other hand, you are aiming for a subtle solution that will blend in with earthy tones of your home, you can opt for wood-like tray, filled with plain, gray river stones. Finding suitable mudroom storage solutions at home improvement stores and shopping malls is not always as straightforward as you might think.
