Statistics indicate that the rooms potential home buyers place the most importance on are kitchens and bathrooms. However, if you live in Vermont you probably know better. You probably know the most important room in a Vermont house is a good mudroom. With Vermont’s ever-changing weather, it’s no wonder a lot of outdoor mess gets tracked into the house. The best way to control that mess is to confine it to a mudroom. That is, after all, why it’s called a mudroom.
What Makes a Good Mudroom?
As soon as people walk in the door, shoes and boots should come off. That means a good mudroom will have plenty of space for many pairs of shoes. It will also have a place to hang coats and jackets and a place to set things down while you take off your footwear and hang up your clothes.
The ultimate mudroom will have a radiant-heated floor. With radiant heat, all that wet footwear will dry out within a few hours. A radiant-heated floor is usually tile or concrete, and easy to clean. Often, a quick sweeping is all that’s needed to tidy up.
