What will you think of a room just for your shoes and dirt? It is a concept that many people are thinking about. The purpose of this room is an enclosed porch or a piece of the entryway. You will need a closet for all the jackets. You will need a shoe rack in the room. You may need a bench to use as a place to put on and take off shoes. A hat rack and a lower rack for the children's coat and gloves are a just a few things that you can place in your house.
When it comes to this home improvement project, your wife will be glad that you think about her and the time it takes to clean, and you'll love it because it gives you a reason to bring out some of the big tools. The first thing that you will want to tackle is enclosing the small area off. You may want to place a folding door so that it is close off, or you can place an entire wall up. This room does not have to be big; it just needs to be good enough to have a big closet and some other things. You should design this room to meet all the needs of the family. You may want an area for sports or activities, and you may want an area for the smaller children to hang their things up. This room should be at the busiest area were most people come in and out.
You may want to get creative. Depending on the size of the entry way or porch you may be able to get away by just organizing the room until closets and compartments. If you have a larger entryway, you should be able to cut the room off so that you can save energy cleaning and you can also save some money on the hearting (since the kids run in and out all day long).
This is a great idea if you are constantly having the kids and their friends coming into the house. This will be a great and useful room for anyone. You will find that this room by end up being the most useful project. Again, your wife will love you for doing this because a room like this will contain all the dirt and mud and no one should be tracking mud into the house.
