Wood Benches: a necessity in the "Mudroom"
Wood benches. It makes sense. Winter is just around the corner. That means wet boots, muddy dog paws, little scatters of melting snow, and piles of schoolbooks. Around these parts many homes have an important collection place, the mudroom. Unlike a front entry, much less formal, the mudroom is usually a home’s secondary entrance. It’s the hardworking space and very helpful for keeping the house clean and organized. There are key elements to the mudroom that’s worth one’s salt. Hooks and Racks to hang coats, hats, scarves to maximize space and keep cool weather gear arranged in one convenient spot. A tile floor with washable floor mats both durable and easy to clean. Some who have the space would install a sink or move the laundry from the basement to this space. After all, it’s much quicker to toss dirty clothes and linens directly into the wash without dirtying the rest of the house. Next on the checklist would be a wood bench. When you come home or back inside from the weather you probably should remove your shoes. A sturdy wood bench allows you to take a seat to remove your footwear before you enter the rest of the house. We carry several great options for the mudroom.
One wood mudroom bench we routinely receive compliments on from our loyal customers is the Shaker Pew Mudroom Bench. The Shaker style of furniture dates back to the 18th century. The Shaker principles of simplicity, honesty and humility were reflected in the crafts and furnishings they produced. This item fits nicely in most mudrooms or entryways and allows you to conceal a few pair of footwear underneath its sturdy frame.
A new wood bench from us, the Mission Mudroom Bench offers a seat back and shelving below, providing ample storage for shoes and comfortable sitting.
Ensured by our Quality Guarantee, our entryway tables and décor are produced from local North American hardwood harvested from forests that are certified to employ and maintain environmental sustainability practices.
