Wrangle Your Winter Gear

hard-working-entrancesThis piece on tackling your home’s “drop zone” appeared in the winter issue of Central Virginia HOME.

In my 1960s rancher, the front door opens directly into the living room. There is no entryway, no foyer and certainly no mudroom. As a family of five (six if you count the dog), our cast-off shoes, abandoned backpacks and discarded dog leashes are a year-round problem.

When the weather is cold and wet, and coats, boots and woolens litter my living room, my entrance’s shortcomings become all the more obvious. It’s easy to convince myself that I need a mudroom the size of the Taj Mahal, but it’s much harder to figure out what to do with the space I actually have.
