I make it my business to know all the terms for rooms, appliances, and everything related to home. But recently i was asked to organize a room and when they said which room, A Mud Room. I didnt recognize the name! Of course i stayed professional and said that i can do it. Right after our conversation I went online and looked it up. When i saw the description, I was familiar with the area they call a mudroom. I knew of other names that part of the house was called like Entryway or Service Porch. SO the learning never ends….
What is a Mud Room?
A mud room is a separate room in your house that normally opens to the outside or to the garage. This room is meant to buffer the rest of your house from dirt that may be brought in from the outside. Thus the name mud room. They often have sinks where you can wash off and also places to store boots, umbrellas etc.
