Did you have guests this holiday season? Did they have items that needed storing? What once was a nice to have is now quickly becoming a necessity, especially during the pandemic. Originally designed to store property or outdoor clothing near the building’s side entrance, mudrooms weren’t always referred to what they are today. The term “mudroom” was not coined until the mid-1950s. Mudrooms were technically used before, but were known as “little houses”. Their revolutionary era past arose from wealthy landowners who proceeded to build more substantial colonial or plantation style dwellings. As they built larger homes, their original smaller buildings were transitioned towards storage. This was the beginning of mudroom-style use.

Your Closet Personality What does your closet mean about you? The Romantic The most obvious sign that you’re dealing with a Romantic personality type is the copious amounts of nostalgia hanging around. The Romantic probably doesn’t keep the most organized closet, as they’re never able to throw anything even slightly meaningful away. It’s a safe bet to assume there’s a giant box of old love letters stuck in the corner, as well as a huge stack of T-shirts the Romantic hasn’t worn since high school but just can’t seem to part with. If you’re ever helping the Romantic move or organize, make sure not to throw anything away without asking first: you can never be sure just what they’ve been saving from that date they had freshman year of college. The Idealist We all have family and friends that fit into this category, and it’s fairly easy to imagine what Read more
