Excellent collection of 29 of the best mudroom lockers to tidy up mudroom storage. Wood lockers, shoe storage, decorative lockers and more.


Wooden mudroom locker with 5 sections and shoe storage.


3 months ago I was watching a home design show with my wife (we PVR as many as we can find because they’re an absolute hoot to watch) and I saw how one interior designer add a wood mudroom storage locker to the mudroom area.

Before the transformation, the room was a disaster – with shoes, bags, umbrellas and stuff lying about all over the place.

The lockers (which are really cubicle wooden shelving units with hooks) tidied the room up very, very nicely.

Let’s face it, kids have a lot of stuff and there’s nothing more annoying than walking into your home and practically twisting your ankle stepping on shoes or implanting a big muddy footprint on your child’s favorite jacket by stepping on it because it’s on the floor.

The best solution I’ve seen is not costly and it’s easy to install.  It’s a type of furniture called a mudroom locker shelving unit.

Types of Mudroom Lockers

1.  Tiers and Columns:  the main categorization of mudroom lockers is based on tiers and columns.  Tiers refer to the number of rows.  Columns refers to the number of individual locker units.  Here’s an example of a 3-tier 5 column wide locker:

2.  Kids’-sized vs. adult-sized cubby lockers:  If you have young kids, you might prefer a shorter storage unit so the kids can reach the hooks.  The usual kids’ height lockers are 50.5 inches.  The adult units are typically 69 inches in height.

3. Locker vs. Hall Tree:  While a subtle difference, there is a difference.  Lockers are self-contained storage cubbies, whereas a hall tree which serves the same purpose is open.  Typically lockers should only go in a mudroom or more casual entry, whereas an entry hall is more formal and suitable for a foyer or formal entry area.  That said, hall trees work great in mudrooms as well.  We restrict our list below to lockers only.

Additional Features to Consider

1.  Simple vs. Decorative:  There are simple versions (see below) and more decorative options.  Go with what you think is best.

2.  Benches included:  Some mudroom lockers include benches on the bottom, which can be very handy for sitting on when putting shoes on… and great for hall storage.

3.  Drawers and shelving (storage):  Some include drawers /shelves at the top and/or bottom.

4.  Hooks:  Hooks are important for coats and hats.  You can easily add more hooks to the default number of hooks.

5.  Materials used:  Many are wood, but you can find metal ones.  I think for a home, wood mudroom lockers are the best.  Metal is overkill and a bit institutional looking.  Kids (and adults) don’t wish to be reminded of high school in their home.

6.  Shoe storage:  It’s super handy to have shoe storage option with small sections at the bottom of your mudroom storage unit.

Kids Mudroom Locker Dimensions

  • Short:  35 inches

FYI, the above are general dimensions.  There are exceptions and of course if you have one custom built you can make it as short, tall, narrow or wide as you like.
