I’ve been spending some serious time researching mudroom layouts and designs recently as we’re finally ready to build out some storage in our back entryway. Mudrooms are pretty imperative to living in a mountain town – you need a place for snow boots, ski boots, rain boots… you get the idea. But mudrooms are pretty important to most homes – it’s a place to stay organized.
I love the above mudroom that has cubbies for each member of the family. This works so well with kids, they know which “locker” is there’s to put away their jackets, store shoes underneath, etc. It’s a place that teaches organization and mimics what they might be used to at school.
This mudroom is both function and fashion. Appreciating the pops of pattern and color, along with the user-friendly design of this space. Why not go with a patterned tile floor in a mudroom space?
Definitely love the modern take on this mudroom in this gorgeous Australian beach house. The repeated horizontal lines of the upper and lower “boxes” are so pleasing to the eye and so utilitarian.
Such a great idea above by designer Jenny Komenda – she used Ikea Pax wardrobes to flank a simple bench in her Gentry home. With the addition of crown molding and shiplap it looks so custom and there’s so much storage in those wardrobes!
You don’t need a big space to create a mudroom. This mudroom proves just that – all you need is a bench and some hooks to do the job.
Lockers are a great way to keep every member of the family organized. If you give each member their own cubby or locker, they know where to hang their coats and drop their boots.
This Tahoe house mixes both open hooks and closed lockers for a full use mudroom. Ski gear can hide behind the cabinet doors while everyday jackets and shoes can easily be stored next to them.
Mudroom designs are important – think about how you’ll use it? Is it by the front door, back door, what kind of drop zone do you need? n many new homes, the mudroom is put off of a main thoroughfare. But in existing homes, you can create a mudroom in a back entryway, like we just did, or along a hallway.
When designing your mudroom, think about how you’ll use the space, how you’ll flow through it. Where do you want to hang your coat, throw off your boots? We love the combo of hooks, baskets and a bench.
