This mudroom needed to be expansive enough to accommodate a family of six so the designers included tons of cubbies, a large closet, powder room and even a sink! Rug: Oscar Isberian; Pillow: Jayson Home
Small Mudroom Provides Storage at Back Entrance of Boston Condominium
To create a mudroom, designers moved the back entrance of the home to create a place for storage. Each cubby was custom build to make the most of the previously useless space that had once contained plumbing and utilities for this and other units.
The homeowners needed a "drop zone" for all of the family's bags, shoes and coats, so designers added a space with built-in benches, hooks and cubbies for plenty of storage. A chalkboard wall mixes in a fun element to the space and creates contrast against the white walls.
No need for a trip to the kennel. Constructed by Washington, D.C.-based Four Brothers Carpentry, this built-in dog kennel and spa is located in a spacious mudroom that includes the family’s laundry facilities. Two comfy cages hold large dogs. A bottom drawer reveals a hide-a-way bed for a tiny pooch.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, designer Jillian Harris decided to make a contemporary mudroom for the family. The homeowners needed a space where the family could come in from enjoying their time in the pool and leave their wet things. The mint green and cream striped walls give the space a beach feel, while the bright red "pool" lettering gives the space a touch of modern flair.
Olive green cabinetry in this mudroom boasts ample storage for a busy family. Cubbies keep jackets and bags neatly tucked away, yet accessible. A built-in desk provides a quiet study or work space with drawers for mail and office accessories.
Yellow and White Contemporary Mudroom With Baskets
A place for everything and everything in its place: This contemporary mudroom carries out that motto in colorful style. White baskets easily organize smaller items while sunshine yellow paint brightens up the interior of the shelf's lower compartments.
With easy access to the home's laundry and family rooms, the mudroom serves as a transitional space and storage area for winter gear and outerwear. A side door leads outdoors, where limestone stepping stones mark the path to the river. (HGTV Dream Home 2012)
This simple mudroom area by Lakeshore Designs takes advantage of an awkward kitchen niche and draws the eye to what otherwise would have been dead space. It's small, but there's plenty of room to sit and tug off boots or transfer items between purses. As a bonus, it can double as a place for guests to perch and chat with the cook.
White Contemporary Mudroom With Built-In Upholstered Bench
Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial with a primary focus to create a studio for the two little budding artists in the family. Besides creating a place for the kids, the basement space could solve some of family’s increasing need for a place to store shoes and coats by creating a mud room niche, a small laundry area and even an upgrade to the teeny powder room. A mix of high and low materials adds personalization and keeps the space from feeling cheap.
