This mudroom features lots of storage, coat hooks for the family's children and lots of storage. Shelving and handrails are made of reclaimed lumber and the ceramic tile floor is ready for muddy Oregon boots.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created a new laundry room and mudroom for homeowners, complete with plenty of storage cabinets, shelving and coat hooks. Brick floors were installed for a durable yet attractive look.
Hooks by the door help to capture backpacks, coats and scarves before they can clutter up the rest of the house. The reclaimed wood wall hints to the rustic-modern design elements featured throughout the house. It's also practical, keeping the wall clean and ding-free in this high-traffic area.
When designing a mudroom, think of how your children will use the space. Jeffrey S. Brown, president of J.S. Brown & Co., says, "Most parents tell us their children do better with open areas because they are more likely to hang their coat on a hook than to open a closet door and pull down a hanger." In this situation, low-hanging hooks are the best option. Kids can easily hang their bags and coats on rows of hooks and kick off their shoes below. Designer Sarah Richardson's walk-through mudroom is the perfect example of a low-maintenance entry with kids in mind.
Natural wood is used for the door and entryway wall, contrasting against the dark hardwood floors. Coat hooks and a bench with open cubbies provide easy-to-access storage. A graphic piece of art adds visual interest to the white walls.
This mudroom features a simple locker design that has space for everyone. Tile floors can take the abuse from kids, pets and wet shoes. White shiplap is adorable with the traditional coat hooks. The blue pendant light is a charming touch of color.
Built-in benches with blue cushions offer comfortable seating in the mudroom, with a place to store shoes underneath. Above the coat hooks, wicker baskets provide enough storage for any beach items you may need. A wooden console table centers the space to complete the chic, coastal design.
If you have a pile of tangled extension cords in your garage, try this inexpensive hack. Use 1' sections of chain to hang cords on a coat hook. Mount the coat rack on a stud or use wall anchors, and hang two cords from each hook to create wall storage.
When guests arrive, they are greeted as anyone would be greeted into a home — without disruption and separation from a traditional host stand. Mailboxes and coat hooks are among the welcoming elements that put the guests at ease and set the tone for the rest of the open-kitchen experience.
A designer trick to make tiny outdoor spaces look larger is to accentuate height. This modest 9-foot-by-10-foot covered deck seems much larger than it actually is. A purposeful combination of 8-foot-long drapery panels, posts lined with decorating coat hooks and a grouping of hanging plants draws the eye upward.
