With easy access to the home's laundry and family rooms, the mudroom in the 2012 HGTV Dream Home serves as a transitional space and storage area for winter gear and outerwear. Artwork in a hall niche hints at the color palette of the family room, which lies steps beyond. The framed monotype by Betty Merken is flanked by two polished nickel buffet tables.

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.
The HGTV Dream Home 2012 neutral mudroom is accentuated by colorful jackets and snow gear. Industrial pendant lights can be seen in the mudroom and the nearby laundry room. By placing the mudroom and laundry room so close together, no one has a chance to dirty up the rest of the house with mud-covered belongings.
