With four children, the homeowners needed a space that would keep their kiddos' coats, boots and backpacks neat and organized. The designers delivered this fully functional mudroom, where each kid has access to his or her own locker.
This mudroom has space for everyone to take their boots off...and then some! Two long benches line either wall and there's a bench island in the middle. Handy cubbies and drawers give everything a place.
This old colonial home had many smaller rooms that needed to be opened up and integrated to make the space more usable for a modern day family. In the kitchen, a board-and-batten wall creates a mudroom and built-in workspace.
Crisp white headboard is offset by warm, red walls in the mudroom. Hung mid-wall, staggered coat hooks help cater to the younger members of the family. Durable and low-maintenance stone flooring is perfect option for the entryway.
In the mudroom, a rainbow of baskets makes a colorful and handy spot to stash everyday clutter: keys, phones, wallets. Underneath are wall hooks, benches and shoe cubbies, all of which allow bright sneakers and jackets to become a cheery part of the decor.
This mudroom features a custom, rust-colored backpack station. "When the kids come home, they remove any necessary notes and homework and hang their backpacks up," says the designer. "Once homework is done, it all goes back into the backpack ready for the next day."
This wonderful mudroom has all the friendly personality of a seaside cottage. Wood floors were replaced with more durable limestone (echoing country villages' cobblestone streets). New shiplap walls were painted a beautiful robin's egg blue to contrast the cabinets' dark navy lacquer.
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)
