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.

A pop of turquoise on a sliding door hides this mudroom and pantry combined space. The giant pegboard is an ideal flexible storage solution since the pegs can be arranged to hold whatever may be needed. One thick floating wood bench allows for a dumping zone while shoes and flip-flops tuck in below.
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)

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 mudroom niche, a small laundry area and even an upgrade to the teeny powder room.

If you can afford to give up a closet, take a cue from Röm Architecture and transform it into a mini mudroom.

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.

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.
