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.
The Lakeshore Designs team gave this mudroom a crisp, tailored feel while still making it ultra-functional. Baskets inside high cubbies conceal loose items such as gloves, while drawers keep footwear and other gear hidden away. Even coats and bags hanging from the hooks won't look untidy, thanks to the clean backdrop. Throw pillows and a cheery rug make the space feel polished.
This mudroom entryway features a set of cubbies with different colors for each family member. The mudroom leads to an attractive set of wooden stairs and includes cork wainscoting that extends four feet up the wall.
If you can afford to give up a closet, take a cue from Röm Architecture and transform it into a mini mudroom. Divided cubbies are sized for different footwear types so that they don't end up in a heap. There's even room for school notebooks or library books that need to be toted in and out of the house.
Just one or two key pieces can transform an underutilized wall into a mini-mudroom packed with storage. Placing a small storage bench with bins or baskets near the door is a fantastic way to control inbound clutter. Well-placed hooks, cubbies and shelves add plenty of storage and make the most of limited space. Add small-scale artwork and throw pillows to keep the look sophisticated and polished.
What was an empty wall in the foyer now houses built-in storage cubbies for members of the family to stash jackets, shoes and sports equipment. Dove gray shelving with brass hardware proves that the catch-all room doesn't have to be boring.
A simple and sleek mudroom provides convenient spot for jackets, shoes and toys right inside the door. Stunning hardwood floors are the perfect juxtaposition to the ultra-white cubbies and cabinets in this tidy mudroom.
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.
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.
Your mudroom doesn't necessarily need to be an expansive storage unit with shelves, cubbies and drawers. Susan Howell says the essentials of a mudroom should be entirely based on the needs of the homeowner. Smaller families with teenagers may only require a small bench and hooks for hanging coats. "What is really essential in a mudroom is knowing the demands of the mudroom before it's even built, so that whatever is essential to the homeowner's family is present in the final product," she says.
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
