Laundry and Mudroom
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created a new laundry and mudroom for the homeowners, complete with plenty of storage cabinets and shelving as well as a desk that double as a folding surface. A chalkboard backsplash will come in handy for taking notes.
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.
After Sheila Bridges was done with it, however, the room was anything but bland—she turned the reception area into a welcome room for dogs and their walkers, then dubbed it, “Le Salon Des Chiens.” Wall art celebrates the relationship between humans and canines, while a dog tub and a table covered in treats tops it all off. This mudroom is truly a pet’s paradise.
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.
This Washington, D.C., area homeowner wanted the convenience of a mudroom near her kitchen. However, she wanted its contents concealed. Four Brothers, a carpentry company, granted her wish with two side-by-side small closets to house traditional mudroom supplies that blends seamlessly with the kitchen cabinetry.
Hooks on the wall offer easy hanging storage for coats and handbags in this simple but well-outfitted mudroom that acts as a portal between the inside of the home and a side entry that leads to the garage.
An old farm table with faded wood on top and distressed teal paint on the legs was cut in half long ways and affixed to the wall, to create the mudroom console table. The table provides a place to rest keys, sunglasses and other daily essentials.
This smartly designed and brightly colored mudroom is equipped with a potting bench, a sitting bench, a pegboard and even a pet door. The pegboard is perfect for hanging miscellaneous items when making a quick exit.
In Trista's design, she added a mudroom right off the kitchen. This way, the family can contain their messy clothes and boots to this space and keep the rest of the house clean after a long day of hiking in the mountains. See it at hgtv.com.
