Entry Mudroom Offers Spot to Shed and Store Sandy Shoes
A bench by the door in the entry mudroom of this New Hampshire beach house provides a spot to take off sandy shoes, and individual hampers beneath it offer a place to stash flip flops or beach towels. The bold blue wall introduces the color palette that unites each room of the house.
This cheerful laundry room also functions as the mud room for the young family. The tile floor and walls are easy to clean. Storage is a mix of closed cabinets, open shelving, pretty baskets and even lockers for each family member.
This pantry, with its bright turquoise wallpaper, is where all the small appliance action happens as well as a bonus refrigerator. A swinging door allows for morning breakfast and coffee to all happen and be shut behind a door.
Beach Themed Mudroom at Rhode Island Beach Cottage
Designers wanted to help keep the homeowners organized, so they designed a beach themed mudroom. The space has storage for shoes and beach bags, as well as racks for towels and swim suits so that all of the sand and water from a trip to the beach stays in this space instead of getting tracked through the rest of the house.
A closet can be much more than storage! This one features a cheerful palette of yellow and teal, matching the colors of the master bedroom. And the closet's big enough to fit enough a sofa, with natural light filtering in from a window behind it.
This laundry room does double duty as a crafting room as well, with long countertops, a tall stool and lots of drawers and cabinets for storage. A pretty graphic pattern on the floor gives a chic, contemporary touch to the entire space.
Fun floral wallpaper, a mounted decorative animal head and a bold teal accent wall combine to create a fun dressing room the homeowner could hang out in all day. Rustic wood beams and trim give a nod to the Park City, Utah, locale.
A long and tall hallway that leads to the garage, the well-detailed mudroom includes different storage options, curated design details and walls painted a deep slate gray that give the space an elegant look.
