Existing wood used to frame the house was whitewashed and used for the cladded wall and charming bench area. An active gear closet stores all outdoor clothes for quick and easy pick-up before exiting the house.
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.
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.
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.
Mudroom With Brick Floor, Turquoise Walls & White Cabinets
An unexpected design element -- the brick floor laid in a herringbone pattern -- is not only unique, but a highly functional base for this mudroom. Turquoise walls provide vibrancy and interesting contrast, and the room is well-appointed to store shoes, coats and supplies.
This pet-friendly mudroom features a space for cleaning wet pets, housing food and water dishes, and storing food, accessories, dog crates or litter boxes. "A large utility sink can be helpful for refilling dishes or cleaning muddy paws, as can towel bars or towel hooks," says Jeffrey S. Brown, president of J.S. Brown & Co.
Although most mudrooms are linear, this one by Anthony James Construction makes great use of an odd corner near the entrances to the home's garage and backyard. A wraparound bench seat features ample storage underneath, while hooks stand ready for purses, jackets, backpacks and more. The 1970s Dutch door adds a nostalgic top note.
The mudroom's mosaic tile floors and pierced-face cabinets recall early 20th-century Colonial homes. They're pretty and practical, too: the perforated cabinets give sports equipment a chance to air out and the tile is easy to clean on wet, muddy days.
To create a designated laundry and mudroom for this home, designers repurposed part of the garage. They raised the floor, framed in walls and added heated floors (heavenly!).
