Is a mudroom update on your home remodeling wish list? Although many homeowners overlook this hardworking room when renovating, making a few simple changes to the space will ensure that it fits the style of the rest of your home. These seven upscale mudrooms demonstrate how you can turn an unloved space into a stylish addition to your home.
The Perfect White Mudroom
Belongings and sports equipment are corralled behind white paneled doors in this clean, convenient space. Crown moldings, stylish hardware and a small chandelier add a little charm to the room, while a brightly colored bench offers shoe storage.
Wood Cubbies and Ceiling Add Warmth
Because this mudroom flows into the rest of the house, basic cabinets and flooring would have looked decidedly out of place. The wood cubbies and closet complement the beautiful wood plank ceiling, while the floor tile unifies the entrance, mudroom and powder room.
A Combination Mudroom/Office Offers Convenience
A little-used breakfast room was turned into this mudroom/office space. Realizing that “mud” room is a particularly apt description for the space, the homeowners chose California Gold slate tile for its ability to hide dirt easily. Open cubbies offer storage for shoes, coats, umbrellas and personal items, while a spacious desk provides an out-of-the-way place to catch up on emails, plan the meals for the week or even do a little homework.
A Laundry/Mudroom Combination Makes Clean Up Simple
A combination laundry room/mudroom offers one-stop convenience. Dirty clothes can be deposited directly into the washer, while muddy boots and sports equipment receive a good scrubbing in the farmhouse sink. Green shaker cabinets and cubbies add storage and give your family a place to drop their shoes and backpacks.
Compact, Yet Stylish, Mudroom Maximizes Storage
This mudroom may be a little smaller than the others, but it includes all of the features you need. An attractive wooden bench covers cubbies capable of holding multiple pairs of shoes. Just above are woven baskets for the little things you want to keep out of sight. Another collection of smaller baskets fits into shelves set into the wall, providing additional storage. A large sink, subway tiles and floating wooden shelves add stylish touches.
Found Space Becomes a Mudroom
This mudroom never feels dark, thanks to double windows on two walls. Once a porch, the mudroom now offers the perfect place to store racquets, balls, bags and coats. The large sink and counter area provide ample space to clean off dirty cleats or repot plants.
An Island in a Mudroom? Why Not?!
The large island in this mudroom can be used to fold laundry, work on school projects or wrap gifts. The Shaker cabinets on the walls and under the island offer storage for laundry detergent, art supplies and other necessities. Reclaimed wood cubbies occupy one end of the room and offer both open and closed storage.
