Home Design Tips For Your Mudroom


Nothing is more overwhelming than being met by chaos the moment you walk in the door.  The good news? You can ease your transition into your home by creating a welcoming and well-organized mudroom. Keep reading for our tips on creating the perfect mudroom entry!

Custom Cabinetry

The most successful homes are those in which there is a place for everything, and it all starts the moment you walk in the door. Make the most of whatever limited space you have available by opting to have custom cabinets designed and installed for each member of the family. The ideal cabinets will take advantage of horizontal space and provide a place to hang coats and coverups, a cubby for a favorite pair of shoes, and overhead storage for seasonal items like hats, mittens, or umbrellas.

Thoughtful Flooring

Mudrooms can often live up to their namesake and become, well, muddy. Luckily there are plenty of options to ensure your mudroom floor stands up to mud, debris, and more. Our favorite? Durable, easy-to-clean options like ceramic tile and LVP flooring!

Have A Seat

Install a bench or stool for the perfect place to sit and pull off boats or tie lace-up sneakers. Even better, select one that can serve double duty as a storage unit. That way, you’ll gain even more space for stashing outerwear, sports equipment, and other items you may need as you are running out the door.

Wash Up

If space allows, consider installing a sturdy wash sink right in your mudroom. A mudroom sink makes it easy for family members to wash up before entering the house. A utility sink can also come in handy for cleaning purposes or as a place to temporarily stash dirty or wet outwear.

Pet Palace

Because of its easy cleanup and versatile use, mudrooms are often a great place for litter boxes or food and water dishes for your pets. Leave a portion of your under-counter area open for pet items, or choose another nook out of the way of high-traffic areas.
