Mudroom Envy: Our Top 5 Mudrooms Design
By: Jenn Zschunke
Fall is beckoning! With this orange and yellow season comes Halloween, Thanksgiving, and other seasonal happenings.
What else comes along and into your house? Trampled leaves, muddy shoes, piles of kids’ sports equipment, wet boots, and more.
These messy fall situations call for a solution that works: A functional, organized, and attractive mudroom.
Moss Building & Design, Northern Virginia’s top remodeling contractor, has extensive experience. We work with our customers to create the mudrooms of their dreams. Here are some of our favorite mudroom design ideas:
Organized Cubbies And Hooks
This gorgeous Oakton, Virginia, mudroom keeps the whole family organized. It has cubbies for shoes, shelves for miscellaneous items, and hooks for jackets and bags. Other cold-weather items, such as gloves and hats, are higher up until winter comes.
If your entryway isn’t from the outdoors or the garage, it’s through the front door. No matter! You can have a mudroom that comes into play when you need it. This functional Oak Hill, Virginia, mudroom has sliding doors. These doors keep the family’s belongings out of sight when out of use.
Combining Laundry & Mudroom
What a glorious thought! All the dirty socks go into the washer. Shoes go on the mudroom shelves, drawers, or cubbies! Combining a mudroom with your laundry room is a great idea for keeping the dirt away.
This Oak Hill home is beautiful and brings the two rooms together to make life a lot easier for the entire family.
Make Your Mudroom Fun & Functional
A mudroom doesn’t have to be boring. A fun color or an interesting lighting fixture makes the mudroom a room that’s suitable to visitors and family. This Arlington, Virginia, mudroom is a perfect example of how this family uses it day in and day out. Yet, it keeps an element of fun and interest in the design style.
Add Seating Options
It’s more comfortable to take shoes on and off if you’re able to sit down. We love this comfortable bench in this mudroom. You can also keep the seats uncovered as another option. The interesting wallpaper and recessed lights also add an element of comfort and calm. This makes the entry into your home via the mudroom one of ease.
