Mudrooms are one of our absolute favorite parts of a home. We love the idea of having a place that we can drop all of our things and keep the house looking neat and tidy.
So much so that we are going to add one to our house. We have a big space right by the back door, perfect for creating the ultimate storage area. So we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what exactly we want to achieve out of this space.
The absolute non-negotiable is big, deep drawers for dropping beach bags, purses and all sorts of various and sundry things that tend to collect by the back door.
And, because there is so much vertical space, we definitely plan on taking advantage with little cubbies up top for baskets. You can never have enough baskets!
A space for fishing rods is a must when you have fishermen in your family.
We love having grasscloth for the backdrop. It adds so much character!
We love pretty doors but are afraid that putting too many of them in the area will make it feel closed–it’s kind of narrow. So we’ll probably just include one to hide the electrical panel and store brooms, mops, etc.
And, of course, a bench is a great part of a mudroom area. It’s perfect for slipping on shoes–and, with the right cushion, adds tons of charm!
We love the way that a mudroom instantly makes everything look so much more organized. We’re so excited!
What a beautiful, calming area right by the back door.
