As a mother, I can tell you there is nothing better than a well designed mudroom. There are a few elements I feel are important when designing your mudroom space.
Light is one of the most important things in a good mudroom design. You need ample natural light as well as overhead and task lighting. We added interest to this mudroom by making a lantern into a hanging light, we also have a ceiling mount and closet lights. This mudroom is very bright & cheerful. Which is important in Maine!
We think organized storage is the key to getting the mudroom of your dreams!
- Here we have two closets with shelving and rods, 2 benches, hooks, storage bins (for dog toys)
- Dog bed to store dogs on
- Large hooks we use for dog leashes
Flooring that can hold up to sand, dirt, snow, water and mud is a must!This is a recycled tight weave flooring that takes dirt off everything including dog paws.
You could add a family message board, chalk board, personal device charging station, and file holder for important mail or bills!
