So as I got to thinking about what to blog about next, I came across this post over on Remodelaholic, and I thought what a great list of awesome mudrooms and then I thought maybe I could talk about just a few that stood out to me.
Mudrooms are one of the most needed or wanted parts of the home. Especially when you have kids, then they have a place to hang up their coats, jackets, backpacks and a place to leave their dirty shoes. This goes for the rest of the family too… A great place for the husband to take off his muddy shoes if he was just out on the farm or maybe it was just a motorcycle ride up in the mountains. And for the wife to hang her purse and kick of her heels after a long day at work or long day of shopping. Whatever the case, this room is either a necessity or a room that everyone can fantasize about having.
There are endless ways of making (or dream about making) a mudroom fit your style and your needs. A mudroom doesn’t have to be overly large, it can be as simple as installing a few box shelves and hooks. Like for example this mudroom wall from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia:
Or hey!… Why not just stuff your mudroom in a closet? That’s pretty simple, right? This mud closet on The 36th Avenue is your example, and in my opinion it’s brilliant.
I do like the idea of just having the mudroom right in the garage. Just dress it up a bit and it will be simply perfect. Like this one from Thrifty Decor Mom. On her blog, you can see the before and after pictures of her mudroom that was created in her garage:
This last one I am about to show you is probably my very favorite of all. The Pioneer Woman created a mudroom/throne room from an old and too-large bathroom. A wall was taken out and was replaced with cubby holes to fit all the kids sports gear and whatever else. And a latter on a track was installed for easy reach. The sink is large enough to wash off whatever necessary. This mudroom will be the one I fantasize about.
