Clever Screened Doors For Airflow And Visibility
One of the more creative mudroom ideas is to place screens in front of the storage areas instead of solid door covers. In this unit, which doesn’t quite reach the ceiling, there are cubbies that hold baskets for toys and sports equipment, while backpacks and other items can just be seen through the screen. Cubbies below hold shoes.
Classic And Functional In Dark Wood
This ruggedly masculine storage area has top cubbies for hats, hooks for coats and backpacks and bottom cubbies for footwear. It is softened by the yellow wall, white door frame and the pastel rug on the floor. A potted plant brings a touch of nature into the room.
Bright Green Lockers And Built-In Bench
Another brightly colored mudroom features lovely, floor to ceiling green-blue lockers with bar pulls and doors with recessed panels. The wall is painted warm yellow with white trim. The floor is laid with cardboard gray planks that complement the brightness of the lockers.
Cheerful Wallpaper And Modern-Day Cabinets
Its color scheme goes well with white cabinets and cubbies and black bench seats. The exposed wood beam and industrial pendant light are focal points of the room.
Contemporary And Simple Mudroom Decor
One of the good mudroom ideas is to keep it simple. The pure white shelf in this room has space for rattan baskets with name tags attached and hooks to hang clothes or even a rattan basket full of bright flowers. A polished wooden slab with space beneath for boots serves as a bench. The slate gray floor and gray walls balance out the wood and the bright whites.
Writing Boards For Personalized Hooks
A variation on one of the mudroom ideas is this space, which not only has the name of the kids above the places where their backpacks hang, but a huge and happy photograph of said kids above it. One wall has been painted entirely with chalkboard paint for messages. The varnished red-brown wood of the floor keeps the color scheme from being too monochrome.
Simple And Modern Clean Lines
Clean lines that are softened by bright colors are another of the worthy mudroom ideas. In this room, the angles of the black door, white framed windows, the bench and the wooden wall cabinets are softened by the colorful pillows, bags, rolled up beach towels and the blue and white pattern of the rug.
Clever Space Usage And Rattan Accents
The warm color, affordability and somewhat primitive look of rattan has made it more and more popular in places that needs lots of storage. In this simple mudroom, bracketed cubbies hold rattan boxes, while hooks beneath them hold roomy, woven rattan bags.
Bench Centerpiece In A Symmetrical Layout
Some good mudroom ideas are to make the storage areas symmetrical. This mudroom features identical crates fastened to the wall on either side of a bench and the clothes hooks above it. The crates are just big enough to hold child-sized shoes and boots, while the hooks keep their coats and mufflers tidy. The rack beneath the bench is for grown up footwear.
Bright And Sunny Color Choices
Don’t be afraid to go for bright colors in the mudroom. This maritime mudroom has one bright orange wall, colorful bench pillows and colorful beach towels folded in the cubbies beneath the bench. The lovely rug comes in shades of pink, red and blue. Natural light through the small window and the door makes this a room to linger in.
Best Of Mudroom Ideas: Reclaimed Wood Cubicles
Another of the worthy mudroom ideas uses repurposed wood. This type of wood is left over from buildings such as barns and warehouses that are no longer in use. Used here, it gives the space a sort of old west look, sign over the bench proclaiming “Vermont” notwithstanding.
Tile Floor And Personalized Closets
In some mudrooms everyone has their own personalized storage area. The bold stone tiles on the floor add heft to the white and yellow color scheme.
Wooden Barn Door And Rustic Feel
The use of a barn door is one of the better mudroom ideas. These are basically rustic slabs that open and close on rollers. The rich color of this wooden barn door is mirrored in the floor to ceiling storage area in this mudroom and even in the roll-up shades on the window. The effect is softened by an Oriental area rug in muted pastels and the glow given by recessed lights.
An Inviting Window Bay Bench
This charming mudroom optimizes space by placing a bench in a window bay and placing floor and wall cabinets around it. There is even a one-drawer floor cabinet beneath the bench next to partitions that hold other needful items. The color scheme of teal cabinets and batten boards, cream wall, ceiling, window frame and shades makes the area an even more comfortable place to be.
