mudroom design ideas

A mudroom should be designed so that it is easy to enter and exit and spacious enough that family members do not have to move out of the way so that others can walk in or out. Layout considerations should include sight lines and seating. You want to have your mudroom area more concealed from the rest of the home. It is better if you do not see a row of drying boots. However, if you have space constraints, consider storage bins to hide your shoes. A bench, whether free-standing or built-in, makes for a great place to sit and remove shoes or boots.

A key consideration to your mudroom design is the flooring, using slip-resistant materials that do not absorb water and are easy to clean. Such materials includes slate, porcelain tiles and Marmoleum (a natural, environment friendly linoleum).A lot of mudrooms are designed as more than just mudrooms—some incorporate laundries, message centers and even craft tables.

You can create a mudroom inexpensively with freestanding lockers and cubbies, or you can invest in custom built-ins. Setting up a built-in mudroom can range anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000, depending on the amount of cabinetry and built-ins. For a mudroom addition, you would expect to spend $15,000 and up.
