10 Ideas for a Fabulous Mudroom

A mudroom is one of my favorite utilitarian additions in a home. These extra spaces are usually connected to a side or back entrance into a house and are used for storing things such as coats, boots, and outdoor equipment for the kids. Usually, they have a spot to sit as you put on/take off shoes and sometimes even have a sink or dog washing station. (In fact, they got the name ‘mudroom’ because people would take off their muddy shoes in this space so they didn’t track it around the house.)

Mudrooms can be combined with a laundry room, but can also be a separate space entirely. They are a utility space that is highly functional and very convenient, making them popular among families. If you have one or are planning to move into a home that does, I’ve gathered 10 ideas to inspire you as you decorate the space. These photos are full of great ideas for organization and decor for a variety of styles and needs.
