3 Organized and Inspiring Mudrooms

There’s no time quite like back-to-school time to highlight the importance of home organization! If you dream of coming home to a clutter-free space, just take a peek at a few of our serene mudroom designs for inspiration.

We included glossy, painted cabinetry in this Greenwich, CT mudroom, along with practical elements like the stone floor and ample cubby space. Mesh front panels allow air to circulate around the kids’ shoes and clothes, while glossy, painted cabinetry and “peasant” wallpaper add color and texture for a warm, inviting look.

This mudroom in Washington, CT features a desk complete with expansive shelving; pretty baskets look nice while keeping clutter out of sight. On the opposite side, shaker pegs offer a place to hang coats and jackets, and a bench with built-in drawer space provides a convenient seat for putting on boots or shoes. A pin board for posting invitations and grocery lists completes the organizational haven.

We designed this mudroom in a home outside Deer Valley, UT with a long bench perfect for getting prepped with ski clothes and equipment, and again used mesh-front cabinets so air can flow around interior ski boot warmers. The slate floor is durable against snow and salt, and the remaining materials—wood, stone, copper lights and Indian-print fabric—warm up the mudroom so that it’s not sterile or cold.

Which organizational elements would you love for the mudroom in your home?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Journal to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
