Functional Yet Stylish Mudrooms

| Design

A mudroom is a room we never knew we needed until we finally had one; where on earth did we put all of the shoes, umbrellas, dog leashes and rogue sweaters before?!

If you’re lucky enough to have a mudroom in your house, it’s imperative that it's as stylish as it is functional. Just because it’s a great place to store muddy sneakers doesn’t mean it has to look disheveled, unorganized and chaotic. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to chicly designed mudrooms.

Slap On Shiplap
Thanks to Joanna Gaines, we have a full blown love affair with shiplap; incorporate it into your mudroom for a dreamy farmhouse vibe.

Add Texture with Wood
Unfinished wood walls are so much more interesting than plain white painted walls; keep the rest of the decor to a minimum to accentuate the texturized focal point.

Make A Mud Hall
Have a hallway or extra wall leading to your mudroom? Create a “mud hall” with a magnetic chalkboard or paint wall to keep track of to-do lists and upcoming events, plus a gallery wall of some of your family’s favorite memories together.

It’s All In The Details
Beautifully patterned pillows, fresh flowers, wicker baskets and chic leather bags all combine to make the prettiest space.

Create Your Own Space
Don’t have an actual mudroom? No problem! Create your own by designating a corner or small wall for a bench, hooks and whiteboards to keep you and your family organized.
