has anyone converted a porch to a mudroom? How to make the outside look beautiful and not just added on?

We have a lovely much loved front porch - about 11 feet wide - that we may convert to a mudroom for the purpose of keeping children's boots, bags, shoes etc out of the living room (which is currently about 13 feet wide. not big) It is an open living room, and creating a closet would take up a lot of space, making it feel cramped.

Of course it can be done. Hire an experienced contractor.

Consider using materials identical to the exterior of the home or something that goes with the style. Check out "sunroom photos" on Houzz for ideas.
