Need help designing mudroom in new home!
andrewandreaFebruary 21, 2013
We are building a new home and I need help designing our mudroom. Please see the attached floor plan, the room size is 11 x 16. The layout of the mudroom can be completely changed, except for the placement of the exterior door. I would like to have a broom closet for the vacuum, swiffer, broom, mop etc, another closet to store coats, shoes, boots behind doors so I don't see the clutter. I'm thinking of a bench with hooks for the kids backpacks and maybe one jacket for each person in the family. We have an 8yo son and a 6yo daughter. I also have an upright freezer and the potential for a second refrigerator that I would like to go in the mudroom. I am trying to decide whether or not to add a craft area with a counter top and storage for craft supplies that would double as a charging station for phones and other electronics. I am thinking the craft area could also be where the crazy amount of papers could go (maybe each person has an in/out box) instead of on our kitchen island, which is where they end up currently. I would love any thoughts and ideas!
