A mudroom was needed off the kitchen entry to provide space for an active family. A custom storage unit was designed for storage along with a desk for home office activities. This photo also highlights the bar area requested by the Owner.

Can you tell me where the lights are from? - The fixture looks about perfect for our remodeled mudroom and I'm having trouble finding something that length. Thank you.

I thought they came from Rejuvination Lighting Company, but I can't seem to find that short stem again. You could call Rejuvination and ask if they can modify their Rose City light fixture, or else use the really short pendant.

workstation and desk dimensions - I love the look of this area. I am also trying to throw a desk in my mudroom and a floor to ceiling cabinet as well. I saw that you said the dimensions of the desk is 32-33 inches wide but I was also wondering how big the sitting/cubby area is? I love the way the sitting area wraps around. Can you please also tell me what you used for the top and the dimensions of the bottom drawers? Thanks!!

Desk/workstation dimensions - Could you please let me know the size (width) of the desk? We are trying to squeeze in a small workstation in our mudroom. This one looks perfect - wonderful design and use of space. Thank you!

I believe that desk area had a 24 inch deep work surface.
Second reading, you asked for width, I think that was about 32 or 33 inches wide.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Designed for an active Chicago family, this kitchen opens up to a snug home office and a mudroom area with built-in storage for outerwear and plenty of room to sit down and pull off snowy winter boots.
Workspace for a multi-tasker. Immediate to the door, the backyard, and the kitchen, this small corner provides not only a flat surface, but plenty of storage.
Natalie Myers added this to The Handsome Mud Room
If you have space to spare, the built-ins in the back door to this kitchen find space for a writing surface, lockers and cubbies, even a wet bar. With ample lighting, this kitchen will naturally become the central hub for family activity.
