    Marvelous design, proportions so harmonious, horizontals and verticals balancing one another.
    Is the desk (not wall cabinets) custom built or available from a manufacturer?

    what is the depth of your shelving? I am designing a similar space.

    The desk dimensions are approximately 6' x 12".

    Adding a desk is a very thoughtful use of such a large mud room.

    The floor is slate and it was sealed with a traditional sealer for slate floors.
  • Karen
    Thank you so much1I am having a very similar slate installed and they told me there are glossy sealers and non-glossy. I want this look....so do you remember if this was a non-glossy type? I really like the look in this photo!

    Probably easier to clean than many other types of mudroom floor. Can be wiped down with a damp mop. There are also cleaners particularly for these types of floors.

    Where was the slate purchased?

    This entire unit was custom designed and built. The cabinet maker is Diamond Woodworks in Trenton, NJ.

    These floors are California gold slate. The color is perfect for hiding dirt!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The new mudroom features cubbies for shoes and bags, and a desk for collecting mail and dealing with the administrative tasks of running a household.

Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Ideas for High-Functioning MudroomsOct 23, 2013

Office space. Transform your mudroom into a double-function space with a built-in desk and file storage. One wall is all you need if you plan it right. The cubbies and hooks help keep outdoor gear and clutter separated from the desk area.

Knight replaced the breakfast room with a mudroom designed to stand up to a young family and East Coast weather. “This California Gold slate tile, with its browns, grays and golds, is the best tile in the world for hiding dirt in a mudroom,” she says. Built-in cubbies, hooks and baskets give everyone room to store coats, shoes, hats, gloves and sports equipment. “After designing the bottom cubbies with drawers for many clients, my contractor Eric Franzoni told me that after my part of the job was done, most people were taking the drawers out to leave them open for kicking off or grabbing their shoes,” she says. She’s since switched to cubbies over drawers in her mudroom designs.The wife requested a mudroom desk as a landing strip for mail and paperwork. The counter is cherry with a dark stain. A charging station overhead hides cords and provides space for juicing up phones and other electronic accessories. The hardworking room has openings to the garage, the main house and a walk-in closet.
