Once they had the location, they found a builder to work with and that was Harbor View Custom Builders. From their they were referred to us for their design needs. It was our pleasure to help our client design a beautiful, two story vacation home.

Penza Bailey Architects
Penza Bailey Architects was contacted to update the main house to suit the next generation of owners, and also expand and renovate the guest apartment. The renovations included a new mudroom and playroom to accommodate the couple and their three very active boys, creating workstations for the boys’ various activities, and renovating several bathrooms. The awkwardly tall vaulted ceilings in the existing great room and dining room were scaled down with lowered tray ceilings, and a new fireplace focal point wall was incorporated in the great room. In addition to the renovations to the focal point of the home, the Owner’s pride and joy includes the new billiard room, transformed from an underutilized living room. The main feature is a full wall of custom cabinetry that hides an electronically secure liquor display that rises out of the cabinet at the push of an iPhone button. In an unexpected request, a new grilling area was designed to accommodate the owner’s gas grill, charcoal grill and smoker for more cooking and entertaining options. This home is definitely ready to accommodate a new generation of hosting social gatherings. Mitch Allen Photography

We all have a disparate collection of boots, coats, umbrellas and bags that need a spot to reside. The mudroom is the organized, stylish answer to all of that clutter. Whether you have a distinct transition space in your home or you simply want to add function to your entry, consider the following mudroom ideas to get you started.

1. Transform a Hallway

While mudrooms were originally back entrances separate from the front door, you can use any entry in a similar way. Simply add wall hooks or shelves to your hall and you’ll enjoy the same organizational benefits.

2. Add a Bench

Another way to add ease and function to any ordinary entryway is to add a mudroom bench. This can be the perfect spot for taking shoes on and off, or simply placing bags and coats. If you’ve got the space, opt for a stately hall tree, which includes a bench and shelves or wall hooks built together.

3. Use the Laundry Room

In many homes, the garage entrance goes straight through the laundry room, making it the perfect space for a de facto mudroom. Simply add in accessible storage wherever you can: think open shelves, wicker baskets or wall hooks.

4. Keep It in the Garage

If you often enter your home through the garage, try adding a shoe bench, door mat or even built-in shelving so you can keep the clutter out of your home entirely.

5. Go Bold with Tile

Don’t forget to have a little fun with your mudroom design. Brightly colored or bold mosaic tile can demarcate the space and create a warm and welcoming mood.

6. Choose an Accent Color

Adding color and decor to your walls is another great way to bring character to the space. For example, you might install white wainscoting or shiplap on the lower half of your walls, and paint the upper half blue.

7. Hang a Mirror

If you’re looking for mudroom ideas for small spaces, try hanging a decorative wall mirror. The space will feel bigger and you’ll have a spot to quickly check your look before heading out.

8. Make Use of Bins

Visually appealing bins are the glue behind mudroom organization, as they’ll give you space to toss dirty shoes or miscellaneous gear without seeing the clutter. Choose bins made of metal, wicker or wood to complement your space.
