What Houzz contributors are saying:
A large banquette features drawers underneath for placemats and napkins. Alex Protzman, one of the homeowners, is a woodworker and designed and built the wood tabletop with green base. Bricks salvaged on-site were used for the floor in the mudroom. Each family member gets a wire basket for winter gear storage.Table: custom, Alys Design; leather chairs: Cab, Cassina; banquette fabric: Perennials
What Is Shiplap? A shiplap board is milled with a halved groove called a rabbet, so the edges connect snugly together, one on top of the other, leaving a distinctive reveal line between boards. It installs in a slightly different manner than tongue and groove paneling, where the tongue of one board sets inside the channel of the adjacent board. Tongue and groove paneling can provide a tighter seal, and less of a visible reveal, between boards.
Brick flooring can be laid in several patterns and is available in a wide variety of styles and colors. Brick looks great paired with shiplap, another material that stands the test of time and looks just fine with a less-than-perfect finish.Brick Floors: Could This Durable Material Work for Your House?
6. Opt for mobile storage. Wire storage is less clunky-looking than closed storage and is often lighter to carry, which is handy for toting around laundry as well as carrying tools and toys. If you’re able to fix your wire storage to a wall, it will keep things at an accessible height and make cleaning the floor below easier. Try hanging the baskets on hooks so they can be lifted off and you can easily transport the contents to a desk or another room when necessary.
