    Ok thanks. Was just hoping you could tell me how exactly the floating bench was built. Thanks.
  • bhadams82
    Sure looks like baseboard heat under the bench.

    Ifs fine to adjust the height of the bench according to your height
  • ingoldberg
    How deep is the bench? And how deep is the shelf? The proportions are great. Thank you!

    Do you have any other pictures of this mudroom? Also, was this room added on or was it a re-do on the existing house ? If an add-on, can you tell me how much it cost? We are thinking of doing something similar between our house and garage, and perhaps adding a washer/dryer on the opposite side.

    Hi there. I just found out from the architect the tile was purchased from "The Tile Shop" in Plymouth, MN. Unfortunately, it was selected from a pile of discontinued tile they had on special discount. The architect told me that it has a "flamed" finish on the top. Sorry about this disappointing news.
  • PRO
    That's OK - -thanks Rik!! I can at least gather that the "dark grey" is very beautiful in this room. I just picked out a dark grey tile for my laundry room inspired by this picture

    The ceiling appears to be a "ponderosa" pine species or something similar in the pine family (often referred to as "yellow" pine) and it looks like the original builder/carpenter selected the grains to form this blended pattern. beautifully done.

    Very nice idea. Can that be adjusted for a small corridor of 120 cm of width?

    Lovely design! I am planning to build an alcove floating bench just like this one (without the side shelves), 46'' wide. Will 2''x4'' wood cleats screwed to metal studs in the wall be enough to provide a stable seating surface, or would I need to attach a brace to the studs, inside the wall? Would a torsion top be needed to keep it from sagging? Thanks!

    I don't feel comfortable giving you that advice without having our professional carpenter seeing the space and suggesting what type of backing would be necessary in your case.

    The bench was existing when I came on to the project, but I believe it is maple. It is supported by 3/4" stock material that runs the length and on the sides underneath the top.

    You are correct, the ceiling was original bead board. The wall is 4 x 8 sheets of bead board painted. Thank you.

    If I am understand our question correctly, there is many variables in determining wood v.s. laminate. I suggest you go to a flooring store and ask the flooring specialist. They will ask you several questions and help determine what is best in your situation

    I would really like to help you with a design consulation. However therre are so many factors that come into play when selecting paint, that I would not be able to give you my educated opinion without seeing the space as well as the lighing in the room as well as adjoining areas

    Remodeling your home is an investment in not only your home but also in the quality of life you lead as well as your happiness. Projects as well as budgets are all over the board depending on the materials you select. Getting professional advice can guide you through the process as well as assist you in staying within a budget. Making mistakes along the way can be costly. Professionals can help avoid those.

    Hood morning,

    Thank you for your inquiry on this project. The openings are approximately 16"w x 12" d x 12"h(the bottom cubby is 16"W x 12" d x 14"h). If you are designing this from scratch, we would suggest finding the basakets first and then design the cubby size around them.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions

          Alison Hodgson added this to Clean Routine: Housework Strategies the Whole Family Can ShareApr 27, 2013

          Grab a basket. Granted, there are times when you just need to get things picked up. Torey teaches out of her home, and because of the layout, the kitchen, the dining room, the upstairs hall, her daughters' bedroom, the family room and the bathroom all have the possibility of being viewed by clients. She has a couple baskets where she can quickly stash her family's belongings, which they can then put away at their leisure.

          Becky Harris added this to 17 Ways to Make Better Use of Entryway CornersDec 26, 2012

          This bench runs right into the corner. There are shelves and hooks along the wall, and the corner adds a nice clear and open element.

          Bneato Professional Organizing added this to 3 Sneaky Storage SpotsApr 10, 2012

          Hooks are an oldie but a goody and cannot be used enough in my opinion. I love the classic look of hooks and their ability to be placed just about anywhere.Notice the high shelf in this image. Not only is it functional, but the items placed on it make the space feel cozy — score!

          Suzy Cacic added this to Create a Stylish, Family-Friendly Home for the HolidaysDec 11, 2011

          A mudroom is a savior when it comes to managing kids with dirty boots, school bags and wet coats.Install hooks to hang jackets and dog leashes for easy access. Woven baskets with labels make it easy for children to store and organize their outdoor gear.If you do not currently have a mudroom, you can buy an indoor entryway bench for storing umbrellas, mittens and scarves that children usually throw around.
