Inspiring Mud Rooms

Last year, we helped a friend redo her mud room.  I shouldn't really say 'redo'.  It was more of an empty shell made into a beautiful, functional space for her family.

The best thing about the finished room is that she loves it, her family loves it, and it is a perfect place to hang coats and leave wet shoes.


Here was the 'before'.  Very, very rough...
We added a pantry on one side.  Later we added bi-fold doors here.

From a very rough cement slab to great looking tile on the floor.
A year later and it still looks beautiful. 

Recently I found several other mudrooms that I loved on the Hometalk website.  There is a ton of inspiration on there and a great group of people supporting each other.  I  learned how to create a 'clipboard' on the site and love how I can go back and access all of the posts that I find inspiring. 
 I'd love for you to check out my Hometalk Clipboard here:

As you'll see on my clipboard, I am quite partial to board and batten or beadboard on the walls, and crisp, white paint.  :)
Thanks for your visit!


  1. Wow it turned out fantastic. I love our mudroom space too, but it seems to get cluttered up easily with all the coat hooks. Not so picture perfect all the time.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment.
