Melissa from 320 Sycamore created a long seating area in her mudroom by pairing two benches side by side. She made the benches from an old coffee table she cut in two! Each family member can get their own basket to store their belongings.
I’m in love with this simple mudroom area! Purchase a shelf and coat rack from the hardware store and accessorize it with small framed numbers printed from your computer, baskets for storage, artwork and collectibles. Not only is it functional for a small family but looks great! This room was done by Amy at Home Remedies Rx who lived in my area and has since moved back out west.
Here is a drool-worthy mudroom! It’s the small details that make this room so stunning. Notice the bead board walls, paneled ceiling, the arch motif repeated throughout the design and the stenciled floor. Sliding open drawers hide shoes and allow for easy access and air circulation.
If you aren’t a fan of exposed storage, try this option. Large lockers hide coat and clutter away from view. Instead of plain doors, create a family calendar or message board by painting the doors with chalk board paint.

So many options. Nothing like a great mudroom. Wish I had one too 🙂
thank you so much! this really helps me get an idea on how to do my mud room with a little piece from every picture! can’t wait!
We live in Montana in a home that we built (and I designed) and we planned a nice, tidy mudroom off of the garage. However, I have to laugh, because it still doesn’t hold all of coats and shoes. With two teenage children who have shoes that are bigger/larger than ours, we seem to always be battling the mountain of shoes/boots/flip flops/water sandals that pile up under the coat hooks. I still have two (LARGE) storage bins in my basement for all the off season hats, coats, umbrellas, mittens, scarves galore, boots. Every time the season’s change, I lug the storage bins upstairs and re-organize everything. I realize now that real mudrooms are launching pads, messy, used to the max, and so awesome to have.
