5 ways to keep your mudroom from looking like a mudroom
Friday, March 25, 2016
The mudroom doesn't have to be a bland, often dirty room. Here are 5 ways to make the mudroom as stylish as the rest of your home.
1. Install classic finishes
We are loving this mudroom makeover shared over on Apartment Therapy. This homeowner took a bland space brought it to life with a trendy light fixture and vibrant accessories. Satin Brass lighting is the perfect touch with the black door and Satin Nickel hardware. For more tips on mixing hardware the right way, check out our guide to mixing finishes.
2. Add unique flooring
Resist the urge to stick with a boring neutral flooring if you want to give your mudroom a touch of something special. Who knows - having something unique you'll want to show off may motivate you to keep this space even tidier. Sarah M. Dorsey creates the perfect entrance by installing her flooring in a herringbone pattern to mix things up. *Spoiler: This clean space also features the perfect finishing touch with Schlage's Latitude levers in Polished Nickel.
3. Place a cute rug and planter
You don't have to opt for time consuming projects like new flooring or light fixtures. Simply place a new rug and houseplant to make this space feel homey in no time. We're loving the combination of colors from Not Just a Housewife with Satin Nickel door hardware.
4. Create built--in storage
The best entryways - whether at the front or back of the house - always remain clean and organized. Add some built-in storage so you can have a place for everything when you step in the door and avoid having shoes and mail all over your home. Get the details on this Cape Cod home from Home Bunch.
5. Add a touch of glam
Don't let the name "mudroom" fool you into thinking this room doesn't deserve a touch of glam. When it comes to your personal style, anything goes, including a crystal chandelier in an eclectic farmhouse mudroom. See more of this adorable home from Style Me Pretty.
