I’ve never had a real deal mudroom. Our current house has the worlds worst drop off your coat space. A set of hooks behind a door and another set of hooks on the wall going into the laundry room. No place for snow boots or wet gloves or umbrellas.
Now I will.
The plan calls for one end to be glass vestibule before coming into the actual mudroom.
Something, but not exactly, like this. But pretty close. Now the UPS driver can drop off boxes inside the vestibule or the mailman can put a parcel in there too. For now, any oversize delivery from the mailman sits at the front door, albeit under an overhang, but nothing covered or protected from wind or sideways rain. Ask me if I know what happens to unattended mail left that way!!
The actual mudroom cabinetry won’t be chosen until the space is built (even though the architect spec’d some cabinetry, I told him just to throw things in and then I’ll see what the space needs once it’s built.)
I’m thinking I want a landing ledge for when I come in from the all new ATTACHED garage (only had one of those once before!) and want to drop something down.
Definitely want plenty of closed storage. Who needs to see ratty boots or coats?
This is my favorite look although I’m really not a basket person. I’ve been a basket case, but I’m not one to place baskets around the house for things.
To say I’ve been saving photos and room ideas for a long time is a slight understatement. 😂😂
A dutch door is going in somewhere too and I had the definitive photo saved, but can I find it now??? No.
PS: Cablevision up and running. I was on the phone this morning for THREE HOURS with a tech who basically started over. The two previous techs and the remote assistance to get the boxes registered and working went nowhere. Finally. Done.
