A mudroom is an area built into some houses to act as a barrier between the outdoors and indoors. Especially in regions with wet, muddy winters, this type of small, specialized room can be a useful addition as it helps to keep the house clean. If you focus on their decorating aspect, you’ll realize that an appealing and functional mudroom can add quality to your home interior. There are several ideas to decorating your mudroom. First idea, decorate a mudroom walls. The mudroom’s walls should complement the neighboring rooms while still contributing to an individual design. Reference and respect the design aesthetics of the room directly adjacent to the mudroom. Then, another idea is furniture and accessories. Key pieces of furniture will make a mudroom truly useful. A bench with one or two shelves provides seating as well as storage space for shoes. You can also outfit each individual cubby with wicker baskets or decorative plastic bins.
Locker-style cabinets, complete with hooks, bench seating and shelves, for each member of the household give you another option. Complete the mudroom with functional accessories such as decorative key hooks and a cork board for the family calendar and important notes. Or you can go with signs and plaques featuring quotes, prayers, poems and funny sayings at home-goods stores.
