We cut out the middle box of the cubbies to visually connect this room to the rest of the house. Now people can see who is at the door.

As seen in this photo, the front to back view offers homeowners and guests alike a direct view and access to the deck off the back of the house. In addition to holding access to the garage, this space holds two closets. One, the homeowners are using as a coat closest and the other, a pantry closet. You also see a custom built in unit with a bench and storage. There is also access to a powder room, a bathroom that was relocated from middle of the 1st floor layout. Relocating the bathroom allowed us to open up the floor plan, offering a view directly into and out of the playroom and dining room.

The home has a Genkan entry - a feature of Japanese houses – where the exterior stone paving continues into the entry, and then the interior floor raises 6” – where one then walks with their shoes off. Banding the top of the first floor is an 18-ich tall slot window that wraps around all sides. This window acts to create a visual separation between the box volume of the second floor and the walls of the first floor. It also allows for interior views to the tree canopies beyond, and to bring in soft light. Photographer: Joe Fletcher

This side entry is most-used in this busy family home with 4 kids, lots of visitors and a big dog . Re-arranging the space to include an open center Mudroom area, with elbow room for all, was the key. Kids' PR on the left, walk-in pantry next to the Kitchen, and a double door coat closet add to the functional storage.

We all have a disparate collection of boots, coats, umbrellas and bags that need a spot to reside. The mudroom is the organized, stylish answer to all of that clutter. Whether you have a distinct transition space in your home or you simply want to add function to your entry, consider the following mudroom ideas to get you started.

1. Transform a Hallway

While mudrooms were originally back entrances separate from the front door, you can use any entry in a similar way. Simply add wall hooks or shelves to your hall and you’ll enjoy the same organizational benefits.

2. Add a Bench

Another way to add ease and function to any ordinary entryway is to add a mudroom bench. This can be the perfect spot for taking shoes on and off, or simply placing bags and coats. If you’ve got the space, opt for a stately hall tree, which includes a bench and shelves or wall hooks built together.

3. Use the Laundry Room

In many homes, the garage entrance goes straight through the laundry room, making it the perfect space for a de facto mudroom. Simply add in accessible storage wherever you can: think open shelves, wicker baskets or wall hooks.

4. Keep It in the Garage

If you often enter your home through the garage, try adding a shoe bench, door mat or even built-in shelving so you can keep the clutter out of your home entirely.

5. Go Bold with Tile

Don’t forget to have a little fun with your mudroom design. Brightly colored or bold mosaic tile can demarcate the space and create a warm and welcoming mood.

6. Choose an Accent Color

Adding color and decor to your walls is another great way to bring character to the space. For example, you might install white wainscoting or shiplap on the lower half of your walls, and paint the upper half blue.

7. Hang a Mirror

If you’re looking for mudroom ideas for small spaces, try hanging a decorative wall mirror. The space will feel bigger and you’ll have a spot to quickly check your look before heading out.

8. Make Use of Bins

Visually appealing bins are the glue behind mudroom organization, as they’ll give you space to toss dirty shoes or miscellaneous gear without seeing the clutter. Choose bins made of metal, wicker or wood to complement your space.
