Country Laundry Room/Mud Room

Over the years, we have designed many mudrooms.  Sometimes they are designed as a room dedicated to getting mud off of kids, pets, and everyone coming into the side door of the home.  Other times, they serve light duty as entries with coat hooks and a place to sit and take off or put on shoes.

In the design of these mudrooms, we try to make them bright, comfortable, and above all, functional.  In one home, the entry/mudroom is off a paved path, and in another house you step right out of the garden and the first room you meet is the mudroom.  The key is to understand  how the owners plan to use these rooms and their relationship to the exterior and the rest of the house.
