This time of year in the Northeast, yards, roads, farms, and job sites are a muddy mess. That means there is a good possibility that dogs, cats, kids, and adults will be tracking mud into the house. The best defense is a good mud room.
In the design of these mud rooms, we try to make them bright, comfortable, and above all, functional. In one home, the entry/mud room 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 understanding how the owners plan to use these rooms and their relationship to the exterior and the rest of the house.
