Mudrooms are all about function—a place for homeowners to unpack their bags, dust off the day's dirt, and put up their shoes before entering the house. Mudrooms must be equipped with the best materials for withstanding mud, water, shoe stains, and in some cases pets, and offer a lot of storage options for backpacks, laundry, and household items in what is often a small space.
But that doesn't mean they can't be stylish as well, and features like decorative hooks, relaxing colors, sophisticated finishes, and clever built in shelving units and drawers make mudrooms the perfect room to welcome owners inside after a long day.
BUILDER, with some help from our sister sites Custom Home and Multifamily Executive, has pulled together the eleven best mudrooms and entryways that will make buyers excited to come home. From mudrooms with hidden dog-dining stations to built-in floor wash basins for messy shoes, these rooms create the perfect place to handle outside's chaos before entering the house.
