These mud rooms have way more than just a bench. Think walk-in closets, grocery storage, powder baths, and more. Click here to see more plans with mud rooms.

Storage Is a Snap


Connecting the garage to the main house is an impressive utility zone in this beautifully executed Colonial-style home from Visbeen Architects. Storage lines the mud room, with the laundry room on one side (no need to walk through it to enter the house). Straight ahead, the pantry waits, making grocery unloading a snap. The rest of the plan is just as smart: the spacious kitchen connects to the formal dining room through the pantry, and flows naturally into the hearth area. Additionally, the main floor offers a private study and a screened porch. Upstairs you'll find all four bedrooms, including the lavish master suite. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Everything at Hand


Everything is well-organized in this family-friendly plan, starting with extra storage in the garage. In the mud room entry, cubbies sit to one side, the walk-in closet is straight ahead, and the laundry room and powder bath are handy but can be closed off from view. The kitchen takes center stage inside with a snack bar counter. Four bedrooms occupy the second level, including the master suite and its long walk-in closet.

Hardworking Layout


It’s hard to look away from the terrific kitchen in this great plan, but turn your attention to the mud room for a minute: With the laundry room upstairs, this hardworking space is devoted to a pantry, walk-in closet, and the powder bath. Elsewhere in the plan, a screened porch boasts a fireplace to warm up cool nights; the great room offers one too, and the library near the front makes a great home office. Upstairs, three bedrooms (including the luxurious master suite) access the versatile bonus space. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Three Ways to the Mud Room


With three ways to enter this mud room (come in from the two-bay garage, the separate third bay, or a side door), this space will see a lot of action—and it’s ready. A bench and laundry facilities reside in the main section, and easy access to the walk-in pantry is available further in. Practical features continue throughout the home. An efficient home office, brightened by two sets of windows, sits to the right of the foyer. The kitchen boasts an island snack bar and adjoins a nook that opens to a covered patio. Sleeping quarters consist of the first-floor master suite (including a spectacular bath) and two bedrooms and bonus space upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
