Mudroom before and after…

We finally have a finished mud room and it is fabulous!  We no longer walk into a closet coming in from our garage, and now we have hooks and baskets to catch everything and it all stays in one place.

When we first moved into this house, the laudry space was this awkward hallway off the kitchen that opened as a second door to our office.  It had two coat closets and a small laundry area that was poorly set up, with the dryer venting into the basement.  Something had to be done.  Brian proposed knocking down the walls that formed the two closets – we didn’t need them because we already have a large hall closet in the our front foyer.  The revised plan was so much more functional.  It took about 3 total months to complete, but Brian and his dad did every inch.  I helped about 5%.  I painted the baseboards and helped paint the walls.

Check out the before and after – we love it!  Here is the dysfunctional before….

Non-functioning laundry space before - the doors wouldn't close and the dryer was vented into the basement.

And the clean and fresh after…

Our nice clean mudroom

The washer/dryer is behind a door in the mudroom with plenty of added storage shelves.

We added low hooks for Claire so that she can hang her own things up.

I hope you enjoy the transformation!
