Filled with racks of shoes, coat hangers, and additional storage, the mudroom is essential in keeping a home free of clutter and organized. If you have been contemplating the idea of having a stylish space that is multifunctional, the following mudroom decorating ideas could help you create the perfect mudroom space.
We love a rustic touch anywhere in the home. However, there is something about rustic décor that just feels very cozy and warm. Add rustic bits that feel vintage yet have a modern aesthetics to them. Use wood furniture that has been painted in a shabby manner for the perfect combination.
Blue Space with Farmhouse Décor
Farmhouse decor could be simple and beautiful when it is done properly. Use a shade of blue that compliments your decor already while still being sleek and charming. Additionally, you want to have dark wood as part of your decor for that classic farmhouse element.
Use a blue bench with space underneath so you can display your shoes while still keeping them organized. Pair your bench with darker hues and comfortable throw pillows to bring a farmhouse feel that is cozy and structured.
Sleek and Modern
The beauty of having a mudroom is the fact that you can have as little or as much storage as the space can handle. The idea is to use enough storage that your desired items are put away and contained yet sleek enough that the room is always clean and cozy.
Keep the space sleek and modern with crisp lines on your storage pieces. Additionally, you want to keep the décor to a minimum and use simple colors that pair well with contrasting colors such as white, black, and neutrals.
When you have a built-in bench in your mudroom you can have a multifunctional space. The room can double as a mudroom and as a small entertainment space. With that being said you might even want to add throw pillows for comfort and additional storage cubbies.
A built-in bench is always a good idea for a mudroom due to its multipurpose use. You can use it to sit on and as a space to place shoes underneath. Add a built-in custom cushion bench for a contemporary twist that is very much traditional.
Add chic bits in the room to allow it to feel more than just a mudroom. Doing so will create a space that can be used for extra seating, not only for storing shoes and/or jackets. Add good lighting to brighten the space and further push the multifunctional idea.
Why make your mudroom a “one use” only room when you can have a multipurpose/multifunctional space. Use it as an extra seating area, a mudroom and/or even a reading nook. The ideas are endless when you get creative and construct a space that is personal to you and your home.
We love the idea of a pastel paint being the main focal point of the room, especially when you use a shade such as stone gray. Stone gray is not only a pastel hue but its a neutral with a hint of something extra.
Allow your space to make a big statement by having your mudroom a pale color. This is an excellent form of adding color to the room without using daring hues that may take away from your décor. We love colors such as stone, lavender, ice blue, pink and/or even yellow.
Pop of Color
Bring your personality to the forefront of your mudroom with pops of color that bring vibrancy to the space. The key is working with colors that create a contrasting appeal between the hues you already have going on and your decorating style.
Focus on the Floor
Intricate flooring is quite essential when you have a neutral, simple space as it brings the area back to life. Consider using bold tiles with a unique pattern and/or with daring color for that modern look that simply works.
If you already have a mudroom that you love but want to give it that pop of an upgrade, opt for a focus on your floors. Change up the tiling can be exactly what the space needs for a fresh, stylish look without overly changing the décor.
Brass bits are perfect for an elegant appeal that has a vintage aesthetics to it. You can add it in as the accent hue that is used throughout the entire room. Consider changing your knobs for brass ones and having a brass light fixture to further enhance the metallic element.
Add brass elements for an elegant appeal that brings the space a stylish twist. There is something sexy about the brass elements that feel very modern. Pair with shades of navy for the perfect combination.
Fill the room entirely with storage for a compact space that is functional at the same time. Pair with a bench or even closet space for that classic mudroom aesthetic. Pair with intricate lighting to bring beauty and a contemporary twist.
Storage is key in a mudroom as it allows the room to have the ability to store all the necessary items. Having an abundance of storage will make decorating easier and modern while putting away what’s needed to be hidden from display.
The mudroom might become your next favorite space in your home if you choose to use one or more of these stylish decorating ideas.
