The mudroom; it’s the first thing people see as they enter your home and also the most high-traffic area. A mudroom should not only compliment the design of your home, but it should also be very functional for everyday essentials. Make a statement with custom cabinetry that you yourself can design and install.
A great place to start is with IKEA cabinets. They have so many different cabinet box sizes to choose from that’ll fit your home. You can elevate the design of the IKEA cabinet with cabinet door fronts from The Door Maker. Choose from 28 cabinet door panels and over 150 colours. You can order side panels/gables to cover the exposed sides of the IKEA cabinets to make everything look seamless.
For a sense of organization, keep these key elements in mind when designing your mudroom:
- Hooks to hang coats, purses, hats, and backpacks.
- Bench for seating. It’ll make putting on and taking off your shoes really easy and quick.
- Built-in cabinets for storing seasonal wear.
This mudroom design is simply stunning. It was a DIY project taken on by one of our customers. What we love most about this is how she paired these two colours. It’s light and bright with a touch of drama. The upper cabinets feature one of our newest colours, Walnut Ombre. It’s black with a hint of grey; it has knots and a heavy grain. The lower cabinets are in White Portuna. It’s light chiffon white with a dark grain. Both colours have a textured finish that looks and feels like wood.
She chose a very modern cabinet door panel, the Slanted profile. It’s a flat panel with a sharp edge that has a 30-degree angle.
Having a well-designed mudroom can help keep you organized throughout our changing seasons.
