A mud room or laundry room is that room in the house that you don’t really think about showing off to guests and it’s just there to throw extra coats, wipe your shoes and give the dogs a bath. Did you know there are now fun ideas out there to make your mud room beautiful? You don’t have to be afraid to show off your mud room or laundry room anymore.

Guests will notice how elegant it is when you have beautiful backsplash, dark colors and create some built-in features. It will be efficient and enjoyable to do laundry again when you follow these tips. Don’t hide these areas from guests anymore. Here is a look at how to deck out these rooms in your home.

Organization & Efficiency

This area will work better when you have it organized and make the room easy to work in. Add custom built-in cubbies for organizing shoes, coats, gloves, documents and more. Have an area to throw the keys on the wall and put mail on your way in. Add matching wicker baskets in the built-in cubby system to easily grab your items and add a great look to your design.

Organize with a large counter space for folding laundry and add built-in shelves to put laundry baskets to separate the dirty laundry from the folded laundry. The kids can easily grab the laundry basket to put clothes away and bring back the empty basket.

Have a spot to put hang dry clothes and install a small fan to help speed up the drying process. Then, add a pull-out ironing board and a spot to put items found in pockets and a trash can for lint. You’ll have all of your essential laundry needs tucked away and easy to access when the time comes.

Make a pet station by adding a dog washing area with three walls surrounding it to keep water contained. Make a custom cat box built into a cabinet and a built-in pet bed. Your pets will know where to go to stay out of the house when things get too muddy.

Beauty

Once you’ve organized, cleaned it up and add efficient features, you can focus on making it beautiful. Add moody, dark colors to the room like a bold orange or purple. Be sure to allow natural light to come in through the windows and have enough lighting to see what you’re doing.

Add technology and entertainment whether it be a music player, a TV or anything else to keep you entertained while you fold laundry. Add a backsplash so that you can really spice up the wall behind the washing machines and dog bath station. Add a beautiful tile floor to match and you’ll be in great shape.

Use these tips to make your mud room or laundry room more efficient, more organized, more beautiful and something you’ll want to show off to guests. Search New Construction Homes In Michigan to find one for yourself with these beautiful ideas above.
