Mud Room Makeover: A Design Connection, Inc. Featured Project
This space is the modern definition of a multipurpose room. Laundry room, Mud room, Storage room, Doggy room. So many functions for just one room! How did we give this multi-use room such an elegant makeover? Keep reading to see how we did it!
When we renovated this Overland Park, KS home, the laundry room was also on the laundry list of areas that required a design update. In addition to housing the washer and dryer, this laundry room serves as an entryway and mudroom, as well as a stay-and-play area for the family pup. Here is the laundry room BEFORE:
Mudrooms are intended to catch and contain the mess that stems from our daily comings-and-goings. That sounds great in theory, but when put to the test of an active family, mudrooms often end up with minimum amount of mud, but a maximum amount of clutter.
Because this area was used for more than just a laundry room, I was determined to give my clients a multi-functional space that served their needs with style, comfort, and convenience.
Washable wallpaper is a fantastic choice for high traffic areas that are prone to messes, like in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and mudrooms. In addition to its amazing look, this vinyl basket weave wallpaper in silver by Phillip Jeffries was chosen for its durability and ease of cleaning.
Designed with the large under-cabinet dog kennel in mind, new cabinets were created with customized storage solutions unique to my clients’ needs. Much consideration was also put into the flooring that was chosen. My clients wanted to move away from the traditional tile that they had grown tired of but they needed the waterproof perks and ease-of-clean benefits that comes with having a tile floor; a beautiful porcelain tile was selected with thin grout lines specified.
Paired with a sink and washing basin, the deep gray quartz Caesarstone countertop adds another elegant, functional element to this new laundry room design. My clients love their new multi-functional laundry room! While doing laundry is still a chore, keeping the mudroom organized and free from clutter is now easier and more enjoyable than ever!
