Here is the secret to crafting a functional and beautiful mudroom: focus on organization, flow, and decorating with color. Although this tiny room is a pass-through space, you will want to provide its decoration the same style and care as you might a foyer. In most houses, the mudroom is similar to a casual foyer, the informal entryway for all of your friends and family. That is why decorating the mudroom is crucial.
A beautiful, rich blue such as Waterscape by Behr will set the tone for this gorgeous traditional-style room. Utilizing Polished by Behr for the bottom part of the walls provides the illusion of wainscoting and may make a tiny mudroom appear bigger. You’ll catch a glimpse of Grape Vine by Behr inside the adjacent room, and bench top inside the mudroom is painted the exact same color as a transition which eases people from space to space.
Anjou Pear by Sherwin-Williams is a fruity, modern gold tone which would warm up the environment of any mudroom. Utilize creamy white trim and black accents with Anjou Pear for a relaxed, classic style in an inviting mudroom.
Benjamin Moore’s Picture Perfect is an airy and light blue with a touch of green undertone which provides it an aqua, beachy quality. A sweet blue such as this is perfect for brightening up a darker mudroom which sees a ton of action on a gloomy winter afternoon. Coupled with light or dark woods and white, creamy trim, Picture Perfect may work with a modern or traditional style.
The good thing about a mudroom is that you do not need to follow the typical rules of design as you are decorating one. Within every other space of your house, you’ll work with a color scheme which ties it to adjacent spaces. For your mudroom, a delicious violet shade such as Obi Lilac by Sherwin-Williams does not need to match your living room...or any other space.
On rainy days, gray mudrooms may dampen your spirits. If you like the appearance of gray, yet you want something that has a bit more energy, Beach Glass by Benjamin Moore might be the solution. Beach Glass is a watery, muted, moody green that has classic gray undertones. Utilize generous light-colored accents, as well as white trim or beadboard, and the soft green is going to turn the mudroom into a wintery oasis.
