Room of the Month // Mudroom

With Spring (hopefully!) right around the corner, I thought March would be a great month to tap into spring cleaning mode and put together a look for a stylish and functional Mudroom.  In a far off corner of my future dream home, I would love to have a laundry/mudroom combo like the one below!  I'm sure I'm not alone when I say the act of doing laundry is something I loath, but a part of me also feels if I had a proper space with all the bells and whistles to match, I suppose I could learn to bare it :)  



Room of the Month/Mudroom

Here are some (5) essentials this magical mudroom might have...

1. A surface to fold all the clean laundry I've just done.  Personally, I know if I don't fold it right away it will end up in crunched into a ball in a basket for the next 4-6 days. Roughly.

2. Some storage for all the cleaning products, whether it's laundry related or not.  Cold weather related gear; gloves, hats, scarves.  (Side note- for me this space also acts as a hub of the house in a sense, right off the kitchen between the garage with a separate outside entrance. Hey, a girl can dream, right?!) 

3. Seating. duh.

4. Wall Hooks; for coats, bags, scarves. Again, organize and display your clutter in a way that it could pass for a relaxed lived in look. 

5. A little bit of style. Just because it's the laundry room doesn't mean it should be over looked in the personality department.  Just think about how much time you actually spend trolling around your washer and dryer. It's a great space to have some fun with and test out brighter colors you may be shying away from using throughout the rest of your home.
