Form & Function? How to create a designer Mudroom/Laundry room
1. Maximise storage
2. Choose durable materials
Mudrooms and laundry rooms tend to be areas where dirt and moisture are common, it's important to choose materials that are durable and easy to clean. We offer a great range of polyurethane wall panels which are durable, water resistant and hard wearing, making them an ideal choice for these rooms. The smooth linear designs make cleaning easy with the wipe of a cloth and the water-resistant quality of the material means no moisture related issues such as warping or damp.
3. Add a pop of colour
While practicality is key in these spaces, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Functional rooms can be beautiful too and adding a pop of colour will add personality and interest to your space. We recommend being brave and using a bold paint shade you would not normally go for!
4. Incorporate functional elements
In addition to storage, it's important to consider other functional elements that can make life easier in the mudroom/laundry room. This can include a built-in bench for putting on and taking off shoes, a sink for rinsing off muddy boots, or a countertop for folding laundry.
5. Don't forget the details
The finishing touches can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of the mudroom/laundry room. If you want to freshen up your existing utility room or boot room but don’t want to completely renovate, we recommend adding new hardware to your cabinets and doors. This is an instant and easy way to breathe new life into your space as well as keeping it up to date and modern.
By following these tips, you can create a practical and stylish mudroom/laundry room that is both functional and visually appealing. With a little bit of planning and attention to detail, you can transform these often-overlooked spaces into functional and designer-worthy areas of your home.
