Adding a mudroom to your home is quickly becoming a favourite inclusion in Australian interior design. Essentially a zone where you can remove shoes, jackets, bags etc when you come home, it keeps the rest of your home tidy. Incorporating a mudroom space within your laundry is a great idea as the two spaces complement each other – allowing you to wash dirty clothes, clean muddy boots, and store away bags.
All of the country homes in last years season of The Block presented mudrooms with their laundries- which is perfect for country living but also works equally well for city dwellers too. Include a seating nook within your layout to allowing popping your shoes on a breeze and have storage zones for storing sporting equipment, school bags, umbrellas – all those things that you need easy access to but don’t always have space to store in the rest of the house. You might also like to add decorative boards or panelling behind your seating nook and add hooks to hang bags, coats, or hats.
