Whether your mudroom is in the back of the house leading to the backyard, right in the garage, or right in the front hallway, it is an integral part of your home. If your family uses this entrance the most, it’s important to keep it tidy so everyone can find their stuff before school, work, dance lessons or hockey practice. At the same time, if this is the entrance that visitors and guests also use most often, you’ll also want it to be stylish and clean! After all, it’s the first impression they make from the inside of your home. That’s why mudroom crafts and racks are one of our favorite new DIY projects! Sure, you can buy some basic designs for your mudroom, but the beauty of how they help your home lies in how you customize them.
When it comes to any home renovation project, functional upgrades are an absolute must. Whether you’re remodeling a single room or an entire home, the focus should be on making sure that the spaces you’re creating are both beautiful and practical.
For our recent DIY mudroom makeover, we decided to focus on functional upgrades that would make the room more practical and efficient. We started by adding a few organizational elements like shelves, hooks and baskets. We also added a bench with a storage area underneath to keep shoes, backpacks, and other items neatly stowed away. These organizational upgrades made it easy to keep the mudroom looking neat and tidy.
Next, we focused on upgrading the lighting in the mudroom. We switched out the single overhead light for a more modern and efficient LED system. This allowed us to add task lighting and accent lighting to the room. The task lighting makes it easier to see while you’re getting ready in the morning, while the accent lighting adds a nice decorative touch to the space.
Finally, we upgraded the flooring in the mudroom. We replaced the existing tile with a more durable, water-resistant vinyl that is much easier to keep clean and maintain. The new flooring not only looks great, but it’s also much more practical for a room that is prone to getting wet and dirty.
Overall, we’re really pleased with the functional upgrades we made to our mudroom. These changes have made the room much more practical, efficient, and visually appealing. Whether you’re renovating a single room or an entire house, functional upgrades are an absolute must!
We wanted something that would be both visually stimulating and easy to clean. We decided to go with a bold patterned paper, in a bright blue hue. Not only did this wallpaper add a fun pop of color to the room, but it’s also easy to keep clean. Plus, the subtle texture of the wallpaper helps to absorb sound, making the room feel more insulated and cozy.
To make sure that the wallpaper was properly applied, we used a professional wallpaper hanger. We also made sure to use a high-quality paste to ensure that the wallpaper would stay in place. Once the wallpaper was up, we used a sealant to make sure it was properly protected from spills.
Overall, we’re really happy with how the wallpaper turned out. It adds a great design element to the room, while still being practical and easy to keep clean. We’re sure that the wallpaper will last for years to come and will continue to look great in the mudroom.

The Tile Floors
Tile floors are one of the most important elements. They not only provide an easy-to-clean surface, but they also add a touch of sophistication and style to the space. In this DIY mudroom reveal, we’ll be taking a look at how to install and care for tile floors.
To begin, it’s important to understand the different types of tile that can be used for floors. Ceramic tiles are the most common, and come in a variety of sizes, colors, and textures. Porcelain tiles are also popular, as they can be durable and more resistant to scratches and stains. Natural stone tiles are another option, and can add a unique and beautiful look to the space.
Once you’ve determined the type of tile you want to use, you’ll need to determine the size and layout of your tile floor. If you’re creating a mudroom, you’ll likely want to use a large tile that covers the entire area. If you’re creating a smaller space, you may want to use smaller tiles in a checkerboard or mosaic pattern.
Once the layout is determined, it’s time to actually install the tile. This part of the process can be tricky, so it’s best to consult with a professional if you’re not confident in your DIY skills. Generally, you’ll need to prepare the area by laying down a layer of backer board and thinset mortar. Then, you’ll need to carefully lay the tiles into place.
Once the tile is installed, it’s important to seal the grout and clean the tiles regularly. This will help keep the tile in good condition and prevent staining and discoloration. Regular sweeping and vacuuming will also help keep the tile looking its best.
Overall, tile floors are a great way to add style and sophistication to any mudroom. With the right tile and the right installation, you can create a beautiful and durable floor that will last for
years to come.
I wanted to make sure the lighting was both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It had to be bright enough to illuminate the entire room but also provide a cozy atmosphere. After a lot of research and experimentation, I finally settled on two options – recessed lighting and pendant lights.
Recessed lighting was the ideal choice for this space because it provides a lot of light without taking up valuable floor or wall space. I chose to use a combination of 3-inch and 4-inch recessed lights, spaced evenly throughout the room. This ensures that the room is well-lit and every corner is illuminated.
For the pendant lights, I picked two vintage-inspired fixtures in a rich brass finish. They add a touch of warmth to the room and give it a more inviting atmosphere. The pendant lights hang from the ceiling and are suspended over the seating area, making it perfect for reading or relaxing.
Overall, I am so pleased with how the lighting turned out! It adds a nice touch to the room and provides the perfect amount of light. I am so glad I took the time to research and find the right lighting options for this space. It was definitely worth the effort!
The Bench Cushion and Pillows
It allows for a comfortable space for putting on and taking off shoes, and it adds an inviting touch to the room. The bench cushion and pillows featured in this mudroom are just the right combination of comfort and style.
The bench cushion is made of a soft, durable fabric that is perfect for everyday use. It is filled with a high-density foam that provides comfort and support. The size of the cushion is strictly tailored to the dimensions of the bench, making it a perfect fit. The cushion is also reversible, allowing for easy maintenance and cleaning.
The pillows add a bit of extra comfort and color to the seating area. They are made of a velvet material that is soft to the touch. The bright colors of the pillows add a vibrant touch to the room, while still staying subtle and complementary to the overall design.
The bench cushion and pillows featured in this mudroom provide a comfortable and inviting seating area. They are the perfect combination of style and comfort, making them a great addition to any mudroom.
This is especially true when it comes to our recent DIY mudroom reveal. We wanted to give this space a luxurious and functional look, and the accessories really helped us achieve that.
First, we added a beautiful tufted bench with a storage basket underneath. This is a great spot for pulling off shoes and storing other items that you don’t want cluttering up the space. We also added a coat rack to hang jackets and umbrellas.
Next, we added a few decorative accents. We hung a beautiful wreath on the wall and added a few plants to add life to the space. We also added a few mirrors and a framed photograph to give the space a personalized feel.
Finally, we added a few organizational pieces. We hung a magnetic board to keep track of keys and added a few baskets to store hats, gloves, and other items.
In the end, the accessories were the key to making this DIY mudroom reveal a success. They added the perfect touch of luxury, functionality, and personalization to the space.
