7 small mudroom decor tips and 23 examples

Most of us have small mudrooms and entryways, it’s pretty difficult to decorate them in a proper way to accommodate everything necessary and make it look good. Let’s have a look at some tips and examples to turn your mudroom into a stylish one and to store what you want.

Choose Light Colors And Shades

Remember: the darker the space is, the smaller it looks, and besides, light shades reflect the light. So if you have a tiny mudroom, there’s no need painting it in dark shades, keep it white, neutral or pastel and you’ll love the result.

Built-In Solutions

Seating plays an important role in a mudroom, prompting guests to sit and remove dirty shoes. Choose a built-in bench and use it for storage, too, putting boots under it or as a spot to place items to grab as you walk out the door. You can also build in some cabinets around.

Storage Benches

A storage bench is a must for every mudroom, I think. There are storage benches with compartments and drawers to hide your hoses, umbrellas and other stuff, and you can always use the top to leave your bag or keys.

Cabinet Solutions

Tall cabinets make the most of even the smallest hall space. Inside the cabinets, there’s plenty of space for kids to stash coats and scarves. The cabinet door neatly conceals everything from sight and your entryway looks uncluttered, that maximizes the space, at least visually.

Open Storage

Open nooks and shelves give instant access to whatever is stored in a mudroom. They are perfect for small spaces because they don’t look bulky, give necessary storage space and make all your items a part of the décor.

Pegged Storage

Using wall pegs is a way to organize outerwear or anything you want. Just attach pegboards where you want, decorate them somehow, for example, paint or make prints and attach shelves, hooks and anything you need to store.

Maximize The Light

Mudrooms often lack light, so you should maximize it to see everything you need and besides, well-lit rooms look bigger, so light up every corner. Use wall-mounted and pendant lamps to save that precious space, or go for several smart floor solutions.
