Some questions and answers
Can a mudroom be in the front?
A mudroom can be in any room, but most often they are placed in either a garage or at your front door. But, with a little creativity and design eye, you can turn just about any space into a functional mudroom. And you don’t have to spend a fortune on custom doors or cabinets: You can even create your own for less than $100! (See above for inspiration.)
Is a mud room the same as a foyer?
The foyer is an area that separates a building’s exterior doors from its interior living spaces. A mud room, on the other hand, is more often defined as a space that serves as a home’s entrance, but doesn’t necessarily have a door—in other words, it can be in an area accessible to both your indoor and outdoor living areas.
How do you decorate a mudroom entryway?
1- Use a laundry basket as a decorative storage piece.
2- Display your family’s favorite shoes in an open shelf.
3- Add a coat rack and mirror to give it that extra touch of style.
4- Hang artwork or pictures on your wall.
5- Use shoe cubbies for storing items you don’t want lying around, like umbrellas, hats and gloves.
6- Add hooks for hanging coats, bags and keys from hangers.

How can I make my mudroom look better?
A mudroom is not only a place for you to take off your shoes and hang up your coats, it’s also where you greet guests, gather with family members and store all of your stuff! While many homeowners focus on their living rooms or bedrooms when choosing furniture pieces that will last a lifetime, most don’t think about their mudrooms. But just because it’s a space that doesn’t see much traffic during parties or holiday gatherings doesn’t mean you should discount its importance in establishing warmth and welcome within your home.
