Nothing quite makes you feel more like an adult than being excited about a mud room! It is one of those spaces in the house that is such a work horse, it takes a beating and can help to serve us in our busy lives. The mud room at the Miner Park Modern project was originally the house’s kitchen space. Facing the front of the house, you can easily envision where the kitchen sink used to be.
This 10’x5′ space serves as a dumping ground for shoes, coats, and backpacks. We added a utility sink to the area to have a second sink off of the kitchen for hiding dishes when entertaining. It also acts as the space to water plants and prep for any deep cleaning days.
We used a lovely muted, aqua color from Benjamin Moore called Aegean Teal on the cabinets here and topped the built-in bench with walnut to have it be more cohesive with the adjoining kitchen. Because the homeowners do frequently entertain large gatherings, a double pocket door was installed to easily hide the space… But is is pretty enough to leave open, don’t you think?!
