Mudroom Roundup

For an often overlooked space in a house, the quiet mudroom sure does a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to keeping the chaos of the day at bay.

Barring a designated storage spot, these things so often find their way onto the floor, or worse, trickle into the adjoining kitchen or living room.

It’s the connection point between their new kitchen, their grand dining room and their well-outfitted backyard.
