Mudroom Before & After

It's Friday afternoon and the kids are officially on Christmas break. Let the chaos commence!!

A few weeks ago I showed you the design I was working on for my neighbor's new mudroom.

The original laundry room was off the garage, and was rather small and cramped…

Borrowing space from the garage enabled them to have a much larger room with plenty of space for laundry and storage.

 The floor tile is Restauri Porpora, and the wall paint is Benjamin Moore "Mosaic Tile."

The electrical panel was cleverly hidden behind doors that were coated with chalkboard paint...

The countertop is quartz black noir. We're still waiting for the faucet to be installed.

It's such a great space. I'm a little jealous :)

You can see in this "before" picture, the space they grabbed from the garage to create the mudroom...

And the view from the garage now...

It really didn't affect the garage area at all, and now they have a much more useful room to store all the kids' gear.

I've got to go hang with my boys now, but I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Carolyn- Wow! Didn't that turn out great?!! What a difference that extra space made. I bet she loves doing laundry now! xo Diana

  2. Carolyn -
    This is exactly what I have thought about doing for my laundry room, which is really a laundry closet! Oh, well, I think it's too late since we're putting the house on the market after the holidays. Know anyone who wants to move to Atlanta????

  3. WOW Carolyn that turned out FABULOUS!! Have fun with the boys!

  4. Wow, what a great new room and a brilliant idea to expand from the garage. We could sure use a space like that. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

  5. Looks great….I would kill for a space like this!

  6. Hi Carolyn,

    Wow! Nicely done:) This is exactly what I need to do. The black counter top gorgeous!

    I've been following you on IG and finally have gotten over to your blog:)


  7. That is seriously such a dream mudroom, Carolyn! It would be the favorite room in my house if it were mine! Hope you had a great Christmas - happy new year to you and your family!

  8. It's fabulous…I'm a little jealous, too! Great idea with the chalk board paint!
