Is your laundry room located off the garage or a side entry? If so, these 15+ mudroom and laundry room combo ideas will help you design a beautiful (and practical) space!
I’ve been reminiscing about the mudroom in our last home. Maybe it’s all the rain and snow of February in Kentucky… but I’m missing how much storage and function was packed into that small (but mighty!) mudroom and laundry room combo.
Mudroom and Laundry Room Layouts
Typically, you’ll find mudroom and laundry room combos located in a second entry (such as the side or back of the house) or a garage entry.
There are plenty of perks to an alternate entry that opens into a laundry room. After all, you’ll achieve double the function in the same square footage.
In fact, if you’re building a new home, a mudroom and laundry room combo layout is something you should definitely consider. It could save you some serious cash since it combines two rooms into the footprint of one room.
Flooring for Mudroom and Laundry Rooms
Laundry rooms and mudrooms both require flooring that holds up well against water, dirt, and grime; such as:
luxury vinyl tile (LVT)
This common need for durable flooring is another reason why it makes sense to combine the laundry and mudroom.
Mudrooms and Laundry Room Storage
Another way in which laundry and mudrooms are alike is that they are both a utility space. And, while a utility space must be practical, it can also be pretty.
This small mudroom and laundry room utilizes board and batten to define the space. Coat hooks are installed along the top piece of trim work - adding versatile storage for coats, bags, drying clothes, etc.
Stephanie, of Abbotts at Home, cleverly turned her laundry room into a laundry/mudroom combo by modifying existing cabinetry. Also, don't you just love the green surround she added to the washer/dryer?
