The Growing Trend of Mud Rooms

The definition and use of mud rooms has changed over the years. In the past, mud rooms were hidden behind closed doors on floor plans and full of dirt and disorganization; but now they are becoming a showcase for organizational design and creativity, making use of every wall, nook and cranny. Mud rooms are becoming larger and including more functional space than ever before. This trend has greatly affected our house plan designs and how we meet this growing need. From simple home plans to small house plans and even larger dream house plans, many of our homeplans keep mud room space in mind.

Take a look at The Riverpointe floor plan. As a compact and small home plan with 2108 square feet, it has a mud room hallway that is separate from the utility room and allows room for coats to be hung and bookbags and boots to be removed before entry into the main house. This helps reduce that unwanted clutter in the house!

If you're looking for a larger house plan and also a one story floor plan, check out The Fincannon. This mud room is placed just inside the doorway from the garage and prior to entering the utility room. Drop any backpacks, coats, shoes or create a charging station, etc. in this useful space and it can be your organizational dream.

The multi-functioning Mud Rooms

If you want more than just a place to drop off items by the door, then we have some homeplans for you. Our Craftsman house plan 1373, The Abroise, has an oversized utility room just inside the garage entry that can be used a as a laundry room, craft room, mud room, work space all in one!

And if you find your Don Gardner dream home design but it doesn't have exactly what you want in a mud room, we have a modifications team who can create the mud room of your dreams!
