Roundup: 6 Inspiring Impromptu Garage Mudrooms

by on Mar 25, 2014

I try to keep the garage entry to the house tidy, as that’s the one everyone uses. But, I’ve never thought to turn it into an impromptu mudroom. It’s a great idea for those without a proper mudroom (me), plus, it keeps the mud where it belongs: in the garage. I found six spaces that really stir the creative juices. Take a look:

First up is this lovely spot from Triple the Blessings. Hard to believe this space is IN the garage, but it is.

A bright spot in the garage that will surely bring a smile to those who enter:

Some before and after action from East Coast Creative:

Not sure how long white walls would look so pristine, but in this pic and next to that juicy orange, they look quite fabulous. (LOVE the locker room effect.)

Classic black and white with a splash of color is always good combo.

  1. Love this idea.. but how do you keep the spiders and bugs under control in a garage?  Just curious!

  2. We have a mudroom area in our garage and love it. We’ve never had a problem with bugs. (It’s an enclosed garage and we keep it swept out and clean.)

  3. Painting metal doors works best with a sponge roller and sponge brush. This helps leave no streaks when done properly not to mention easy clean up!! 

    I used this idea but altered it to fit my garage. It looks great. Makes the garage entry into the laundry room look so much better!! Thanks!

  4. Where can I get the white hall tree with red cushion? I’ve searched all over with no luck. It’s perfect for our garage
