Bespoke Boot Rooms

As a result of some private commissions we've been working on bespoke furniture storage solutions. An increasingly popular look is the 'mud room' or 'boot room' this is a traditional room design which is evocative of country houses and the outdoor life.

What is a mud room?

A very traditional look, a mud room or boot room is a bit like a locker/changing room. It is somewhere to store outdoor clothes, in the back hallway or scullery. A mud/boot room normally has a bench with storage for boots or shoes below it. Along side this may be additional shelving for hats and gloves or riding wear. Just like a changing room there will be hooks for hanging outdoor wear. A common feature of the mud room look is the vertical cladding on the back wall of the furniture- designed to protect the room from water or mud, again a feature common to the locker/changing room.

What is so great about a mud room?

  • Functional: Mud rooms are a practical way to keep dirt, mud, and other debris out of the rest of the home. They provide a designated space for people to take off their shoes, coats, and other outerwear, and they can also be used to store sports equipment, gardening tools, and other items.

  • Organised: Mud rooms can help to keep your home organized by providing a place for everything. There are many different storage options available for mud rooms, so you can find one that fits your needs and style.

  • Clutter-free: Mud rooms can help to keep your home clutter-free by keeping all of the dirty and messy stuff out of sight. This can make your home feel more spacious and inviting.

  • Versatile: Mud rooms can be used for a variety of purposes. In addition to storing shoes and coats, they can also be used as a laundry room, a pet grooming area, or even a home office.

  • Customisable: Mud rooms can be customized to fit the needs of your family. The size, layout, and décor can all be tailored to your specific preferences.

Overall, mud rooms are a versatile and practical addition to any home. They can help to keep your home clean, organised, and clutter-free. If you are looking for a way to improve the functionality and style of your home, a mud room is a great option to consider.

Here are some additional reasons why mud rooms are becoming more popular:

  • More people are working from home, and a mud room can provide a convenient place to store work clothes and supplies.

  • Families with young children or pets often find mud rooms to be a lifesaver.

  • The popularity of farmhouse and rustic décor has also contributed to the rise of mud rooms.

If you are thinking about adding a mud room to your home, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • The size of your mud room will depend on your needs. If you have a large family or a lot of outdoor gear, you will need a larger mud room.

  • The location of your mud room is also important. It should be located near the entryway to your home, but it should also be close to the laundry room and other storage areas.

  • The décor of your mud room should be functional and stylish. You will want to choose materials that are durable and easy to clean.
