Design tips for decorating a green style mudroom

Here’s how to achieve the green aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a green mudroom?

Mudrooms serve as a transitional space between the outdoors and the indoors, offering a convenient spot to remove and store footwear, outerwear, and other accessories before entering the main part of the home. The design of a mudroom should be practical, maximizing storage while maintaining ease of movement. Common features include durable flooring, easy-to-clean surfaces, and ample lighting.

Whether you're in the process of a mudroom remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:

  • Paint or Wallpaper: Select a color or pattern that sets the desired mood for the mudroom and complements the style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Bench: A long seat best suited for several people to sit on, often made out of wood. Benches in mudrooms provide a place to sit while putting on or taking off shoes. They can come with or without a back and sometimes feature storage underneath.
  • Storage Units: Cabinets or lockers tailored for storing outerwear, shoes, and other outdoor essentials. These units help keep the mudroom organized and clutter-free. Open shelves or closed cabinets above or beside the bench and storage units for additional storage of seasonal items or less frequently used objects.
  • Coat Hooks or Racks: Installed on walls or part of a storage unit, these are essential for hanging coats, scarves, hats, and bags.
  • Boot Tray: A designated area, often a tray made of durable material, placed near the entry to hold wet or muddy boots and shoes, protecting the floor from moisture and dirt.
  • Umbrella Stand: A container or stand designed to hold umbrellas, ideally placed near the entryway for easy access during rainy weather.
  • Runner Rug: A runner can add warmth to your mudroom.
  • Decorative Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: Window treatments not only help control the light and provide privacy but also serve to tie the room's design together. They offer an opportunity to inject color, texture, and pattern into the living space, making it more inviting and personalized. Whether flowing and sheer for a light, airy feel or rich and textured for a more luxurious look, curtains play a pivotal role in setting the tone and atmosphere of the mudroom. Don’t forget the curtain rod!

By incorporating these pieces into your mudroom's design, you can create a functional and welcoming entry space that effectively manages outdoor wear and accessories, keeping the rest of your home clean and organized.

How do you decorate with green?

Green may be one of the most versatile colors in design. It is a common hue in all design styles and room types. Soft greens like sage, olive, or mint can bring an instant sense of calm or serenity to a space, while bright greens like lime or chartreuse bring a sense of whimsy or retro tone. The use of deeper green hues like pine or emerald are hallmarks of more traditional design styles.

Green is often associated with nature, so consider using it as a foundation for a nature-inspired mudroom color palette. Pair different shades of green with earthy tones like browns, beiges, or muted yellows to create a serene and organic atmosphere.

If you want to make a bold statement with green, consider painting an accent wall in a rich shade of green or using green wallpaper. This can create a focal point in the room and add depth and visual interest. Alternatively, you can opt for a more subtle approach by incorporating green through smaller decor elements like curtains, throw pillows, or artwork.

Lighting can dramatically affect the perception of green. Natural light tends to enhance the freshness and vibrancy of green, making it feel more alive. In artificial lighting, warmer tones can deepen the richness of darker greens, adding coziness to the space.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to bring green into your space is through indoor plants. Not only do they add a pop of color, but they also purify the air (win-win!). Choose a variety of plants with different shades of green and textures to create a lush and vibrant indoor garden.
