I think I have finally come up with a plan for my future mudroom!
After looking at hundreds of pictures of mudrooms on Pinterest, Google, and Houzz.com, I think I finally have a plan…or is it Plan A? Time will tell, but I really like this plan.
I downloaded Google SketchUp (it’s free, and super easy to use), and started playing around with it. I drew several different plans, and finally came up with one that I think will work:
The benches will have hinged lids for storage, but here’s the part I really like: Norm (my electrician husband) suggested building a “false bottom” underneath the upper cabinets and installing recessed puck lights. This room has no windows so, I think the under-cabinet lighting would be a nice accent.
Time to find another place for that freezer and let the building begin!
What do you think?
I hope everyone is having a great week!
I love your plan! And how fortunate you are to have an electrician for a hubby! 🙂 Just curious, where is the freezer being moved to? Could you put it in the other corner (left side of picture)?
I’m thinking it will go in another part of our basement. I can’t move it to the other corner, since that area is too small, and there is a door to the left that goes outside, It really won’t fit anywhere else in that room.

Love it – especially the under cabinet lighting! I’ve always wanted to learn Sketch-up but a little intimidated by it and the time it would take me to learn it. Maybe someday…
Thanks, Crystal! Sketch-up is real easy once you get the hang of it.

It will look wonderful after it is done. So useful too. So you have an electrician husband, mine is a plumber/welder. That is what made the bathroom and kitchen renovations a breeze. I do wish he did more than his trade though. They rest gets left to me and any workers that I hire, lol.
Hey it’s Cheri from Its So Very Cheri and The DIY Club.
I can’t wait to see the finished product. I love mudrooms/beautiful entries. You have a great blog.
Thanks Cheri! I can’t wait to get started on it!
Looks like a good plan! I would love to have a mudroom.
