A few spots in the basement at Project Modern Family are small, but are frankly too good not to post about. Today I’m sharing the mudroom area and adjacent powder bath. They are as pretty as they are practical.
This space will be getting a lot of wear and tear. It’s next to the basement walkout door where the kids come inside after playing in the snow and elements, peel off their winter gear, and file in for some hot cocoa. We couldn’t do hardwood in this spot, so we opted for a beautiful herringbone tile pattern. Similarly, we chose a pretty faux leather/vinyl for the seat cushion rather than actual leather. This way there’s no need to worry about ruining a leather or linen. You can see the drinking fountain and large, glass french doors just off the kitchen.
Along with practicality, the grates on the cabinet doors allow things to dry or air out, and the drawers are perfect for shoes or snow clothes, which works really great for a mudroom.
Next to the mudroom is a sweet little powder bath. It was tricky to photograph, but here are a couple shots of its adorableness.
Have you seen the rest of this home? It’s a rabbit hole you’ll definitely want to get stuck going down.
