The custom design of this large mud room and laundry area stands poised and ready to handle the full storage and organizational needs of a large family in addition to any guests that might stop by. All shoes are kept on stand-by in the slanted shoe shelves near the back door — waiting to be called for duty at any time — ensuring dirt will NOT be tracked all over the house. A small bench is built into to the coat organizer, offering a convenient place to sit and put on the shoes or boots. A desk-like credenza holds small items like gloves and keys in drawers and baskets. A custom matching cabinet for the laundry sink was built to keep everything coordinated in the same exciting warm gray wood tone laminate. All storage cabinets entend all the way to to the 12-foot ceiling, maximizing storage potential. Out-of-season and infrequently used items can be stored on the upper cabinets/shelves rather than in the basement or attic, making the whole house more organized. The combination of the very contemporary flat door and drawer fronts with the traditional crown and base moulding give these built-ins a timeless, transitional style that blends with any décor.
