Create a focal point with your light fixture or several pendant lights, and then add a beautiful rug. Your mudroom will get a lot of foot traffic, so make sure the rug can withstand wear and tear. A versatile indoor-outdoor rug is a good option.

Finally, don’t forget the accessories. Maybe it’s artwork, a floral arrangement, or some cushions on the seating area.

Whatever you do with your mudroom, make sure it’s an opportunity to show your style, have a little fun, and also that it lends itself to a more organised home with plenty of storage.
