Contrary to what the name suggests, mudrooms are every bit as capable of being luxurious as every other area of your home. These rooms are built to be functional, multi-purposed spaces where outdoor clothing and sports gear are stowed, so making them comfortable and luxurious can be a bit of a challenge.
However, it can be done. All it takes is a little creativity, ingenuity, and of course, granite! Here’s a look at how people have used granite to make their mudrooms even more elegant.
When most people think about incorporating granite into their homes, they typically think of custom granite countertops, fireplace hearths, backsplashes or desktops (all of which are great places to incorporate granite). However, a custom-crafted granite bench in the mudroom is as artful as it is functional and surprising.
Of course, you can’t go wrong with custom granite countertops. Look at the way they add a touch of sophistication without creating a sense of over-the-top elegance to this very practical mudroom in Michigan.
On the other hand, custom granite countertops can just as easily steal the show and become the focal point of any mudroom, the way they do in this classic country home. Notice the custom cut of the sink area, which is used ingeniously as a flower bed. The combination of black granite with natural wood tones creates a warm, welcoming feeling.
Who says your fireplace is the only part of your home that can feature a granite hearth? Look at the way these homeowners took something usually associated with fireplaces and re-purposed it as a stylish and functional feature in their mudroom. As an innovative bench, kids will appreciate having a place to sit when taking off their jackets.
For even more functional appeal, consider having a custom granite bench built into a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling storage space, complete with cupboards and drawers. Tucking the bench back into the wall provides the perfect space for storing balls, tennis rackets, coats and shoes and getting dressed for the big game.
