Springtime Staple: Mudrooms!

Custom mudroom by Catherine Truman Architects

Come April, the mudroom is the hardest working room in the home. Mudrooms not only serve as the bridge between the outdoor and indoor realms, supporting our comings and goings, they are also the catchall for the family’s gear and the grit of the great outdoors. A well-designed mudroom helps tame the clutter and keeps the rest of your home spotless, and is a must if you’re building or renovating a new home here in New England. Here follows drop-dead gorgeous drop zones....
