I hinted in this post last week that we have started on a new project around here lately. Today, I thought I would share my mood board and the floor plan design for the project.
At first I was super excited that we even had a back entry/mudroom in this house. Our previous house did not have one which was a challenge, especially in the winter when we had to deal with wet boots, snow pants, etc.
But the design of the mudroom was less than ideal as you can see here.
This picture from before we moved in will show you the main reason for changing the floor plan of the mudroom...see that weird little jut-out by the door to the back entry? I wanted it out of there (along with that lovely railing) ASAP.
It drove me crazy...partially because I couldn't figure out why they did it that way. After LOTS of measuring and re-measuring and investigating, discussions, etc. we figured out we had JUST enough room to move the door over to where the closet was.
But this created yet another problem...where to put a closet? Or lockers/cubbies?
This required a bit more space in the back entry so we measured and re-measured again and figured out we could steal two feet from the garage and bump the back wall out to give us the space we needed.
Phew! Hopefully I haven't completely confused anybody yet!
Now onto the fun part! What is this room going to look like when it's done? Well, here is the mood board (finally) that I created to give you a general idea. The cubbies and cabinet between them will be a DIY project so they won't look exactly like what is on the board.
What do you think?
