“There is nothing cleaner than a coat of fresh white paint,” says Nivara. “And when it comes to a mudroom, white paint echoes the end goal: to organize the messiness of every day—and make it all look effortless.”
Mudroom Reminder Zone
Skip the texts: Put your mudroom walls to work!
Notable® Dry Erase Paint transforms any wall into a colourful, oversized note pad. Available in any one of Benjamin Moore’s 3,500+ colours, a dry erase wall is the ultimate way to leave a reminder note.
“We love seeing the range of paint colours homeowners use under a coat of Notable® Clear,” says Nivara. Here, Bud Green 2033-50 brings spring vibes indoors.
“Adding a colourful dry erase accent wall to a mudroom spices up a minimalist, functional space,” she adds.
Posh Meets Practicality
"There’s no need to sacrifice style when it comes to a mudroom. In fact, a well-designed mudroom can actually set the tone for the rest of your home!
Here, an ornate area rug, velvet settee, floral art, plush pillows, and other accessories make a great first impression. A bureau with plenty of drawers houses and hides grab-and-go essentials like a dog’s leash or gardening tools.
“This homeowner used furniture and décor that wasn’t being using elsewhere in their home,” says Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore colour and design expert and regular on Canada’s Cityline.
“By pulling these remnant pieces together, they gave them a new life and infused their mudroom with personality.”
Colour-wise, Aberdeen Green 631 on walls, trim and ceiling creates a monochromatic envelope of soft green that brings the fresh countryside, indoors.
A Cheery Entryway, with Mudroom-Style Pragmatism
Don’t have a dedicated mudroom? Rework your entryway for optimal functionality, including:
Kid-friendly pegs or a row of hooks for hanging coats and other items quickly and efficiently.
Fun accessories, paired here with a striped area rug, velvet pillows, and a playful dinosaur mascot.
“This bright yellowMarblehead Gold HC-11 door welcomes guests as they pull off muddy shoes or dry off wet dogs,” says Sharon. “Vibrant paint colours can also work wonders on functional room elements, like the transom beam pictured here in Caribbean Blue Water 2055-30,” she adds.
