Mudroom Drop Zone Ideas

Raleigh Custom Homes

Get ideas from these seven mudroom drop zones, designed with different types of storage, uses, and configurations.

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #1: Family Storage Center

This family drop zone comes with upper and lower cubbies, coat hooks (each with a letter inlay that spells "family"), and dual closets. 

One closet features shelving, designed for storing soaps, buckets, and small house cleaning items. The other closet features a full height design, crafted to fit tall items such as mops, brooms, and a vacuum.

Wainscoting adds formality to this traditional laundry room design, complete with a custom drop zone.


Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #2: Multi-Use Cubby System

An open archway leads from the breakfast room and kitchen to this tucked-in mudroom space.

While many mudrooms are built into the laundry room, this drop zone was integrated in a stand-alone storage space.

The upper cubbies are perfect for storing light-weight items you use less frequently. The lower cubbies double as a bench seat.

These cubbies are sized perfectly for adding colorful buckets or labeled baskets


Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #3: Hallway with two Drop Zones

A small nook, short hallway, or under-stairs wall can be the perfect place to add built-in storage units.

In this Raleigh custom home, dual drop zones offer double the built-in storage - with a unit on each wall of the hallway.

For a design like this, consider assigning each family member their own cubby column (you can even personalize each section with name labels).

Talk to your builder about the flexibility of your floor plan layout, or ask Stanton Homes how to custom design a home packed with usable space and creative storage solutions. 

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #4: Large storage design

This mudroom space - steps away from the laundry room - offers ample long-term storage space.

In this storage design, cubbies form a full rectangle, with center wainscoting design (the perfect place to add coat hooks).

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #2: Full Wall of Storage

In this design, the tile laundry room acts as a transition area between the garage and mudroom storage area.


Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #5: Full Wall of Storage

This mudroom, tucked between the garage and kitchen, has a place for everything, everywhere you turn.

The full wall of custom, elegant built in shelving offers open concept storage. 

A set of storage hooks are great for coats, purses, and even keys.  A sink cabinet is designed for easy clean-up, preventing dirt and grime from being tracked into the home.

Cabinets above the washer and dryer offer storage that's more hidden.   Low-maintenance custom tile flooring makes clean-up easy, too.

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #6: Locker Storage System

A locker style storage systems with cabinets, hooks, and bench add functionality to this mudroom. The green carpeting (great for hiding traffic patterns) is designed for indoor/outdoor use.

Tucked-in closet storage is perfect for tall items to be kept out of sight.

Mudroom Drop Zone Idea #7: Home Hub

If your family includes children and pets, you'll appreciate this "home hub" design that melds space and storage in one convenient room.  

The perimeter of the room is wrapped in cabinets and built-in countertops. Tall cabinets are designed to house large cleaning tools and supplies.
