Mudroom Before & After

Make your mudroom hardwearing:

Step inside the new mudroom at Haus Heidi Whistler! Oversized closets make storage aplenty. Plus, hardwearing materials clad this space from top to bottom, including:

  • Engineered hardwood flooring on the walls from Fuzion Flooring (if it's durable enough to go on your floors, doesn't that make it an awesome wall surface? We think so!).
  • Natural marble floor tiles (Um, yes please!)
  • Faux grasscloth vinyl wallpaper from Brewster (hello durable vinyl!).

Go lean with hallway furnishings:

From chopped up to lean, mean and clean, the mudroom hallway at Haus Heidi Whistler draws you in and through it without clutter or interference, thanks to a narrow bench perch to sit and tuck shoes underneath and a space-saving convenient floating shelf to set down your phone or keys as you pass by. Oh, and cleaning those floors? A breeze!
