The ‘Mud Room’ is the ultimate type of Utility for the Country family. This room is the homes first line of defence from mud between the back door and the rest of the house. It’s the place where the damp dogs are left to finish drying off, outside coats and wellington boots are dumped and the homegrown produce is cleaned. Mud rooms also sometimes double as the potting shed or children’s art rooms, as well as being places where garden games are often stored.
This part Painted and part Oak Mud Room has been designed with a slightly rustic stop champher design on the door panel moldings. The Mud Room has been finished in a pale grey, wipe clean eggshell paint, which tones beautifully with the grey stone floor and solid Zimbabwe Black honed granite worktops with integrated draining board Meanwhile the antique brass door knobs and cup handles pick up the warmth of the solid Oak.
The room consists of two full-height, double door cupboards providing a huge amount of storage space. The corner is utilized with space for the dog bed with two drawers above and a single wall unit. Next to this is a line of hand turned wooden coat pegs with an Oak seated Boot bench beneath. The Boot Bench has two deep drawers for the storage of Wellingtons and other items. This Mud Room also has a fabulous set of wood-on-wood drawers in the style of an Antique Merchant Chest. Each drawer has an Antique Brass Cup Handle style Drawer Pull with Card frame, so each drawer can be clearly labeled.
At the far side of the Mud Room, is a generous sized ceramic Belfast sink sat on a bespoke ‘Potting Shed style’ open washstand with oak slats. A pair of Perrin & Rowe twin pillar deck mounted taps from the Mayan collection serves the sink.
