Your home can reflect farmhouse personality the moment guests step through the door. Here's how to get the look in your mudroom. Whether you introduce a set of lockers or install subway tile, these ideas will help you decorate your mudroom with farmhouse style.

Mini Farmhouse Makeovers

A set of lockers is a casual yet trendy way to amp up mudroom storage. They bring an old-school look to a modern farmhouse home, plus provide a storage place for coats, seasonal wares, and shoes. Look for lockers that are just starting to show wear—think paint chips or small dents, which add rustic character to the room. 

The Ultimate Cleaning Guide for Entryways and Mudrooms

Wash Up

Wash station

A mudroom near the back door is perfect for quick cleanups. Because it is one of the highest-traffic areas in your home, it's a great spot to stop muddy hands and feet in their tracks. Incorporate a large sink and towel bar for quick cleaning. This wash station gives simple nods to farmhouse style with its warm walls, vintage sink, subway tile, and fresh flowers.

Corner Console


Short on space? Pile up antique statement pieces in the area next to your door for a perfectly collected mudroom. A distressed bench mixed with rustic wood paneling and old-school soda memorabilia creates vintage-chic style in this mudroom.

Gone Fishing


You don't have to be an avid fisher to appreciate that subtle nods to the great outdoors make for fun farmhouse decor.

Either way, you can never go wrong with a mix of wood and white in a farmhouse mudroom.
