The feature of the Month....Mudrooms

The feature of the Month....Mudrooms St. CloudThe Design Team offers St. Cloud and surrounding areas stunning home plans in a variety of styles. This month we are focusing on a key feature in home design: mudrooms!

Mudrooms are a Minnesota staple and have a variety of sizes and uses. Typically these rooms are located off the garage and may include 3 common features: laundry, powder room, and storage. The size of your family dictates how much space you will need. Do you have athletes in the family? Mudrooms are perfect for storing athletic gear and equipment. Add some storage benches with hooks to store seasonal items and hang coats to dry from the elements. Doors can be closed off when you have company to keep the area looking neat. If you have dogs, mudrooms are ideal spaces for a food station, dog bed, kennel area, and more. Or add a craft table and turn your mudroom into a perfect space for paints, clay, and other messy pursuits! The options are endless and the choice is yours.

We often like to refer to the mud room as the ‘Owner’s Entrance’. This the most used entrance into the home, and is most likely used by your closest friends and family. Why not dress it up a little? As American architect Louis Sullivan said, “Form follows function”.

Whatever your needs, The Design Team will draft the perfect plans and ideal-sized mudroom for you and your family. Call today and set up your free consultation: (320) 252-1517. We look forward to drawing you in!

Tour Of Homes

Tour Of HomesAfter another successful tour of homes, The Design Team (St. Cloud, MN) came away with lots of popular trends to pass on to you! For instance, having a mixture of light and dark woodwork in the same room is a current trend that is getting a lot of attention. Lower-level bars are popular, as well as having an entire wine room for display and storage. The home theater revolution continues, with more open areas trending. Instead of having large homes, size is trending down a bit with more attention to detail. Large areas of woodwork, sunny spaces, and smaller, cozier sitting rooms are all popular right now.
