I researched into this as many families have the trouble of members of the family and guests coming in from outside and struggling for an area to get changed, hang their coats, wash them selves down etc. So if you have such an amazing facility then you should and need to start the experience in the locker room, and the experience is not just for you. You want to make a lasting impression on your guests to.
Here’s some ideas I came up with which gives the wow factor as soon as you step into the changing rooms. I have tried to incorporate many looks for you to experience, as well as a varied pallet of colours and textures to help you get the right feel for you.

The team at Highmark Builders created this beautiful but practical mudroom for a lucky client. It uses soft grey tones to offset the rather commercial looking mixed-height lockers. The locker doors where actually supplied by the owners and Highmark applied a fresh powder-coat to give the matt finish before cleverly integrating them into the custom-stained cabinetry. For the marble floor they have used a distinct combination of cut-down China Black (or perhaps Nero Marquina) marble to surround Cararra subway tiles. The grouting in this design actually provides an anti-slip feature which is great for those rainy days! I adore the classy lockers in this mudroom from Country Club Designs. It really does recreate the feel of the local sailing club effectively. The subtle paint on the locker doors is Donald Kaufman color 25B. The home owner has finished off the look well by providing some nice touches of their own such as the rustic wooden flags mounted on the doors. The bench unit also doubles as useful storage. Kemp Hall Studio produced this amazing space from what was initially a fairly narrow hallway. The lockers where commissioned and then hand-built by a local cabinet shop, the eggshell finish helps to reflect back some of the natural light from the window. A particularly nice touch is the miniature chalkboard name tags on each locker. I’ll think I’ll be stealing that one! For me the rug doesn’t quite work and is covering too much of the lovely white oak floors, but hey it is a mudroom… This locker room by Jason Ball Interiors has everything the perfect family landing spot needs. Bench seat – check, storage lockers – check, coat hooks – check. The bench is custom made solid walnut plank and works well against the striped wall which surprisingly is achieved with a paint treatment and not wallpaper. Steel lockers like these can be picked up at most reclamation yards or look out for school and factory closures and refits. This amazing Boston mudroom was brought to life by the talented Jan Gleysteen Architects. The style is very traditional and the lockers have clearly been produced by a very skilled cabinet maker. I adore the combination of the shoe cubby, draw and locker into one unit. Having separate external hangers for the really wet coats is always a good idea too.
