Deborah’s Mudroom

Project Overview

Recently transplanted from New York City, Deborah wanted lots of space. She found it with a new construction home in Bethesda. After spending a year in her new home, she found the mudroom did not work for her family. It was too tiny and in a bad location.

To enlarge the space, Merrick removed the wall separating the mudroom from the hallway. This opened up the area between the front entry and the kitchen. But now the mudroom would be visible to all of Deborah’s guests, so it needed to look more polished.

Custom Candlelight Chatham Shaker cabinets in Snowflake with a cherry benchtop, beadboard wall paneling, and overhead cupboards lean into the home’s traditional feel while providing accessible but hidden storage. Plus, this new bench is over seven feet long, meaning ample seating for both kids and room for Mom and Dad to assist them.

Whether coming or going, the new mudroom gives Deborah’s family the perfect place to store anything and everything they could possibly need.

We had a great experience working with Merrick. Merrick ably led us through the design and build processes while also listening to our input. We trusted the team on-site and were really pleased with the final result, which served as a heavily used and much loved space.
