Organized and Stylish

The user-friendly mudroom with stylish storage solutions and gray-brown vertical shiplap walls that visually makes the space feel taller includes a Scandinavian-inspired whitewashed wood floor with creamy hues.

Rustic and Refined Bench

The mudroom’s charming wood bench with curved arms that resembles a reclaimed church pew adds character to the space. The rustic bench with a weathered barley finish offers a spot for taking boots and shoes off and on before entering and exiting the main living areas of this extensively remodeled urban home.

Local Flavor

Build manager Dan Faires found the vintage sign that sits above the bench from a local sheet metal company that went out of business in 1931. The eye-catching sign with a bold mustard-colored background and custom frame decorates the wall and adds local flavor. A fun black ceramic boots-shaped umbrella stand with a glossy finish offers a way to keep wet umbrellas out of the home’s main living spaces.

Hanging Storage

A white wall rack includes a ledge on top for decorative accessories, with hooks below for keeping items like a cozy flap hat and a sturdy black sling bag easily accessible.

Solar Skylight

A deck mounted skylight above the bench includes a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a fully concealed battery powered operator and control system. The skylight also includes a rain sensor that closes the unit during inclement weather.

Comfy Additions

A fuzzy throw blanket and a pair of gray plaid-pattern pillows add comfort on the bench. A large leather duffel bag sits under the bench, ready for the next trip out of town.

Indoor and Outdoor Connection

The exterior door with oversized windows and solid wood ebonized frame opens the mudroom to the covered back porch outside. The window by the door includes a black light-filtering cellular shade with texture that adds beauty, provides some privacy and helps reduce the cost of the home’s annual energy bill.

Top-Notch Security

This remodeled and updated urban home includes a top-notch security system, with easy-to-use components and features like a touch-to-wake wireless black keypad on the mudroom wall that lights up when you need to see it, and goes dark when you don’t.

Industrial-Style Cabinet

A black metal cabinet with industrial style includes four doors and two open compartments, with counter space on top to keep mudroom essentials organized and easily accessible.

Versatile Storage Options

The cabinet offers a combination of open and closed storage, perfect for storing items used less often behind closed doors while a selection of candles in one of the open compartments sits ready for the next dinner party at home.

Quick Getaway

The left side of the unit offers storage space for an extra-tough bag with semi-rigid construction for sports gear, tools and more, so you can grab the bag and go when heading to the gym or out of town for the weekend.

Open Storage

The stylish metal cabinet that offers open and closed storage for decorative and practical home items has a black finish that complements the black details seen in the nearby kitchen, dining room and living room.

Floating Shelf

A rustic mantel shelf constructed from planks of real alder wood with a black finish sits on the wall above the cabinet. The attractive shelf offers display space for handmade, one-of-a-kind items found in Nordic countries, like a trio of hand-carved reindeer figurines.

Handy Basket

A wire basket on top of the cabinet offers a spot to store gloves and other grab-and-go items needed before heading out the door.

Leather Catchall

The top of the unit also includes coffee table and home entertaining books, and a leather catchall valet tray with heavy-duty corner snaps for keys, coins and other small items.

Connected Spaces

This view from inside the mudroom shows the transitional nook that connects the mudroom to the kitchen and main living spaces of this extensively renovated two-level urban home. The nook includes a hand-knotted tribal jute area rug that adds softness and pattern over the whitewashed wood floor.

Natural Beauty

This framed photo of an Icelandic horse with blonde mane in winter in front of the ocean hangs on a wall in the nook. This wall art with natural beauty includes all the different shades of icy blue, white, mustard and natural tones that were used in this home to celebrate the Scandinavian countries that make up the culture of Minnesota.

Farmhouse-Style Shelves

The nook also includes two rustic galvanized metal wall shelves with hooks that offer an attractive way to display a potted plant, framed modern art and practical household items with carved wood and Scandinavian style.

All-Seasons Comfort

This view by the hall doorway to the mudroom shows the main digital thermostat for the home that monitors and keeps temperatures at a comfortable level year-round.

Powder Room Preview

This view from inside the mudroom shows the transitional nook to the left, and the powder room tucked away from the main living areas to the right, located directly behind the stairwell to the upper level of the home.

Transitional Style

The stylish powder room with dramatic vertical shiplap walls in a black eggshell finish combines classic and modern design details for a distinctive transitional look.

Functional and Classic

The powder room’s wall-mounted, deep single-basin service sink made from cast iron includes a rim guard for added durability.

First-Rate Faucet

The chrome double-cross-handle utility sink faucet with rose spray gooseneck spout features sturdy solid brass construction with one-piece ceramic valves that resist debris and hard water buildup.

Nordic Art

For a touch of Nordic charm, a framed photograph of a black cabin out in the middle of Iceland in the winter decorates the wall above the high-tech toilet.

Advanced Toilet Technology

The powder room’s sleek white toilet pops against the black walls and includes personalized settings so you can fine-tune every option to your exact preference. Ambient-colored lighting, wireless Bluetooth music capability, and a heated seat and foot warmer are some of the cool features. On the wall sits the toilet’s touch-screen remote control with magnetic wall-mount docking/charging station.

Easy Transitions

The easy transitions between the mudroom, powder room, kitchen and other main living areas on the first floor of this extensively remodeled urban home were designed for modern living and entertaining.
