Custom Project: Gerdeman Mudroom Bench

Custom Project: Gerdeman Mudroom Bench

When our clients built their house, they opted to add a small mudroom to the standard layout offered. We all know that shoes and coats really pile up, so having a spot to hide everything is a necessity. They asked us to build some storage for all of their things that would fit the modern farmhouse aesthetic of their home.

Our client wanted the bench to be on the taller side since the husband is really tall. This allowed a lot of room for shoe storage. We added an adjustable height shelf to allow for various shoe heights.

To stay on the modern side of "modern farmhouse" we opted for board and batten, rather than the more traditional headboard. Our client also picked out sleek black hooks to hang coats and backpacks.

We couldn't forget about the dogs, so we added some storage drawers to hide dog food and other accessories.

Storage cubbies on the top allow plenty of extra space to hide hats, gloves, etc. And we personally love how the black paint contrasts against the white oak bench top.
