Beach House: Makeover Your Mudroom

A closer look at the 2017 This Old House Idea House


Olympic® Paints and Stains is proud to be a sponsor of the 2017 This Old House Idea House, a Rhode Island Beach House. An update of a classic seaside architectural style, the idea house is built for easy living, with a flexible layout that can welcome multiple generations.

Unique Utility

As the main point of entry, this combination of mudroom, laundry and pet-washing station are designed to be welcoming and super efficient.

Functional Flair

Clean neutral walls allowed for some some fun with fabric patterns, and the striking black-slate flooring is very easy to clean and maintain. A cluster of cubbies and storage bench provides a busy family the perfect place to ditch dirty shoes and stash belongings. Add some character to a functional mudroom with a pop of bold color, like Olympic’s blue hue with personality Daring Indigo




With ample natural light and a great view of the front yard, this room is a perfect combination of efficiency and style. Watch a video tour of the mudroom on This Old House
