Make An Entrance: Mudrooms

In case you don't know, my guilty pleasure is reality tv. And yes, Keeping Up With The Kardashians is no exception. I love the show, and I love Lord Disick. (Do Not Judge!) If you're a fan like me, then you probably watched the season premiere Sunday night. A lot of the show consisted of Scott using the term, "back door." And of course, while thinking up this post, all I can think about is that term in a derogatory sense. This thought all started because I planned on telling you all that Brad & I are back door kind of people (because we never use our front door). So now that you all know how twisted my mind can be, I'll get on with the post.

I love a good mudroom. Who doesn't? These rooms have my wheels turning. I'm feeling quite inspired right now...

My house is on it's knees begging me for a mudroom. Our back door goes right into the kitchen and bears the brunt of the dirt, shoes, dog leashes, keys, etc. 

I think finishing off this corner would be a fairly easy thing to do... Then again, what do I know about construction? My only worry is that it will make my house look too boxy.

So here's my vision: box off the house, move the stairs a full stair length to the left, move the current door to the other side of the new wall, put in a glass paneled door (like the ones above) where the door is now, and add a window to the wall where the stairs currently are. ORRRR... Do all of the above, but make it bigger so that the mudroom would come out further than the rest of the house on the back.

So, what do you think? Could a mudroom work here, or is my vision all wrong?? Feedback is GREATLY appreciated!!
