A closed-off mudroom is the best option for those that don't care to have a guest-ready space at all times. In this traditional home, designers Jeffrey S. Brown, Monica Miller and Stefanie Ciak of J.S. Brown & Co. create a separate mudroom located just off the kitchen and entryway. It features all the elements of a traditional mudroom — like shelves, hooks and drawers — but uses a sliding, reclaimed-wood barn door to keep everything stylishly concealed.
The Carrollwood by David Weekley Homes in Pines at Elmcreek Community is a classic floorplan that features a front porch, a large owners retreat with tray ceilings, and a large finished basement. Custom home upgrades include various basement adjustments, a wet bar, or a deck in the backyard.
