Open layouts give way to mudrooms on Long Island

The open layouts that are growing in popularity among high-end homeowners leave little room for clutter — a mess in one room can be seen from many others. Enter the mudroom. According to the New York Times they are making a comeback among Long Island homeowners in wealthy enclaves from the Hamptons to Syosset and Roslyn Heights.

“It is well worth it to build a space even by taking as little as four feet in width from another room and make a hallway from either a garage door or a side door,” Judy Studin, an interior designer from Great Neck, told the Times. Pamela Doyle, a broker with Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, told the Times that the feature has become a real selling point for homes.

In the largest homes, the bigger the mudroom the better. In smaller homes with no space for a separate room, families are increasingly installing cubbies or doors for storage under staircases. [NYT]Adam Fusfeld
