UTILITARIAN SPACES

The mud room originated out of necessity on farms and ranches as a specified place to shed muddy shoes and clothing when coming in from the fields and pastures. This back entrance kept dirt and grime from being tracked through the house, usually with a sink or basin for washing up before meals. The mud room remains a perpetual favorite of mine as "necessity is indeed the mother of invention."
