My Love of Vestibules Can’t be Denied Vol 13

This one is extraordinary. So tell me, in new construction would you rather have square footage used for a sweet vestibule or more square footage for “living space”?

  • PoP–what is UP with the vestibules? Why do you like them so much? I can see liking a vestibule with space for say, a coat rack or a place to put your smelly running shoes, but these aren’t like that… so what’s the attraction?

  • I think vestibules are very practical. In nasty weather, it gives you a place to wipe your shoes, shake or leave your umbrella, and (like my roommate) put your bike. Like a mud room or cloak room inside, except you get to keep all that mess out of your home. And tiled like these, you can mop or hose them out easily.

    For me, I think I just dig the tiles.

  • I think he just likes the word “vestibule”. Not that I blame him in the least.

  • i think they keep the house warmer/colder too by allowing the double door thing tho trap the cold/hot air in the vestibule.

  • I love them as well – the tile is cool, the warm/cool air thing, plus an area to keep your wet umbrella (and your visitors too), wet/muddy shoes, etc. I’d build one into a new home if I were ever to do such a thing.
