Mud Room- bigger but similiar to what we've got to work with. Like the up high shelf for decorative touch added to functionality Coats Racks, Back Doors, Color, Mudrooms, Arches, Mud Rooms, Closet, Entryway, Nooks
Also on these boards
Looks almost too nice to be the "mud- room-entry" to a laundry room, and I'm not sure how practical it would be, but I do love the storage-behind-doors (louvered for ventilation), and the natural wood floor. Even the skylight is gorgeous. I would make it a bit wider, put a cushion on the bench, and provide under-bench shoe storage.
cubbies- have with out-of-season flip through a hinged closet system. The board with hooks can be slipped off of notch to enter. Inside would be a few hinged coat hangers (for bulky winter and rain coats & pants), a clothing ladder (for draping the less bulky outdoor clothing), and a peg-hole rack (for things like hats, scarves etc.).
