I would love a neater entrance/exit where things could (hopefully) be kept organized and easier to find. I like this, but we have only grown-ups at home, so I don't think it's tall enough for big people coats.
Organized entryway, I need ... *space for shoes and a place to put them on/off *school bags * hats/ coats/etc * mirror (for last minute checks etc) * spot for handbag * spot for notes/ calendar etc I would like space for "go bags" eg beach, BBQ, etc
Install a shower basin and floor drain in your mudroom to collect wet footwear. Add a wall faucet and flexible hose attachment for rinsing off mud and debris. (It's also handy for a quick pet bath.) And don't forget to include a fold-down bench for putting on shoes or stacking a few cleanup towels.
