Front door do similar bench from one end to other, maybe few shelves for purses, and no hooks, just a mirror with decor shelf above. Neutral grey tile. Shoes under bench. Check if electrical outlet. If so have one shelf out more height of hall table for mood lighting lamp, hold guests keys, etc.
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.).
