mudroom idea with stock cabinets from Home Depot or Lowes.
Create a mudroom space. This might be located right inside your back door or inside your garage. Make sure there is a space for each of the kiddos — and adults — to store shoes, jackets and backpacks. If they deposit those things before they enter the rest of your house, you won't be tripping over them in the afternoons.

Mudroom/Laundry Redo: When you're only 5'2", you really appreciate a built-in ladder to reach upper cabinet storage! Something like this would be great for our laundry/mud room redo!

Cute mudroom. I love that the unit is built into the wall and not a separate piece sticking out. baskets/coat hangers for each child.
Starting to think that I need a board devoted to mudrooms... Just made one

Room Crush: Mudrooms! Would love this one with its worn bench and flooring
Normally I just love chandeliers, but this foyer is completely beautiful and so homey! Love for the entrance, or a laundry room!
hmm if we were to make the front porch usable, although I still want to make it into a smoking room, but isnt that what the attached garage is for aaarrrggghhh
need to add large mirror; mud room lockers and storage; pretty enough you don't have to keep the door closed
I like the closed storage above the baskets #lockers
like individual openings with drawers beneath and shelves above
Love the wainscotting and black accents. The baskets need to be darker and bigger. Problem is, it only fits one or two coats for each cubby
