From the article:
Unlike a front entry, seen by all and used by guests, the mudroom is usually a home’s secondary entrance. It’s one of those rooms that many older homes don’t have, and many of us pine for. It’s a hardworking space — even the tiniest of mudrooms is helpful for keeping the house clean and organized and the family efficient. Here are some inspiring spaces that showcase the elements of an efficient mudroom.
1. Hooks & Racks: Coats, hats, scarves, umbrellas, they all need somewhere to hang. If you don’t have a mudroom and want to start small, you could simply add a row of hooks. You could even do multiple rows to maximize your wall space.
2. Bench: Next on the the mudroom checklist would be a bench. When coming home, the first thing you want to do before entering the rest of your house is sit down and take off your shoes. Make your bench do double-duty by putting a boot tray underneath, or using a bench with a flip-up seat for extra concealed storage.
3. Cubbies or Lockers: The ultimate mudroom feature is a set of open cubbies or lockers. Have one for each member of your family so everyone has their own designated storage space. Provide low storage for shoes, hooks for coats, and high storage for seasonal items.
