Don't have any space for a mud room and you really want to get rid of all of the junk that follow your family in from outside.
This will work for the single person who lives in a smaller home. Done right it can add to your design.
Now, we are adding more people with out really adding more space. The baskets on the wall hide a multitude sin and clutter.
I am hoping that this is the back door. Again, the use of hooks and baskets do the trick.
Use the space to best of it's use. An eating banquet.
Your space can have multiple uses. Here people can lounge around on the sofa and have long conversations. I love long talks around the table.
Under the stairs.
