Here are some ideas for what our mudroom off the front foyer could look like. I like the hooks and bench, but another idea is to have a set of four cubbies (just like they have at daycare for the kids). That way, each member of the family gets his or her own cubbie in which to store their coats, mitts, gloves and boots. Whatever we do, it will be essential to have draws down near the floor so that the kids can put away and retrieve their mitts and hats. The high cupboards that you see in these pictures are not much use to 3-year olds.
