Look Mudroom Built-ins (Can we swoon over storage?) I love this when there is no extra rooms to turn into a closet room/space. "The mudroom connects visually with the kitchen by way of built-in cabinetry.
Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.
