What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Tour Sarah Susanka's Newest Right-Sized House
This is the view entering the house from the garage. This mudroom provides plenty of storage for coats, boots and backpacks, and there's a desk for organizing the family's activities and information. Toward the front of the house, we can see the stairs, living room and kitchen.
Dytecture added this to Customize Your Home Command Center
13. Hooks. This spot has enough space for everything a family on the go needs, including hooks for jackets and bowls for the dog.More: Corral Your Stuff in a Makeshift MudroomTurn a Closet Into an Office
Taking advantage of available space, like the wall in this mudroom, to place a desk can be a great solution. Your children can feel a sense of privacy all the while knowing you're not too far away to check in.
