Love the idea of using a barn door to hide the cubbys in a mudroom!

I don't think open "lockers" are a fad, they serve a purpose. But of course they don't serve all purposes. I plan to install closed closets for storing all of our coats, boots, shoes, etc. But ALSO the open locker style storage for the few things we use every day. I think that is supposed to be the point of them. It's easier to put your main coat on a hook than to open a closet and get a hangar out. And then your most commonly used shoes are nearby, as is a place to sit and put them on. Also when you have guests staying, they will never open a closet on their own. But if there is an empty hook and they have a coat, they will put their coat on a hook. And if there's a space for their shoes, they will put them there. But not if they have to open a door to see where.

You can NEVER have too many hooks! We love the mudrooms with a seat cushion too. Why not make the drop zone a comfy spot to put on and take off your shoes?! We shared other great mudrooms in our Ideabook here: https://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/93474729/thumbs/mudrooms-we-love
