Mudrooms belong at the back door, entries at the front. They share some features but entering a home into a big mudroom isn't high on my list of good ideas.

We added a mudroom to our last house, Canada, rural, need a place to put the skis, coats, boots, leashes and collars, snow shoes, skates, bike pumps etc. Now can't live without one, our new house has a mudroom under construction! Pics of the old one. Wainscotting is easy to clean, has that country look, hooks on the wall for the most commonly grabbed items, or those still drying out, and there were two closets, one for the rest of the coats and one for gear, built into the wainscotted walls with strap hinges for a clean look. A bench is a must, for getting into and out of boots. The main entrance to the house also had a closet, mostly for guests' coats.
