#6 is fantastic! Its always important when designing a Mudroom area to be realistic with the storage. Most of my client's Kid's don't neatly hang their jacket,and leave their shoes as neatly as these pictures depict. Giving them a designated space that has functional Design elements is Key. Great article!

I got as far as the third set of white cabinetry, and just started laughing. White cabinets... in a MUD room? Do these people actually not know what mud looks like? I can only assume that 'mudroom' now has a different meaning depending on whether you have sidewalks or not... Our mud comes in on our shoes in clumps, in clods, an inch thick or more, gritty, gravelly, and sticky. It kills paint, eats floor mats, and then looks around for another victim! If you don't have mud, just call it a boot room, or something. ;-P
