This family may not have a big entryway but they have a wide staircase which they turned into a mudroom of sorts with tons of storage for every family member. This project was done by organization specialists, California Closets. Love it!
Would make a terrific mudroom entrance --- hooks for jackets, baskets for hats/mittens/hiking gear, etc. A bench to put on/take off shoes. The corner windows are a nice touch. The room has such a warm feeling to it.
