Linen closet - Gather all your cleaning and interior home upkeep supplies into ONE location, like a small coat closet. Coats can be moved to coat hooks/racks in the entry to free up this premium storage space.
Closet turned into a Mud Room - coat hooks, bench, shoe cubbies & extra storage up top. Build shoe cubbies like this in coat closet at top of stairs? I like how the top shelving is sectioned off! Should do this to Finns closet.
