Coat closet attached to bench area. Nice way to keep bulky coats out of the way. Hooks above bench can be mainly for hats & scarves, etc. Need spot (off the bench and floor) to store bags/backpacks & my purse. Maybe hook or shelf inside coat closet?
beautiful cabinet color and mudroom design. You could consider adding a little bench that connects from mudroom side around wall leading to den. Would give some added storage under and another place for them to sit and get ready.
