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!
Possibly with regular doors instead making use of space between walls.How clever to have CD and DVD storage in the walls of the stairs via Home Beautiful. Something similar but with chair railing so it's accessible for up and down stairs
