The so-called mudroom used to
be a separate foyer for dumping messy wet umbrellas, raincoats, and boots. These days, a less literal interpretation provides a landing strip where family members can drop and store everything from briefcases to book bags, house keys and wallets to outdoor games. All you need to create your own mudroom space is a storage bench and some shelves just inside your entrance.
