A nice tidy mudroom at the side entry to our home.  The compact and efficient storage easily handles shoes, coats, gloves, sports equipment, extra leaves for our table and folding chairs, a “charging station” for our power tools and toys, and more.  The in-floor heat keeps our shoes warm and is a very welcoming comfort on cold winter days.
