The Beautiful Mudroom -- I'll Take It!

It's February, and it's been a rough winter so far, with lots of snow and ice.  I was hoping that this winter might be a little easier than last year, but unfortunately that has not been the case.  During times like this, your house can easily become a mess of coats on the backs of dining chairs (my house), with hats, scarves, gloves, boots, and shoes all over the place, not to mention the floor getting dirty from the sand and salt from the outdoors. Coat closets are usually filled to the max with all kinds of outerwear, and kids (and adults) are not the best at opening the packed coat closet, taking out a hanger and trying to squeeze their coat/stuff in between everything else that's already in there.  And, the coat closet might not even be near the most used door (again, my house).  That's why I wish I had "The Beautiful Mudroom" which so many builders/homeowners are opting for these days (smart).  Today I would like to feature some of my most favorite functional and stylish mudrooms.  Can a mudroom have style?  The answer is:  Yes, definitely!!!
