I really like the reclaimed door idea pictured above. You simply mount an old door to a chest of some sort and then add shelving and hooks as needed. Now everything you need is in one spot! Hang your coats, store your shoes and put your random items on the upper shelving. Recommended tutorial: (Re-purposed door DIY tutorial by The Friendly Home)

A mudroom of entryway is normally designed in a way to prevent the rest of your home from getting too dirty. This can make decorating a mudroom very difficult. This guide will look at some interesting entryway and mudroom ideas so that you can make this important room look much more beautiful.
Tips when Designing a Mudroom or Entryway:
– Plenty of Storage
– Make use of Space
– Using Cabinets
Plenty of Storage
A mudroom and entryway will collect all manor of things. From coats, to hats and scarves this room will see it all. If you don’t have enough storage then the entry to your home will look very messy. It’s important to make it look tidier by installing plenty of storage. Use wall hooks to hang items, and also install some boxes in shelving to tuck things out of sight. A shoe and boot rack is also a welcome addition to any mudroom.
As the entryway is the main route into your house, you will want it to create a good first impression for any visitors. Choose a neutral color which is warm and inviting. Also make sure that the storage space you have in the room actually deals with all of your clutter and keeps it under control.
If you have enough space in your entryway then you could consider fitting a tall freestanding cabinet. If the cabinet goes right up to the ceiling then this will provide lots of useful storage space. It can also include hanging space for coats, and boxes to store gloves, scarves and anything else.
It’s not all about storage though, you should also try to incorporate a seating area into your design. Whether this is an actual chair, or a piece of furniture with a padded top is up to you. The seat looks great and makes it much easier to put shoes on.
