When I say ‘small mudroom’, what I really mean is ‘blank wall in the kitchen.’
I’ve long dreamed of having a back foyer/mudroom so we can easily drop coats, shoes, sunglasses and bags when we walk in the door. That dream didn’t exactly come true in this house.
But the house does have this stretch of wall in the kitchen that’s just perfect for a drop zone.

You may remember it looked like this when we moved in:
If you’re wondering, the wall color is Aesthetic White by Sherwin Williams.
For this space, I’m thinking of a bench with crates for shoe storage, hooks for coats and purses, and a key rack with some kind of storage/mail sorter so we could hide Oakley’s leash instead of hanging it on those gorgeous hooks. 🙂
After looking around, I came up with the design plan below.

Our priority for this space was obviously pretty, functional storage. Between the bench, crates, hooks and key rack, I think we have it covered.
We’re just putting the final touches on this ‘back foyer’ space, then I’ll take some pictures and get it up on the blog later this week.
I’ve also had some readers ask for more details on how I come up with room design plans and get from blank walls to a finished space so I’ll dive more into that, too.
Update: You can check out the mudroom reveal here.
Do you have a small mudroom? No mudroom? How do you organize the drop zone? I’d love your ideas as we finish up our space!
