Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.
Would make a terrific mudroom entrance --- hooks for jackets, baskets for hats/mittens/hiking gear, etc. A bench to put on/take off shoes. The corner windows are a nice touch. The room has such a warm feeling to it.
