If you are lucky enough to have a mudroom or utility room, you could look for mudroom benches and mudroom lockers for these particular rooms. The mudroom bench provides a comfortable seating area for you and your family to change shoes and dress up into winter gear. The bench also provides ample storage space underneath the seat for any items you wish to store. These items could include boots and shoes, other outdoor gear, or even small gardening tools. For a more comfortable sitting, you could add cushions to the seat as most of these benches are made from hardwood.
This would also be a great place to get your child′s name in a font you choose and have it cut as an entryway wall decal and use this space to mark off their height on the wall and you watch them grow through the years, it can be a nice piece of history in your family. If you want to keep this forever and think you might move, simply put a painted board between the two shelves decorate it with the vinyl motif that you like and then it can removed and taken to your new place or it can go with your child when they get their own place.
