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.
Clothes hanging rod between them.I love finding clever DIYs, especially for the laundry room. It's one of the places in my home that I dread. It is always a mess, full of clothes and completely disorganized.
