Mudroom advice please!
Hi, we are putting an addition on the back of our house. Currently we have a window over the kitchen sink that looks out onto our garage and driveway. In the addition, we are putting in a mudroom so the window will then look out into the mudroom.
The architect says we will need a closet, not lockers or cubbies, in the mudroom so I can close the closet doors to all the coats. That way, no one will see them through the kitchen window. I say I don't mind seeing the coats hanging there but he thinks I will... and I'll want to hide them from guests who walk into the kitchen and immediately see the coats hanging there!
But putting doors up will not allow me to have a bench in the mudroom, which I need to put on children's shoes, etc...
My question is this - should I put doors as the architect suggests? Should I get my bench and cubbies and just get a window shade to pull down over the window? Any other ideas?
