A mudroom or an entryway is often really small, I’d say tiny, and this makes it tricky to decorate right. You have to accommodate here some furniture necessary for storing your clothes, hats, scarves, shoes, boots, umbrellas and maybe bag and other smaller stuff. An entryway bench can help you solve this problem with its storage space, it’s comfy for putting on your shoes, placing umbrellas, bag, clothes and accessories and it can give a style to your entryway, so I think it’s a must for every mudroom.

Mudroom And Entryway Benches With Storage Spaces
Such a bench is number one for a small mudroom, it will be your seating and storage at the same time. These are usually benches with a plank underneath the top where you’ll place some boxes, baskets or drawers with your shoes, hats, scarves and other stuff. You can also leave umbrellas there – no boxes needed in this case; there are benches with special compartments for shoes and boots or, on the contrary, closed drawers for your things. No compartments or drawers? No problem! Just place your boots or shoes under the bench and you’ll get it!
Built-In And Tiny Mudroom And Entryway Benches
If your mudroom is very small and you have no idea how to accommodate a bench there, go for a built-in version. It’s usually adjusted to the wall and in some cases can be even folded, so you’ll have more space with it. Another way is to opt for a tiny bench, a really small piece of the size of one chair, if it’s really necessary for your mudroom.
Now let’s speak about the style.
