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.
Having a laundry room like this would match our home perfectly! I love the color of the washer and dryer and the counter top with a sink. You can get some stains out and hand wash a few things while you're doing laundry.
