When designing mud chambers, think about how your children will use the space. Jeffrey S. Brown, president of J.S. Brown & Co., said, “Most parents tell us that their children are better in open areas because they are more likely to hang their coats on the hook than to open the cupboard door and pull the hangers.” In this situation, low hanging hooks are the best choice. Children can easily hang their bags and coats in the row of hooks and release their shoes below. The mudroom walk-through by designer Sarah Richardson is a perfect example of low-care entry with children in mind.
