More square footage maximizes storage.
A small addition allowed H&H senior design editor Sally Armstrong to add a mudroom at the side entrance of her home to accommodate her three busy kids. "I asked for open shelving so I could add storage buckets in playful printed fabrics — one for each person in the family," she says. Dark hexagonal tiles on the floor conceal mud tracked in from boots. A bench seat upholstered in a bright yellow pattern adds a hit of colour.
