Coat locker with bench plans,plans modern wood house,stanley low angle block plane instructions,software drawing furniture plans - For Begninners
Color-here is another inspiration pic from a parade home from last fall for the mudroom walls (so outside of this locker area) which would match the kitchen perimeter cabs which will be white. Lockers: Since there are just the 3 of us, we have 2 lockers that are 2' with a bigger 4' in the middle.
We have a very large pantry which will hold our chest freezer as well as our 'extra' paper towels, paper plates, napkins, soaps, dog food and things as well as much of our food. I think I need to make a list of all of the things I plan on putting in there to give me some direction.
I was thinking closed doors to keep everything hidden but I do like the flexibility of the open space with the bench to sit. I was thinking of brooms and that sort of 'stuff' in there along with bulky winter coats for dh and I and other winter gear - winter is quite long here.
I am undecided - pantry is huge and could easily keep them but there is space by lockers too.
We have 8' of locker space plus a message center, plus office, plus powder room plus 8' of closet.
18" - I thought one of them could be wired with plug for charging various things and the rest would be for shoes, gloves, hats and the like. We will have under the bench storage but I personally don't like my shoes in a heap with bottoms of one pair on top of tops of another pair (my OCD is coming out).
We still struggle with keeping expensive, electronic things up off of the floor, geesh, I'd think that would be obvious but not so! I am glad that you don't find 3' to be excessive and you are correct, with colder weather the majority of the time we have all different thicknesses of jackets and coats and the temps changes so frequently you never can tell which one you might need on any given day!
I thought about having a cupboard in that 4' space (one with a door) but not sure what I'd put there. I do not want to inadvertently end up with a large 'junk' space because I failed to have a plan for it.
If you plan to use baskets underneath or up top, make sure you buy the baskets before giving the carpenter dimensions.
