One of our pet peeves is entering into a home from the garage and stepping directly into the kitchen or breakfast room or... Since most of us have made the door leading into the home from the garage our primary entrance into the home, we need a transition space-a place to take shoes off (and leave them if the rule is no shoes worn in the house;) a place for coats (closet or hooks;) and a place to set things (cabinet/countertop.)
AND IT IS NOT THE LAUNDRY ROOM. I don't want to be reminded of the laundry waiting to be folded/put away the moment I get home. Worse yet, you know what it smells like when you don't get your kids' gym clothes washed right away
Here are three examples...
