Make Double Duty Rooms Work Hard

Functional spaces need not be fancy, but they shouldn't be an afterthought.

1. For a small entry area, skip the coat closet.

Wall hooks and a bench get the job done without eating up much floor space.

2. Opt for easy-care, durable flooring.

Large-format tile has fewer grout lines, and a dark color disguises dirt.

3. Use stackables for a compact laundry.

Double-decker machines have a small footprint, leaving room for a sink area with open shelving, where you can treat stains and store cleaning supplies.
