We don't have a separate "mud room", but we do have, I guess, what you would call a mud corner. Organization for the family is important. I'm convinced (after years of living in a small, cozy home) that no matter the size of your space you can make room to effectively organize everything. My current quest is not only to organize it but make it visually appealing as well.
This is our "mud corner" located right behind my front door.
Blessings to you,
