Simple built-in to create a mudroom and/or storage anywhere from an entry, to kids room or in a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Put drawers under bench or have the seat lift up to store things.
Garage ball bin - love this design with hooks for helmets and small bins for smaller balls. Use bungee cords in the middle so you can take out balls at the bottom without digging! Plus lots of other garage storage ideas.
