We could put one in the basement by the outside door that allows access to the basement but it wouldn't be practical as the basement door is on the opposite side of the house of the driveway.
So our compromise is going to be to build coat and "stuff" storage in our entryway. There is a spot behind the front door that is unused and should work for this. We currently have a mirror and small chest of drawers as well as a hall tree there. Works but not great.
Anyways, since our upstairs remodel has been put on the back burner, I think this is a manageable project to take on in the next several months.
Here are some inspiration photos:
