For the laundry room. If you need the extra storage, this idea is perfect for you! If you are more simplistic in style, go with fewer shelves so it doesn't look too sparse and keeps a "warm inviting" feel.
I love how large wide these are. The hinged seat idea is cool, but Id prefer an open cubbie below that I could put a basket/bin in for shoes. and maybe the top shelf not so high? at least on the kids cubbies.

H is for the Home: A piece of furniture like this is the sole reason I want to have a mud room/laundry room. Love the top storage - could replace knick knacks on top w/ large baskets for off season stuff.
