Utilise your space

Utility rooms/spaces come in all shapes and sizes and are used for a huge variety of purposes.

For some it’s a simple broom closet and for others it’s the engine room for the home encompassing cloak room, laundry and storage for the family’s sports gear and the odd bicycle. Here are some of  our tips to make the most of what you have.

Assess your needs and then assess your available space.

If the space is small, then make the most of the available height with floor to ceiling storage units without doors and room for a small step ladder so that you can use it with ease.

You can stack appliances if you need to or invest in one good single washer dryer to reduce the bulky machinery.

If the space is large, then plan it like you would a kitchen. If everything has a place from the beginning, then it will work so much better for you in the end.

Include easy to move baskets/boxes for recycling and laundry, Shelves for storage, a drying area if possible, spot for the ironing board, vacuum cleaner, a hanging area for coats, somewhere for the boots and a drawer or two for bits and bobs. If the room is a good size, then everything can be tidied neatly away behind doors and it will look just like a kitchen.

In our experience most utility rooms require a mix of open easy access storage and some areas closed with doors. So, don’t just fill it with low level presses and a worktop. Make sure you know what you need the units to do before you choose them. There are lots of great interior accessories that can be employed to make this space work for you. At the end of the day it has to be practical. It really is an extra bonus if it can look good too.
