How to maximise the space in your utility room…

A utility room is an essential part of modern life – but instead of viewing it as a dumping ground for a whole plethora of household items why not look at it as though it is an extension of your home. The more organised you are within the space the better it will work as a utility room, and having plenty of built in cupboards and shelving will result in a much tidier area.

Electrical goods in a laundry room always look better if they match, but how about considering having integrated white goods. Large farmhouse sinks are much more practical when trying to clean oversized pots and pans, and other items such as muddy boots and shoes.
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders to the look and feel of a utility room, you can go mad in this space introducing all sort of colours you wouldn’t normally want to have in the main part of your home. Making sure that the room has adequate lighting, such as spots will make the room feel far more light and airy.  
Having a hanging space, such as a hanging rod is also a really good idea as you can take items directly from the tumble dryer and place on a coat hook – which will cut down ironing. A built in ironing board is also a really good storage solution in a utility room. Having two tumble dryers – space and finance permitting will also cut down the time it takes to do the laundry.
