A great utility room takes on the qualities of its owner. Utility rooms are a place to store muddy boots, house pet baskets, and for hanging coats. They can also serve as extra kitchen storage for storing those cumbersome pans and pots, an extra fridge or freezer or even a sink. For many of us, utility rooms are where we also store bulky laundry appliances, freeing up space in the basement and keeping the noise away from the main house.
These rooms can make life that much simpler when carefully planned. According to Touch Design Group’s Dom Roberts, beautifully-designed utility spaces can lower the stress of having to deal with daily chores, making regular tasks more efficient – and with proper planning – almost gratifying. It is all about creating a beautiful and harmonious “work” setting that feels good to be in and which functions as purposed.
