Bring back the laundry room
We now expect our kitchens and utility rooms to serve a complex array of functions from catering to social hub, workstation to play time. Thinking ahead will give you the storage space you need whilst making the design aesthetic pleasingly clean and crisp.
Utilitarian spaces such as laundry rooms and boot rooms seldom receive the attention they deserve — which is odd when you consider how often they're used. Built in cabinets will squeeze the most space out of your room so consider installing a combination of blind corner cabinets to cutlery drawers with dividers for the smaller storage.
Find space for as many cupboards and drawers as you have room for, then fill any empty wall space with our floating shelves or Suffolk coat rack. An open shelf is a great place to store all your vases where they’re safely out of the way but easy to see and choose from. Our Suffolk coat rack is so much more useful than its name suggests. Available in 3ft, 4ft and 6ft, and in any one of our 30 paint colours, you can use it in just about any room, and its charming pegs are the perfect home for anything from saucepans to scissors, bathrobes to bangles.
