Making The Most Out Of
Your Utility Room

The utility room can often be a room which is unloved and tired, but it can actually be a huge asset in your home. Many of us forget about the various uses of the utility room. Below, we explain how you can make the most out of your utility room.

What To Include In A Utility Room

Good lighting is a must-have in any utility room, as it allows you to enjoy the space. Lighting is also ideal to boost your productivity levels, as nobody really wants to do the washing.

A Sink

Sinks can be a great addition to any utility room, whether you’re looking for somewhere to handwash delicates or wash up. It’s ideal to have a separate space from the kitchen to be able to do so.

Easy To Clean Floors

If you store your shoes and coats in the utility room, it can often be the first one place you go with your shoes still on. If you have children, their shoes are likely to have picked up plenty of dirt/mud during the day, therefore having an easy to clean floor such as vinyl is key.

Somewhere To Dry Clothes

Drying your clothes can be a task during the colder months if you don’t have a dryer, so why not add some fold-away drying racks to your room? By having drying racks that can easily be put away, it saves money, space and time when it comes to drying your clothes.

Which Lighting Options Are Good For Utility Rooms?

Good lighting is a must-have in any utility room, as it allows you to enjoy the space. Lighting is also ideal to boost your productivity levels, as nobody really wants to do the washing.

Spotlights

Spotlights are perfect for creating feature lighting in a room and they are also useful for providing light in certain areas of a room. You can choose to have a single spotlight in addition to ceiling lights. This is useful for creating feature lighting or to create additional lighting for darker parts in a room. If you're looking for multiple spotlights, using bar-mounted spotlights is a stylish solution and the bulbs can easily be changed.

Rise & Fall Ceiling Lights

Are you looking for some statement lighting? Rise and fall ceiling lights come in two types, traditional and modern. The traditional styles are classic and timeless, they all feature a dome-shaped shade. Whereas the modern ceiling lights come in a number of different shapes and sizes. Both traditional and modern styles are great for utility rooms as they're low maintenance and create a lot of light. Rise and fall lights also come in a number of shades and finishes.

Traditional Pendant Lights

Another fantastic lighting solution for your utility room is a traditional pendant light, with a huge selection of sizes, shapes and colours these are not only interesting to look at, but are also ideal for creating a beautiful ambience in your home. Pendant lights create a well-lit room and still provide that classic style.

How To Decorate Your Utility Room

There are many ways to make your utility room look bigger. By decorating your utility room with light colours you can instantly make it feel brighter. Alongside this, try adding some spotlights to accentuate areas in the room that you want to attract attention to. Adding shelves and hooks also provides you with useful additional storage space.
