  • Boot room with substantial built-in storage system

    How organised is this boot room? Thanks to a bespoke built-in storage system, this entrance hall is not likely to become overwhelmed by clutter any day soon. Coat pegs, a bench, easy-access shoe boxes, plus overhead ‘lockers’ ensure there’s a storage method to suit everyone’s requirements. Neat idea!

  • Grey-blue wine cellar with wooden storage units

    Walls painted in grey-blue carry through from the wine cellar to the corridor, which was created from a redundant passage. When choosing storage, pick a modular system so you can position sections where you need them most. In the corridor, an armchair has been flanked by twin wall lamps for ample light while reading.

  • Neutral country utility room with drying rack

    Make the most of a spring breeze and dry washing outside if possible, or free up floor space indoors with a drying rack suspended from the ceiling. Hang up ribbon-tied bundles of dried lavender to sweetly scent linens and the utility room.

  • Pretty utility room with practical storage

    Get the storage right in a utility room, ensuring it will be large enough to engulf the clutter that comes its way. Opting for a cupboard with doors can be a neater solution than open shelving. And once practical choices have been taken into consideration, add some fun ornaments that have no real right to be there but create a wonderful sense of fun.
