  • 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.
