We’ll be the first ones to admit that it can be hard to get excited about the interior design of a utility room. A small room at the back of the house often used for nothing but storage, cleaning and household chores doesn’t get pulses racing! Those of us who are lucky enough to have that extra space can appreciate, from a functional perspective, the room’s main purpose; to keep the mess away from other areas of the house.
It’s an easy decision to make when redecorating our homes to leave the utility room until last. It’s a place that guests rarely see, and we don’t enjoy spending time in there, so why invest any time and money in improving it as a space?
Look at all of the functions your utility room provides you with and add up how many hours per week you spend in there. It can be quite a significant portion of our time. Why shouldn’t we apply our favourite colour schemes and spend time planning how to make the most of our often-neglected utility rooms?
