Create a beautiful yet practical utility room with streamlined storage from Moores

Over the last few years utility rooms have soared in popularity amongst homeowners. Design experts at Moores have confirmed that these once practicality driven spaces are fast becoming a standout interior trend that will continue into 2024.

With homeowners looking to create more task specific areas within their homes, Moores have been working closely with housebuilders to drive a specification that caters for a dedicated area for carrying out household chores – a space that has been traditionally incorporated into the main kitchen.

From sorting laundry, separating the recycling, and storing cleaning essentials such as vacuums and mops, the utility room might be one of the smallest rooms in the house, but it is incredibly convenient.

With some thoughtful planning and clever design choices, the team at Moores believe that a utility room must become a new build home essential, offering a highly practical but beautiful space with the addition of stylish integrated storage solutions.

Shelving is ideal for organising everyday cleaning products, whether in the form of an integrated shelving system or stylish open shelving. Laundry appliance housing systems are ideal for storing the washer and dryer comfortably on top of each other with a stacking system if floor space is limited, as well as adding a sink run for extra convenience when cleaning.

Choose from one of Moores 6 stylish cabinet finishes such as light grey or oak, and pair with an on-trend door colour such as dusty pink or sage green to complete the look.

Neil McDonald, Design Manager at Moores, comments: “As homeowners start to favour defined zoned areas of the home, it has become increasingly clear that the utility room is essential for maintaining this order. The kitchen has long been considered the heart of the home and over the last few years it has become a hub for entertaining and relaxing, not just cooking. Having a separate utility room creates a dedicated space for household tasks that stretch beyond the kitchen.”
