Create An Attractive Utility Room

Create An Attractive Utility Room


Utility or laundry rooms are often considered as the most unattractive parts of the house, and are mostly neglected in terms of décor. We have taken a look at some ways to add some character and charm to these rooms:


Vibrant Colours

Doing the laundry is definitely not the most glamorous of tasks, but why not jazz up the whole process with some lively colours? Seeing as you won’t be spending much time in the utility room, you could go for some bold colours that you wouldn’t usually go for in the rest of your home, just to make it that little bit more interesting.


Add Some Nature

Utility rooms can sometimes feel rather claustrophobic, so adding some natural elements into the mix will do wonders to combat this feeling. Adding some plants and flowers in are a great way to escape the brooding feeling you get when doing the laundry.


Attractive Flooring

Most utility and laundry rooms will have very unremarkable flooring, so it’s a good idea to break that mould and go for something more attractive. You could go for a patterned vinyl flooring, or even a marble surface if you want that feeling of luxury.


Create Space

Once you have all your appliances laid out in your utility room, it will most likely seem rather cramped. A great technique to avert this and to create more space is to embed the washing machine and other utilities into the wall!
