UTIL­ITY ROOMS

Country Living (UK) - - Storage Solutions -

STOR­AGE IS PARA­MOUNT in this hard­work­ing and prac­ti­cal space, but you can still make it ap­peal­ing in ap­pear­ance. Con­sider hav­ing wooden cup­boards made to con­ceal ap­pli­ances, much as you would in a kitchen, and then keep a lim­ited amount of smaller pieces to hand on work­tops or shelves. Bas­kets, boxes, bot­tles and lid­ded jars can be a solution for clean­ing prod­ucts and help to make them look more at­trac­tive. Try not to think in purely util­i­tar­ian terms. In­tro­duc­ing some colour, fab­ric or pat­tern will soften the room and make it look less hard and func­tional. But if you are go­ing for a spartan aes­thetic, opt for just a few items on dis­play that add vis­ual in­ter­est.
