Diy storage kitchen ideas
Schüller’s clever utility room ideas permit you to save yourself from backache by raising the washing machine and tumble dryer to mid height, as well as fitting a sliding shelf underneath (for your laundry basket), eliminating the need to bend over to load and unload. Genius.
Make wall space to dry clothes
Short on floor space? One of our favourite and extremely simple utility room ideas is a wall mounted-airer that folds away when not in use – a practical option for drying clothes.
Hang above a radiator to speed up the drying process, or above a sink or draining board so your clothes can drip dry.

Make space for a wine cellar (you know it makes sense)
If you love to own a glass of wine when you’re doing your ironing (just the one, health and safety and every that), then you’re going to love this utility room thought.
A spiral wine cellar is an entirely natural cellar that can be installed under any ground floor room and doesn’t require an existing cellar or basement.
Built from engineered concrete, a Spiral Cellar can either be fitted cleanly into a finished room, or form part of a new home build, extension or refurbishment project.
Is now a excellent time to mention our circular up of the best wine fridges, you know just in case this is a bit additional for you?
Build in a washing basket on wheels
Even if you’ve got a laundry basket elsewhere in the home, it’s a excellent thought to own another one in the utility room.
A basket on wheels, which can be tucked under the work surface when not in use, will assist hold floor space clear and the room neat-looking.
Fit out every inch of a narrow utility room
While we’d advise against this in a galley kitchen, in a narrow utility room function trumps form, so built-in floor-to-ceiling storage on both sides that helps you maximise the space you own is a worthwhile investment. A combination of open shelving and cupboards with door fronts will permit you to hold what you use every the time to hand, and clutter you’re hoarding hidden away.
