Get the look

Extensions don’t necessarily need to be physically large to make a big impact: sometimes, simply having a little more space to spread out for daily housekeeping jobs or maintenance tasks can help your whole home run a lot more smoothly, without eating up too much exterior square footage. When it comes to creating a utility room, don’t overlook the aesthetics: yes, this is a functional ‘working’ space but it will make chores feel easier if the environment is a pleasant one to be in (and if space permits, you could even sneak in an armchair to act as a corner of respite). Practicality is key, so bring in hard–working surfaces like wood and metal, opt for easy-clean flooring such as tiles or vinyl, and include lashings of storage and shelving alongside a few aesthetic pieces such as plants and pretty storage baskets.

Industrial accents make sense here, but equally bringing in some country-style elements can help create a look that feels smart-rustic rather than austere. Utilising simple block designs, such as chequerboard flooring and a graphic patterned floor runner, will add interest and personality, and can provide you with a colour palette to pick up on across walls and skirting boards, to tie the space together.
