We designed and created a super useful utility cupboard for our clients in Crystal Palace, London. Their feedback was that it was lovely to be able to close the door on the piles of laundry, and the noise of the washing machine and tumble dryer!

Love these examples. We totally agree that they don't have to take up much space to be super handy and efficient, it's all about well laid out shelving and cupboards that are perfect for your needs. It's also great to locate your utility room closer to your bedrooms/bathroom rather than the kitchen necessarily. That way you don't need to drag the wash basket all the way through the house.

@My Bespoke Room. Our washing machine, pulley dryer, and ironing board are on the lower ground floor - no noise anywhere else in the house, and has direct access outside for drying when it's not raining. The bathrooms are on the second floor next to the bedrooms, so even if it were possible it would mean going down two flights of stairs with a load of damp washing and then bringing them up two flights of stairs to do the ironing! Good way to get 10,000 steps a day, though ...
