Having an additional room for storage and white goods, such as washing machines or tumble driers, is undoubtedly useful. In this blog post, we give you some utility room cabinet ideas to inspire you in your own home.
Black on Greige
Our first utility room idea comes from Real Homes. It demonstrates how you can contrast light and dark colours with black worktops atop greige cabinets. Learn more about how to use greige in this blog post.
Light and Airy

To reflect light back and to tie the design of your utility room together, why not match your cabinet colour to your appliances. For example, you could fit light colour countertops such as our Duropal Glacial Storm worktops to pale cabinets.
Storage Baskets and Shelving

Utility rooms do not have to be large. If you have a small room that cannot fit cabinets, make the most of the space by adding worktops and oak shelves above your appliances, and fill it full of storage baskets.
L-shaped Utility Rooms

Much like kitchens, utility rooms can have many different layouts. In the case of this example by Home 4rt, this laundry room has an L-shaped design complete with Shaker doors and solid wood worktops.
No Space, No Problem

This example of a small utility room demonstrates the effectiveness of symmetry in design. Two wall cabinets positioned above the washing machine and tumble drier have been separated by a single shelf. Simple but effective.
Elegant and Sophisticated

Make the most of colour by selecting a bold hue for your cabinet frontals. Farrow & Ball’s Stiffkey Blue paired with warm coloured handles results in an elegant and sophisticated design.

Sometimes all you require is a worktop and a shelf. In this example, oak worktops and matching floating shelves have been installed for a minimalistic design. An inexpensive solution that is also quick and easy to install.
Single Wall and Full Height Cabinetry

Again, we see another classic kitchen layout being used in a utility room – the single wall layout. It offers plenty of storage and frees up space for a seating area.
Ceramic Sinks and Open Cabinets

In this example by Good House Keeping, the ceramic sink takes centre stage. There are plenty of closed cabinets but by leaving one set open and including in baskets, more interest is added.
Fresh and Easy to Clean

By adding light coloured cabinets and easy to clean white laminate worktops, this example is not only airy but easy to clean too – exactly what you want from a functional utility room.
