Utility rooms are perfect for housing everything laundry, but typically you can expect these areas to be multi-purpose and provide people with the space to store the odd muddy welly boot. The rooms are also the favoured place for feeding and bedding down beloved pets. They are far from the traditional hideaway of the 80's and 90's however. They are no longer destined to be a 'shut away' junk room. Modern utility rooms are purposeful, practical and uber stylish.
