A utility room is quite a novelty for me so you will have to excuse my enthusiasm.
We did have a buanderie (laundry
room) in our French house; it was in the ancient pigeonnier tower and you had
to duck to get through the low doorway and then step over mouse traps and the
like to get to the washing machine. I
forgot to duck on at least one occasion and almost knocked myself out on the
solid stone lintel.
The utility room in our bungalow is small but accommodates the freezer, microwave and washing machine and also serves as a boot room - a handy area to dump coats, muddy boots and dog leads.
Last week the kitchen fitter removed the original 1980’s units and installed new cabinets to match the kitchen. Yesterday the tiles were put up and the electrician connected the new wiring and sockets. I am pretty chuffed with the overall finish. It looks extraordinarily shiny and tidy at the moment, give it a week and the room will be full of muddy boots and dog paraphernalia.
