Some of us might have had at one point in our lives wall closets taking the best part of an entire wall, but that isn’t noticeable staying rather elegant hiding your personal things away. Well, laundry isn’t what you would put on the mantelpiece either and therefore could sacrifice a 3-meter wall creating a unique laundry organizing station. Have your bedding sheets in there, kitchen towels, bathroom towels….anything that seems to get in the way of your every day to day cloth. It is a bit of work, but if you have that one wall that isn’t doing much and appear to have your washer and dryer there too, think of increasing the space and hide it away from the eyes of your guests and also yours for a more harmonious space.

Think of the utility room as an all-in-one cabinet. Especially for the larger things like the bathroom for instance. Sacrifice a lovely cabinet and turn it into a piece of art where all your everyday cleaning needs are hidden away, nicely, making cleaning slightly more tolerable.
