A true ‘Utility’ area, this hard-working little room is the sort of small space found in many modern homes, which need to cover a number of uses. In this instance, this small room already housed the boiler, but the family also needed storage for cleaning products and other items, a place to do the laundry, somewhere to hang outdoor clothing, somewhere for the children to sit down to put on their shoes and remove muddy boots, somewhere to store a full height freezer, but most importantly, a place for wine storage.
The original brief for this Utility room was to include a full height wine fridge, with different temperature zones, to store at least 200 bottles of wine. With space limited however, the wine fridge the client had in mind was really too deep for the room. The solution therefore was to place two medium height built-in wine coolers side by side at worktop height. As these wine coolers had reversible doors, we were able to install these fridges so the door handles were positioned together at the centre of the unit, giving the feel of one double door wine fridge, and the luxury of all bottles being at worktop height or above, so out of reach for the very young members of the household and no bending down or sitting on the floor to find that special bottle of wine!
As well as the wine coolers, this Utility room also hides a full height built-in freezer, a double bowl stainless-steel undermounted sink and a Perrin & Rowe Phoenician Monobloc mixer tap with porcelain levers. The whole room has been kept bright and white with contrasting worktops in Zimbabwe Black Granite, honed to a classic slate look finish, while the rustic multi floor tiles, pick up the natural tones of the oak window frames.
