A quintessentially British room, the word ‘Scullery’ possibly derives from the Old Norse word ‘Skola’ meaning ‘to wash’. The Scullery is more than a laundry room concerned only with washing clothes however, the Scullery is the ultimate cleaning and drying room for all items connected with a household. In days gone by, this would be a small room directly off the kitchen and would be the domain of the ‘Scullery Maid’, whose responsibilities involved the scrubbing of pots and pans, cleaning and preparing the produce and scrubbing the floors, as well as doing the laundry.
This charming modern Scullery room looks nothing like the dark domain of the Scullery Maid. It’s bright white units, paired with solid Oak features give a crisp clean but homely feel to the room. At the end of the room the homes biomass heat exchanger, has been screened by painted doors with Oak lattice panels. As the heat exchanger operates, it produces a gentle heat. Rather than wasting this heat within a cupboard, the lattice doors allow the heat to flow into the Scullery, and dry clothing and other items hung on the ceiling mounted clothes airier. To the right of the heat exchanger cupboard is an area designed for ironing with worktop height wall units, a small workspace where washing can be placed, and an integral ironing board which pulls out from one of the drawers.
This Scullery also contains a bench seat with drawers beneath. Wicker baskets, handmade on the Somerset levels have been placed above and the bench seat, which is flanked by two full height cupboards, each that open right to the floor. One of these has been designed to store the lockable gun safe.
On the opposite wall, beneath the window is the sink area and washing machine.
