Is the utility room the most under estimated room in the house? How important is your utility room? From the advice that people have been giving us on building a house, then I think that maybe the utility room (or mud room and laundry room) sometimes ends up been an afterthought. On numerous occasions we have people tell us ‘I wish we had made our utility room bigger’ or ‘I didn’t realise how important the utility room is’. So I have taken this nugget of information, from those who are in know, and I am taking our utility room planning very seriously!
If you thinking of building or renovating your home, then here is some advice that we have been given or picked up in the very early stages of our house build. This will be the first of many house related blog posts so I hope that they will be of some benefit to you!

Take some time to think about having direct access to the outside. Maybe you had two windows in you plans for the kitchen but consider having a door or double doors instead to give you direct access to the outside from your kitchen.
