Last Monday I shared my kitchen makeover on Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naptimes. It was great to meet more new bloggers, all with a passion of home decor, and there is nothing like some before and after pics of a makeover.
I did not include our utility room in last week’s post. This is the small room which you come through to enter the kitchen from outside. It seems that in the US this would be your laundry room or maybe your mud room? It is still quite compact, and I had to stand OUTSIDE the room to take many of these photos!
Here it is now
Before the makeover it had some flimsy cupboards, some left over carpet tiles and inadequate storage. Very untidy baskets from Ikea on a shelf and lots of mess.
There was a dog-shaped (!) coat hook which was inadequate and too low down.
Now the units match the kitchen. I have much more storage, and the floor is very easy to keep clean. George the cat still sleeps here night, and he too seems to approvetoo.
We have moved the kids coats to this new row of coat hooks, which seems to make the room appear wider, and gives us more room in our downstairs cloakroom for visitors coats.
New work tops
More electric sockets
New peg rail
New spotty brush and dustpan!
If you missed the kitchen makeover which I revealed last week, here is a peak at what you missed, but you can see it all HERE.
So do you have an extra room like our utility room, and if so, what is it called, and what do you put in it? Homes in different countries fascinate me!
