Grey pantry, utility, boot room and cloakroom

This stunning pantry, utility, boot room and cloakroom were designed and installed alongside a kitchen we worked on. The owners wanted to continue modernising their ground floor space, adjacent to the kitchen, putting the existing multiple, smaller rooms to good use whilst improving their layout. They wanted to take pressure off their new kitchen by creating dedicated spaces for other everyday jobs and equipment, whilst also tidying up the entrance way they used most of the time.


We worked collaboratively to understand the everyday needs of the

household and agree the best layout for the space as a whole. We decided

to create a laundry area with peg rail hanging space for ironing and cabinetry for cleaning equipment, plus space for appliances including washing machine and tumble dryer, both from Miele. Through from here we were able to create a walk-in pantry to store food and less often used crockery and glassware. Then in the entrance hall we created a boot room to keep this area organised and tidy, with each family member getting their own dedicated space. We also modernized the existing cloakroom. The zones were previously separate rooms which were partly opened up by our builder to create a free-flowing space with no awkward doors to get through whilst moving around the house, sometimes carrying items such as laundry and cleaning products.

The rooms were designed to work together with co-ordinated colours and details. The cabinetry and bead board panelling is finished in Paint & Paper Library ‘Lead’ with beautiful Statuario marble worktops and brass handles from Armac Martin. The oak details include open shelving, hand carved apple crates in the pantry and peg rails which all add warmth and coordinate with oak details in the kitchen. It soon became clear the households two dogs were important members of the family, so a separate pet cabinet was designed with bi fold doors to house everything pet-related and a cosy dog bed underneath for post walk sleeps!

The dog themed wallpaper adds a touch of personality and fun. The cloakroom features Samuel Heath Xenon taps and accessories in matt black and wallpaper from Cole & Sons for a splash of colour.
