Make the most of your space

The brief

To convert a garage to a utility room, organise and design the space to achieve maximum functionality.

The challenge

To incorporate all of the client’s wishes;

Under floor heating, laundry facilities, freezer, tall storage for cleaning materials, wc, storage for recycling  boxes, area for flower arranging, storage for outdoor coats, wellingtons etc. A ceiling mounted clothes rack and punch bag!

The approach

Access, services and natural light sources were considered along with the position of items that couldn’t be changed such as the boiler. Two possible layouts were identified and drawn up in 2D. The chosen design was developed in 3D, furnishings and finishes selected.

The Result: Maximum Function

Sally says:

“It’s a fantastic space, it’s warm and welcoming to come back to after a cold and muddy walk with Molly the dog, I have everything I wanted from the space and more. It’s a room that now feels very much part of the main house. The new door and window arrangement is so much nicer and more attractive that we now use the dining room more often!”

What our clients say…

“Claire’s support and advice whilst doing the interiors of multiple homes over the years has always been invaluable. I am an experienced client who generally has a clear vision but Claire has a brilliant knack of allowing me to run with my own design ideas, whilst incorporating her experience and huge library of sources to bring these ideas to fruition.” – Pennie Benjamin
