Modern utility room ideas aren't just about picking contemporary cupboard doors and hoping for the best. While the style and design of utility rooms should be in keeping with the rest of the home - meaning if your style is more modern then you should of course follow suit – it's also about using more modern accessories, approaches and appliances to suit your needs.

In busy family utility rooms, having your washer and dryer within easy reach may be your key priority. In homes where dog walks form a major part of your day, you may need a modern approach to keeping muddy paws away from the rest of your home.
