Just like the space they illuminate, utility room lighting ideas need to be practical and functional first and foremost. Utility rooms are used for all kinds of jobs and they need to be ready for both general lighting and close-up task lighting. 

The decorative aspects of the fixtures and fittings in these spaces must come after you decided on the type of illumination. After that is confirmed the finishes and colours can be suited to the style of utility room ideas you're looking to recreate.
