Create A Utility Room

Utility rooms are great for freeing up space in the kitchen

MT260715

Relocating the washing machine and tumble dryer out of the kitchen frees up valuable space, and creates a dedicated area to dry clothes and do the ironing. Incorporating one into an extension is a great idea, but you can also build onto the back of an existing garage or incorporate one into a roomy downstairs loo. As long as there is a water and waste pipe supply nearby, costs should be minimal.
