Just that really: planning the utility, but lay-out is slightly awkward and not having a sink would free up lots of valueable space. We mostly want to use it for storage, washing machine, extra freezer and prefer to have closed units to keep it looking tidy as it will be main access route to the guest bathroom
As a bathroom will be right next to the utility I reckon we can do without a sink, but not sure whether it would be seen as strange. Any thoughts appreciated
Can i hijack slightly - would it be very odd/ risky to have bookshelves in a utility? Our new house has huge utility that used to be the kitchen, and we're planning on it being a kind of home office, where the washing machine/dryer happen to live, but not sure about practicalities! Re sink, we're planning on keeping it, just because it would be useful for muddy shoes etc as the back door off the garden comes straight into the dining room, and there's no downstairs loo/sink otherwise.
Hmm, we'd hoped to (mostly referen e books, there's not enough space for them in the living room, and we currently keep them in the spare room but that will be dd2's room) but I can see that it would possibly be a bad idea. Time for a rethink!
thanks all... I think we'll invest in an easy-clean bathroom floor & wash basin and forego the sink. Quite fancy the idea of wall to ceiling cupboards hiding all the stuff, so back to the drawing board now
