  • Make Every Space Count: Functional And Stylish Utility Room Design Ideas

    December 13th, 2022

    Utility rooms can be a really useful and practical room in the house, but they can also quickly become a dumping ground for junk if they’re not utilised in the right way. So whether you want a room to do laundry, store your pet’s things or simply somewhere you can use to dry the washing and store goods, you need a room that will be functional and stylish.

    In order to ensure that the room has a practical use and looks good, there are many things to consider, but the utility room flooring of choice is the most crucial decision to start with. 

    Why vinyl flooring is ideal for utility rooms

    Although there are different options when it comes to choosing utility room flooring, vinyl flooring is often the most practical and offers the best choice. There have been massive improvements in the quality of vinyl flooring over the years, and the Pro-Tek™ flooring we offer really is second to none.

    You might not consider the flooring an essential part of a utility room; it really is. After all, the room is going to be subject to a reasonable amount of footfall, moisture content, dirt, grime and potentially heavy equipment such as washing machines and tumble dryers. As a result, you’re going to want flooring that withstands this.

    Pro-Tek™ is proud to offer a large range of vinyl flooring options which means that if you’re worried about the look of your finished room, you can find an option that matches your needs in terms of style without compromising on quality. We even stock marble LVT flooring!

    The benefits of vinyl flooring

    Whatever your utility room will be used for, most of the time, the ideal utility room flooring would be water-resistant. That means you can run the washing machine and dry clothes in there without worrying that your flooring will get damp and destroyed over time.

    Not only that, but such a practical room is going to get dirty if you don’t keep on top of the cleaning. By choosing utility room flooring that is easy to sweep or mop clean, you’re setting yourself up for a much easier life in the future – and that can only be a positive. 

    Flooring of this type is extremely easy to maintain, so you don’t have to worry about spending ages looking after it – instead, spillages can easily be cleaned up, and the floor is robust enough to withstand plenty of use over the years.

    Choosing utility room flooring

    The great thing about Pro-Tek™ flooring is that we have a vast collection of styles and colours available, which helps to ensure that whatever you have in mind for your utility room flooring, we’ll have something to suit.

    With both light and dark colours, vinyl at different lengths and various collections available, we’ll help you find the perfect utility room flooring for your needs and budget. Not only that, but every piece is completed to the highest standard and comes with a warranty, so you don’t have to worry about compromising on quality when you buy from us. 

    We understand the practical needs when it comes to choosing a floor, but we also know that style and the way the finished product looks is important too. That is why we use Pro-Tek™  vinyl flooring to bring you the best of both worlds, so you can find great-looking flooring that you can rely on. 

    The rest of your utility room

    Once you have chosen your utility room flooring, it is time to think about the rest of the room and how you are going to be able to make it as useful and practical as possible. The first thing to think about is the room’s primary use. This way, you can determine what big items of furniture or white goods you need to place in the room first.

    After this, you could consider the storage options for the room and how to make the most of the space available. The good news is that there are some great storage options out there now, which means that whatever you need, you should be able to find something that suits your personal storage requirements.

    While practicality often comes first in a utility room, a beautiful design and colour scheme can help keep the room looking tidy and stylish, so it isn’t tempting to become a dumping ground.

    Creating the perfect utility room

    Everyone’s needs and ideas around the perfect utility room will differ, so you need to consider what you need from the room and go from there. However, as long as you start with quality utility room flooring, decorate the room as you would like, find functional solutions and think about sensible storage, the rest should come together nicely. Before you know it, you’ll have a practical utility room that the whole family will be able to take advantage of.
