Utility Rooms by Schüller
The kitchen has evolved from being a room used solely for cooking into a space where family and friends gather and socialise. Because of this, there’s more need than ever for noisy appliances to be installed in a room all of their own and utility rooms, with their extensive storage, are fast becoming an essential addition to any modern family home.
Tall units are a great use of space in a kitchen and in the same way, make a utility room a fantastic functional area. The cubby holes in the doors of Schüller’s laundry sorting units allow you to separate the washing straight into the baskets behind.
The ingenious pull out shelf below the washing machine will mean less bending and the handy shelves or drawers within the same unit make great storage for washing detergent, cloths and pegs.
Open, tall units are manufactured to accommodate the extra size, depth and weight of free-standing washing machines and tumble dryers. In fact, the shelves can hold up to 200kg of weight, which is heavier than a fully grown Lion!
Maybe ironing could be more bearable if you had the space to just pull out the ironing board, do the deed, and hang the ironed clothes straight onto the rail in the unit next to you. A lower pull out laundry rack also allows you to dry smaller items or hang them up straight after ironing – genius!
A Place for Everything…
Furniture specifically created for utility rooms means that no space is wasted. A slimline tall unit is perfect for the ironing board, vacuum and broom, whilst the options for bottle crates, shoe storage and integrated drawers for cleaning products help create a multi-functional room which, not only has everything to hand but it’s all hidden away tidily.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
We’re all aware how important it is to recycle but it can take up a lot of space, be unsightly and be a bit stinky if it’s not stored properly. Schüller developed a solution with their utility range by creating a base unit specifically designed for housing recycling. It comes complete with two reinforced plastic bags, specifically for the job, and is all hidden away from view to ensure your room is kept tidy and any unsavoury smells are suppressed.
Whilst it’s true that any kitchen units can be used to create a utility room, when it comes to free-standing appliances, the units need to be a different width and depth to those made for integrated appliances. The Schüller Utility Collection has been specifically designed for purpose so the storage solutions have been thoughtfully designed to quash any potential problems and ensure that everything will work together. Seamlessly.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It…
Here’s What Our Clients Thought of Their Artisan Design Experience
“Fun, Friendly and Professional”
During Nick and Elisabeth’s Design Consultation, we chatted to understand their lifestyle and how they use their kitchen. Elisabeth’s a keen cook of French cuisine so it was essential that she had an ergonomically designed cooking area. They loved bold colours and wanted our designer to create something unique and functional.

“The right solution was suggested and it made it really stress-free”
When we first met Helen and Rob, they were unsure whether to install their new kitchen into the larger adjacent room or keep it where it was. We designed two options for them so they could make an informed choice and we visited their home to help them with their decision.
Helen and Rob were ecstatic with the end result, watch the video to hear what they had to say.
“They gave us confidence in the minefield of designing a kitchen”
When Steve was planning his kitchen renovation, he visited other showrooms to be sure he was investing his time and money in the right product and company. He says that the quality of our kitchens were superior and that we stood out to him because of our product knowledge and design ideas for alternative layouts and colours.
