When we moved in there wasn't really a utility room - just a tiled space, next to another tiled room / outdoor pursuits storage / mudroom / downstairs loo. We were informed they'd had washing machine and chest freezer there and following suit it's where our washing machine and fridge / freezer lives.
Utility area with 2 sad shelves
It also came to house a wine rack, the recycling, plastic bags etc - and was an unloved, slug trap dumping ground.
No more!! Clever and handy Pete has reused cupboards and counter space from the kitchen - This feels like a real bonus to the project - and has made a difference to the entire back of the house.
