Sunday Morning Tip for Jul 22: Planning Home Utility Room

<span>Sunday Morning Tip for Jul 22:</span> Planning Home Utility Room
  • Opening Intro -

    Some people refer to the utility room as the cleaning closet. So be it!

    But it can also be the room where you manage your home utilities. See what we mean.


There are a number of day-to-day things that manage your household. Question is where do you store these items so that they can be easily found and retained.

Let’s list a few of home management tasks that need attention:

Items Requiring Day-to-Day Management

  • Cleaning the home using vacuums, carpet cleaners, handle cleaners, and chemical supplies
  • Sorting incoming mail to different members of the family
  • Dedicating an area for pet supplies, litter boxes, and other pet management items
  • Keeping school supplies, writing instruments, paper clibs, and other
  • Storing extra linens, food, seasonal clothing, etc.

And while we are add it, let’s talk about home automation and safey:

  • Setting up home automation, networking and security wiring and dissemination
  • Monitoring your energy saving devices such as solar, wind and other utility savings
  • Keeping in one place safety items that include your first aid, medicines, fire safety, and other

Thus, you can now see why having a home utility room plays a major role in home management.

Home Utility Room Functions

You can use the home utility room as your laundry room with shelving and cabinets for folding and storing extra linens and bedding.

It can also function as your cleaning room – a place to store your cleaning machines like vacuums, floor cleaners, brooms and mops. Again with cabinetry, you could safely store cleaning chemicals up high away from prying hands.

The utility room can become your “family notification” room. Though we don’t get mail as often as we used to, notifications such as bills, DMV renewals, tax statements, and personal letters and invitations can be inserted in name slots for easy storing and distribution.

Combine it with a counter desk to house the family computer or other electronics.

House Electronics and Home Networking

A utility room comes in handy for home wiring and management. In the age of WIFI, internet, home security, etc., having your outside connections coming into your utility room gives you a central place to disseminate the network and/or WIFI to other areas of the home.

How about moving into the future where your home becomes more energy efficient. You could use this area to setup utility monitoring of solar panels, wind power, and other energy saving devices.

Consider your home utility room as your home management room. It is something we don’t remodel our house for, but it space permits, it might be something you might want to add if you are remodeling major sections of your home.
