The benefits of a bespoke boot room

Bespoke oak boot room

A bespoke boot room is a dedicated space for storing the essentials of outdoor life and for removing coats and shoes before you enter your home. This useful transition from outdoors to indoors keeps muddy footprints well away from your living spaces.

While a boot room is all about practicality, it can look elegant too as you can see. When it comes to the style of your boot room, you might want to mirror the design of your kitchen cabinetry and work surfaces, or give the space its own unique identity.

Whichever route you chose to go down, any boot room needs to be hardwearing, and easy to clean with lots of storage. All it takes is clever planning and well-crafted furniture.

Made to measure storage is the key to a successful boot room especially when it is an entryway to the home.

The ideal boot room contains a range of storage features to make family life easier. Open storage is ideal for everyday clothing and items that need to be grabbed quickly. Closed cupboards and drawers will hide clutter and open shelving at high and low levels will provide easy access to items like wellies and trainers. Bespoke cabinets can be configured to provide the perfect storage solution for everyone in your household, including your pets. Shelves, drawers, lockers, and pull-out racks could even be personalised for each family member.

Individual hanging hooks are an essential for favourite coats and bags. Coat hooks are simple but can make a stylish statement. They look more pleasing when they match your window and door ironmongery.

Floor to ceiling cabinetry will maximise the storage space and can be customised to store items all kinds of outdoor items from umbrellas to sports equipment. Bespoke cabinetry can also disguise unsightly fuse boxes or boilers, so nothing spoils the aesthetics of the room.

An integrated or freestanding bench with a comfortable seat is a boot room must-have. The seat allows you to comfortably remove or put on shoes. It can be built to provide storage too, with a large space for bulky items or with drawers for smaller accessories such as glove and scarves.
