The boot room is one of the most underrated rooms of the house, but is used often harshly, in a rush, or for beloved pets to be dried off after a brisk walk on a damp autumnal morning. The space needs to function for the whole family and shouldn’t be a room just to hide clutter, but to be used as much as a kitchen would be.
The seating offers somewhere to sit and remove muddy wellies, coat and your gloves, but can also double up as much a much-needed storage area with lifting seats or open shelving. This will save your walls from being leant on and used to remove particularly stubborn wellington boots.
The taller units in the boot room are great for coats that aren’t used every day and the picnic blanket which is not used all year round. Incorporating our peg shelf means you have essential hanging space for the items that you use all the time keeping them within easy reach.
One of the most important things to consider is the flooring, with it being put to the test with mud and water it needs to be hard wearing. At Willow Tree we have sourced the finest natural stone flooring and consider it one of the best choices for the boot room. Take a look here to see our choices.
You might also want to consider underfloor heating, to keep gloves and boot liners nice and toasty for their next outing.
