Utility room trends at the Housing Fair 2020

A lot of effort was put into the utility rooms at the Tuusula Housing Fair. The utility rooms had bold and impressive material choices. Some of the utility rooms at the Tuusula Housing Fair were smaller and combined in the same space with the bathroom.

The utility rooms had plenty of black details — black sinks, taps or towel heaters. We also saw a lot of natural materials such as wooden panels and log walls.

Sinks make life easier and more hygienic

In a functional sense, some of the utility rooms did not have a sink at all, so if you, for example, need to soak muddy rain boots or trainers, you have to use a bowl.

Having a separate sink in the utility room is always better for the hygiene so that hands can be washed immediately without touching doors and handles in the other rooms.

Laundry requires worktop space and drying areas

The areas near the washer generally had plenty of worktop space which helps you sort and fold laundry.

Worktop space is necessary in the utility room

Having plenty of worktop space makes the handling of laundry easier. Steel suits the log house well. Thin 20 mm steel worktop is Stala’s Seven.

Most utility rooms did not have a lot of space for drying the laundry. Even though the dryer dries most of the laundry, every once in a while you need to air or air-dry your laundry.

There’s plenty to choose from in wall and floor tiles

The colour schemes imitate the house’s tones and style. Many utility rooms had bold floor and wall tiles, and the use of colour had clearly increased.
