A boot room or utility room should be designed around your lifestyle and hobbies.

What sports do you or your children play?

Do you have pets, or need storage for coats, hats, hockey sticks, skis or umbrellas?

Incorporating artisan shelves with coat pegs ensures that coats and jackets are easily accessible and also provides additional storage above for more awkward items like bike helmets or horse-riding hats.

A well-designed boot room area with considered storage solutions can significantly improve your day to day living.

All our recent customers shown below have agreed to allow photographs of the completed project to be used on our web site
and give a short, honest quote about the service and quality of our work.


A small but highly practical Boot Room with shoe storage below a full stave solid oak bench top (naturally bee waxed).

With coat hanging on a tongue & groove back panel the high level large cupboards above allow not so often used items to be hidden away and little side dockets make best use of a narrow gap in the wall.

Finished in Little Greene French Grey (Dark) No. 163

It’s fair to say the basement of this lovely old town house in Newcastle needed some attention!
Nook was commissioned to convert this large basement space into a modern and practical utility room.

with solid walnut bench seating


Wanting to update her bootroom, Mrs. S from Whaton, Northumberland engaged Nook Design

to design a storage and seating unit incorporating a wine rack, vegetable baskets, tall storage for ironing

and Dyson equipment and plenty of shelf space for riding accessories.
Wanting a stylish but not completely fitted look we also up-cycled a freestanding hall table to match in Farrow and Ball

Smoke Green and upgraded the existing Belfast sink area as well as repairing and decorating the rest of the room.

A simple yet effective under staircase bootroom at
The Lakes Distillery, Bassenthwaite Lake, Cumbria.


The R. family had a small porch room at the rear door of their home leading out to the garden, just outside Morpeth.

With a growing family it became a dumping ground for shoes, boots, coats and other outdoor gear.

NOOK Design was commissioned to sort it out!

Giving each of the children their own hanging space, boot shelf and drawer for hats, gloves and scarfs

has created a more organised  area and much easier to look after

“Very pleased indeed; our new mini bootroom has transformed the chaos

which used to take over the back of the house.

NOOK Design, not only came up with a very good plan, but then actioned it with minimal fuss”
