Built-in Seating for Comfort and Practicality

Being short on space doesn’t mean you have to lose out on comfort. Bespoke, delicately handcrafted storage benches will create both a space to store your shoes and an area to sit while you put them on.
Tidy, unique and practical, a carefully crafted storage bench is ideal for tucking away items. And by choosing something bespoke, it'll be intricately and delicately made to suit your unique requirements.
Make Life Easier with a Boot Room Sink

British weather can often leave us with a great deal of rain - and mucky shoes as a result. If you have kids or grandkids that are visiting during the holidays, you know all too well how they love to traipse tiny footprints throughout the house.
For homes that have the space, installing a sink in or near to your boot room is a convenient, practical solution to ensure messy hands (or dirty paws if you have a dog) can be cleaned before entering the house. For complete versatility and practicality, opt for a tall tap with a pull-out spray to make cleaning a whole lot easier.
Boot Room Storage for the Whole Family
Little ones tend to have a shorter reach, but by placing hangers at a lower level for your children or grandchildren, you’ll make a sweet yet practical addition to your boot room.
The fear over these kinds of designs is the lower hooks and storage shelves will look out of place, but by choosing matching hardwood, the lower hooks and storage shelves will only add to the aesthetic.

It's perfect if you're trying to achieve the same look when renovating your boot room.

Smart, cohesive and contemporary, this style of boot room is both stylish and practical. Its gorgeous, freestanding boot storage unit complements the decadent wallpaper while the white cushion and umbrella basket directly contrasts the grey scheme.

Create Your Own Style Bespoke Linen Chest
Uniquely crafted with a beautiful leather and fabric upholstery, this bespoke linen chest is perfect for creating your own style - and it’s ideal for storing away hats and gloves in your boot room. With a comfortable fabric top, it’s the ideal country chic addition that’ll keep hallways clear from clutter and perfect for taking a seat. Alternatively, you could choose an Ottoman, the perfect place for lacing up shoes.
You'll also have peace of mind that something like this - or any other bespoke piece of bespoke furniture you add to your boot room - is made just for you. The best part is by working with a bespoke manufacturer, you can find a style that suits your home's exact requirements.
