Residential Sales – Selling Your Property

Yes, if done right, a utility room can add value to a home. Irish families like having a property with a utility room. Thus, it is an attractive property feature. 

If it is not done right, it can detract from a property’s value.

Three mistakes we sometimes encounter are:

  • Space should not usually be taken from another room to create a utility room, especially in a smaller house.
  • If adding a utility room, do not block the natural sunlight from the kitchen or reception rooms.
  • The relevant planning permission has not been obtained, and the works do not comply with building regulations or the utility room is constructed on the parting wall without written permission from the neighbours.
