With the growing popularity of open-plan spaces, having a designated boot room can be priceless when it comes to maintaining a clean, organised home.

The perfect boot room is just as much about creating a practical space for the whole family as it is about clearing clutter. Strong wall shelves and coat pegs are crucial, so make the most of any available wall space by making sure you have somewhere to hang coats up to dry.

Overhead storage with cubby holes for hats and gloves is always helpful, along with a boot storage bench, which provides storage space as well as somewhere to sit and pull boots on wen you’re getting ready to face the great outdoors.

Hide wellies and everyday shoes out of the way if you can, but be sure to plan this area close to the door to avoid treading mud through the room.

If you have the space, a large butlers sink for rinsing off muddy pets and shoes will prove incredibly useful and practical. How about including some built-in storage for your pooch by creating a handsome pet bed with useful cubby hole storage above for shoes, wellies, dog leads and toys?
