Back of House

Boot Room | Queen Anne House | Gloucestershire

A boot room to stand the test of time

This Edwardian boot room in our client’s Queen Anne country house needed to serve many purposes.  It was part of a busy, family country home where wellies, school bags, hats, sticks, coats and much more all need a place to be stored.

Our considered design needed to factor in the free movement of people and dogs, and the fact that as children grow older, their needs will change.

Space for change and traffic of the house.

The main entrance to the boot room was just off the vestibule. In one corner a staircase descended into the cellar.

A boiler cupboard hid behind the staircase, leaving us with one wall for storage. Space was precious in this relatively tight and busy room.
