How To Create The Perfect Boot Room

Aaah, October. 
The cosier evenings, the warming drinks, the roaring fires....

....and the mud, the grime and the dirty leaves! 

If you have the space, may we recommend 
The Boot Room?

plain bench. 2 levels of hooks. cubbies for shoes as they never get neatly stacked anyway.....

And if you don't have the space, please don't fret. It's an easy task to carve out part of your hall, kitchen, garden shed or utility room as a boot space.

Here's our Source Book of Boot Room essentials...

Lots Of Pegs
Peg rails are a great way to add multiple pegs to a wall. They add a touch of Shaker simplicity that feels right for such a busy space.

Try our stunning peg rails in unfinished oak. They come in lengths of 2, 4 or 6 pegs to suit your needs exactly.

Boot Scraper
Choose one with a heavy cast iron finish to withstand all that your muddy boots can throw at it. We love this boot scraper with its antique finish and simple detailing:

Wellington Storage

Organizing Ideas - Repurposed DIY Vintage Crate Boot Rack - utility area once more...

We adore vintage boxes for boot storage. They're large, airy and are pre-dirtied! We're currently selling a range of old-style Coca Cola boxes that would work well for busy boots and shoes. With an aged patina and metal trivet detailing, these will add a touch of vintage charm to your space.

Alternatively, try our untreated oak Welly Boot Racks. These are easily fixed against a wall, and will make a great feature, as well as tying in with our peg rails. Too often, storage solutions are either stylish or practical. We're always thrilled to find products that manage to be both.

Cast iron boot racks can work just as well outside if treated. Ours is sturdy, strong and beautiful (and available in store). What more could you need?!

A nice orderly boot room, yes please. Great for hiding the dyson.

With these Boot Room essentials in place, you'll have a perfectly prepared Boot Room, ready and waiting for the coming Autumn days.
