Despite its all-round usefulness as a general utility area and laundry room, the service yard is often overlooked by homeowners when home renovations are concerned. Get more out of this under-utilised space with a few quick updates that are easy to accomplish!

First, think about how you can make it a more functional space for yourself; you may want to consider adding more storage pockets and the like to keep things clutter free. Next, treat your service yard as an extension of your kitchen - build in an additional countertop to create both a nook for your washing machine and more workspace!

Then again, not all of us will be blessed with a generous service yard. Work around poor ventilation and/or tight spaces by outfitting your yard with an indoor clothes drying system or investing in a stackable washer-dryer unit.
