About us

At Utility Brighton, we sell no-­nonsense household goods: Where do you get a plain white plate and some cutlery? What about a tap swirl, a scrubbing brush or a mug without polka dots on it? Need some carbolic soap? Soda Crystals? Or maybe just some practical advice?

No frills, no fancy prices.

We are an independent housewares store in Brighton’s North Laine. Some say we’re probably the best independent for household kit. We have a huge range of stock – some from well-known, family-run factories and some from smaller makers. And some made by us.

We sell household staples that are designed so well that there’s been no need to change their format in many years, or ever. Think of Duralex glass or Silvine stationery : Simple, cheap, and good.

That’s why our stock seems comfortingly familiar and looks good in every setting.



If you want a helpful, independent and very friendly housewares shop but you can’t get here utilitygreatbritain.co.uk is the next best thing. We’ve tried to make browsing our website almost as fun as being here.

And we’re always on the end of a phone if you need us. 01273 626222.
