There was one thing for certain….space was not a problem when redesigning this laundry room.
Our client was a pro at this point in the remodel world having taken on a massive kitchen overhaul with us 2 years prior to beginning this project. So we quickly got to work redesigning the space so that we could utilize all of the potential this large room had to offer.
The current laundry room was dated with sheet vinyl flooring, bright blue and green walls and juvenile border wallpaper. There was a decent amount of storage possibility, but the layout made it impractical for their needs.
Before: This photo shows the existing cabinets and flooring during the demo phase.
A well organized and sophisticated space was the goal for this laundry room. It needed to feel interconnected with the newly remodeled kitchen that is adjacent. Utilizing the large square footage to create zones for better purpose was at the top of our priority. Our homeowner and her kiddos use this room daily as they come and go.
There were 3 area of function that we focused on
- Laundry- All of the aspects of this needed to be addressed, Washer and dryer location, prep area, folding, basket storage and seasonal item storage.
- Drop Zone- A home for the kids bookbags, shoes, daily coats, etc….
- Home Work Station-Space for the different needs of the family. A place to do homework, pay bills, store kids school papers, etc…
During: The homework station taking shape
During: The drop zone area being installed.
The design elements for the laundry room consisted of a vinyl plank flooring for durability and practicality, granite countertops along with a stainless island top, dark stained cabinets and industrial styled fans.
I have to say that doing laundry never looked so good!!
