For the Love of Laundry
Behind the Design
Laundry is one of those unavoidable facts of life. Many of us find it to be a boring, never-ending task. As designers, we never miss an opportunity to bring joy into our clients home. No room is overlooked. This laundry room was a part of a home addition that we designed and built. This room is up to the task of cheering up anyone assigned to the pesky job of doing the laundry. We took this room as a chance to take some risks with design that the client might have otherwise hesitated to incorporate into the main areas of the home. We punched up the wow factor with a decorative floral wallpaper on the ceiling and a stunning gold light fixture. An earthy pink paint color covers the many cabinets to store all of those unsightly items we don’t necessarily want to look at. There is plenty of counter space for all of that folding that needs to be done on the gorgeous quartzite countertops. A farmhouse sink adds a touch of vintage, timeless style.
Custom built-ins that extend from floor to ceiling have unique detailed molding and marble drawer and door pulls. We especially love the shelving that houses a basket for each family member to help stay well organized. At the end of the laundry room is a little office nook with a custom built-in walnut desk. We chose vintage hardware to give it a timeless look and feel. The fabric we used in the roman window treatment ties in with the beautiful paint color of the cabinetry. What is not to love in this one of a kind room?
