Written by Laurie Palau. Posted in Gallery Old, Laundry Room/Mudroom, Uncategorized

This laundry room is responsibility for multiple functions, including outerwear storage for two kids’ backpacks, sports gear, cleaning supplies and let’s not forget, laundry!

Before the washer/dryer were side by side with nothing except a hard to reach wire shelf to store laundry and cleaning supplies. After stacking the washer/dryer, we created space both above and below with reachable, functional storage for all supplies.

By relocating the utility sink next to the new stackable w/d, we were able to fit in 2 custom cabinets, one for cleaning supplies and storage and the other for kids outerwear items.

Prior to re-configuring the laundry room, there was no where for the kids to hang their coats and backpacks. By making use of vertical space, we were able to install 10 hooks for the kids and guests.
