High Function Meets High Design

Don’t let the whimsical wallpaper fool you—the laundry room in HGTV Dream Home 2017 is all about maximizing function. But do take a cue from designer Brian Patrick Flynn when it comes to giving your space character: “I covered the room with different shades of white, navy, and medium blues with a wallpaper that looks like a bunch of falling feathers,” he says. Stainless-finished fixtures and appliances adds a eye-catching shimmer to this trendy small space.

Extra Storage

Placing your washer and dryer on pedestals not only eases strain on your back, but offers hidden compartment storage as well.

Must-Have Wash Station

One key feature that sets this laundry room apart is the wash station, which makes it easy and convenient to do anything you’d rather keep out of the kitchen sink: treating stubborn stains, rinsing out mops and cleaning cloths, and even bathing pets.

Fabulous Faucet

A gooseneck faucet gives you the flexibility to fit larger items into the utility sink if necessary. This Delta Trinsic® faucet in Arctic Stainless features patented Touch2O® Technology that turns on and off with just a tap of your hand. Coming inside fresh from a muddy garden or your latest backyard project? You won’t leave a trace behind because you won’t have to touch a thing while you clean up.

Hardware Worth Adoring

The stylish cabinet hardware adds just the right finishing touch for this charming laundry room.

Tucked Away

Brian added a long, modern wooden bench to provide a perch for unloading coats, bags, and sundries and to create a space underneath to tuck boots and shoes out of the way. Along the wall above the bench, an array of artfully placed wall hooks ensures everything brought in from outside has a convenient home.

Hardworking Flooring

The engineered wood floor has a chic distressed finish that stands up to traffic, and it’s also resistant to moisture, making it a smart choice for the laundry area.

Smart and Stylish

This modern laundry room is all about smart storage. As you enter the house, a compact utility closet on the left houses the ironing board and other supplies. Note also the vintage-look rolling laundry cart, which tucks neatly into a corner when not in use.

Hooked Up

The Delta Trinsic® Robe Hook in Stainless on the laundry room wall above the bench offers grab-and-go storage for jackets, backpacks, umbrellas—even sports equipment. These clever fixtures maximize storage capacity while adding style.
