Attractive and Efficient

A very light shade of blue-gray adds softness to the walls of the laundry room with mudroom area that sits off the home’s back door to the screened porch with staircase to the backyard.

Top-Notch Appliances

The laundry room’s top-notch black stainless washer and dryer that offer efficiency and flexibility make it easy to clean and keep clothes in great condition.

Flexible Features

Two individually-controlled washers in the same unit allows two kinds of washes with different settings and options to be run at the same time. The dryer also offers flexibility, by combining a conventional large capacity dryer with a delicate dryer so everyday items and delicate garments can dry at the same time.

Organized Storage

White shaker cabinets above the washer and dryer have custom shelves for storage of laundry supplies, with glass jars and coiled rope baskets for keeping items grouped together.

Stylish Hamper

A rolling cart offers an easy and flexible way to store and transport clothes and towels to and from the laundry room.

Safety First

A carbon monoxide detector on the ceiling of the laundry room that uses electrochemical sensing technology offers highly accurate and early detection of the invisible but deadly gas. Dangerous levels of carbon monoxide will trigger both the sensor’s internal audible alarm and the siren in the home’s security system.

Space for Everything

Two antique benches offer a place to change shoes in the laundry’s mudroom area. Hooks on the wall above the benches offer hanging storage for coats, jackets, handbags and hats.

Security Camera

Part of the home’s award-winning security system with wireless technology, a security camera in the mudroom area offers 24/7 HD video and intruder and motion alerts, with intelligent sensors calibrated to detect the unique heat signature of humans.

Convenient Utility Closet

A new utility closet at the end of laundry room by the door to the screened porch offers extra closed storage for laundry and home maintenance supplies.

Elegant Chandeliers

This view to the laundry room from the home’s spacious hallway shows one of the three transitional-style chandeliers with fabric shades and matte black bodies that illuminate the space and add a touch of elegance.

Handsome Hallway

A look towards the front of the house from the laundry room highlights the hallway’s millwork, with paneling painted the same white used for the trim throughout the home. The charming wallpaper above the paneling is covered in white birch trees with a blue-gray background. “This big hallway gives the home a great Craftsman feel,” says project manager Scott Branscom.

Easy Transition

This view shows the glass door with transom window above that offers an easy transition from the laundry room to the screened porch outside.
