Whistle While You Work
\"All the storage makes it a dream laundry room,\" says interior designer Linda Woodrum, when describing the industrial-chic space on the second floor. \"A couple of people remarked it was their favorite room in the house.\" Why not? With wall-to-wall storage options, sunlight streaming in from a pretty picture window and abundant counter space, the tight and cozy corner seems to be the perfect place to slip away and concentrate on important projects.
The laundry room, which boasts a clean bagel-and-white color palette, serves both as a functioning wash center and makeshift office, stocked with desk supplies and a French bulletin board. \"It really is the perfect family communication center,\" adds Linda. \"Everything is here and easily accessible.\"
Style on the Desktop
A woven-leather sorter keeps important papers organized and close at hand. It's paired with a matching letter tray with pencil cup and a desktop file.
Meet the Press
The office area converts easily to an ironing center. A cabinet-mounted ironing board folds up and recesses under the counter when not in use.
Now You See It, Now You Don't
To create a clean uncluttered laundry space, hampers are stored in narrow pull-out drawers.
Stash It High
Handsome wall-top cabinetry with frosted glass doors extends the length of each wall.
Stain Treatment Station
The single-bowl farmhouse sink, paired with a Victorian two handle faucet, blends seamlessly into the white Silestone countertop.
Fire It Up
A digital touchpad control panel allows the homeowner to regulate both water temperature and flow.
The Heat Is On
A Rinnai tankless water heater, which requires no floor space, is cleverly concealed behind cabinetry. The unit heats water only when it's needed, which means a never-ending supply of hot water and a major savings on energy bills.
A clear glass door provides privacy and also lets light filter through into the hallway.
