HGTV Smart Home 2013: Laundry Room Pictures

Both stylish and designed to make light work of large wash loads, the laundry room, the first space inside the home's secondary entrance, hints at color palette and Hollywood regency design style.

Designed to keep sand and soil outside, a secondary entrance located conveniently adjacent to the driveway and garage opens into a laundry room, where one can clean up after a day at the beach.

Hard-working yet stylish, the laundry room makes a designer statement. Vibrant green walls connect to lush side yard views and a Jacksonville Beach, Fla., street light banner doubles as artwork.

Energy-efficient appliances are tucked conveniently under counter; the muted titanium finish lends a modern sensibility.

A window bench offers a cozy spot to stop and kick off flip-flops and stow them in hand-molded rattan baskets before entering the kitchen. A garden stool may double as a laptop computer stand.

A series of black-and-white photos, captured by photographer Eric Perry, features local Jacksonville Beach surfers.

A pocket door opens to reveal an adjoining pantry/closet, which offers space to store beach gear and accessories, plus cleaning supplies and dry goods.

Both stylish and functional, polished quartz countertops offer ample space to fold laundry.

A touch of luxury on the countertop, a mercury-glass table lamp shines a spotlight on projects and hints at the home's luxe Hollywood regency design details.
