Strategic Location

The strategic location of this super functional laundry room and mudroom allows you to get from the detached garage to the back of the house, without having to enter the rest of the home.

Special Feature

This laundry room and mudroom includes this double wide ventilated pet crate outfitted with a comfy dog bed and pet toys that gives the furry members of the family a comfortable spot for lounging. “If you’re someone who has a pet that needs to be put away during entertaining time, it’s super-friendly because there’s a lot of room for them to move around,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.

Bright and Airy

Large windows above the pet crate with roman shades overlook the back of the home and bring lots of natural light inside this bright and airy space. The door seen to the right of the windows leads to the backyard, with a grassy area with gray pavers and an outdoor kitchen.

Versatile Piece

Crafted from birch with a soft white finished base and streamlined design, the pet crate includes a latch lock and ventilation bars. This versatile piece of furniture that can also double as a credenza is odor-, rust- and stain-resistant.

Coastal Style

A circular accent mirror modeled after a traditional porthole with a gleaming glass center and weathered finish frame decorates one of the laundry room’s spring green walls, and fits the coastal style of this spectacular Hilton Head Island, South Carolina home.

Laundry Supplies

The spacious birch counter above the pet crate includes a variety of top-notch laundry products, designed to clean clothes and make them stay fresher longer. This space can also be used to store dog food containers, treats and other pet essentials.

Waterproof Floor

The easy-to-clean, durable and waterproof porcelain tile floor with veining and white grout offers the rich look of Carrera marble. “We did not do hardwood in here,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “We thought it would be smart, since this is where a lot of people will have bathing suits on and also flip-flops.”

Center Stage

A round pedestal table made from manufactured and solid wood with a brown top and white base and galvanized steel side chairs sits center stage in the space, offering a place to relax or enjoy a quick snack while waiting for clothes in the dryer.

Rustic Look

The handsome rustic top of the pedestal table has a lovely pattern, and offers a spot for reading the day’s mail or the latest magazines.

Natural Rug

A round woven rug in a natural tone helps define the seating area and adds warmth under the pedestal table.

Hang Things Up

A hanging wall organizer by the laundry room and mudroom’s pet washing station includes hooks for jackets and dog leashes, cubby holes for folded towels, and an open top shelf for books and a potted plant.

Extra Security

A keypad by the door that part of the home’s top-notch wireless security system beeps when the alarm is triggered to distract any intruders. Unlike other wireless security systems, if the keypad is smashed the alarm will continue to function.

Handy Stools

A pair of handy galvanized steel stools with a durable powder coated finish provide easy seating that can be moved around the room where needed.

Pet Washing Station

This deep single bowl sink in the laundry room and mudroom’s user-friendly pet washing station is located on a single wall of cabinets that also includes the room’s main sink.

Handy Shower

The pet washing station includes a handy four-setting, two-in-one faucet mounted to the wall a bit higher like a showerhead, with a matte black finish and a built-in soap dispenser that makes washing a pet easier. The rectangular mirror above includes a beautiful frame hand woven from Buri rope that fits the coastal style of this impressive home. A terra-cotta pot planter on the counter gives the chance to add some greenery to the space.

Get Chores Done

The room’s main single bowl sink located on the same wall includes a matte black single handle pull-down faucet with advanced technology helps get household chores done.

Easy-Access Storage

A combination of drawers and cabinets around the main sink area offers easy-access storage for various household, garden and pet supplies.

Chic Cabinets

The matte white with taupe cabinets and drawers in this busy space include slate vertical graining that makes them beautiful and unique.

Go Online

The round laundry room and mudroom table also offers a great spot for going online to pay bills, checking emails, the latest news, or the upcoming schedule for your favorite HGTV show.

Landscape Art

Lovely landscape art in different sizes decorate a wall in the laundry room and mudroom. The art pops against the classically patterned cement tiles that include different shades of gray, that help tone down the green walls.

Well-Designed Laundry Area

Upper cabinets above the laundry room’s advanced washer and dryer offer concealed storage for cleaning supplies, with open space on top for baskets that can hold household items not used daily. A commercial laundry cart on wheels offers an easy way to transport clean and dirty clothes.

Extra Protection

A water sensor by the washer, part of the home’s top-notch wireless security system, triggers an audible alarm when it comes in contact with water. This extra layer of protection helps protect the laundry room and home from flood and water damage.

Get Clothes Clean

The laundry room’s top-notch front load smart washer and smart front load electric dryer with advanced moisture sensing includes quartz counters above for folding clothes and storing extra laundry supplies.

Easy Access

This door in the laundry room and mudroom offers access to the stairs that lead down to the side entrance of the detached garage, a well-detailed space that can be used for casual front yard entertaining.
