Best of Both Worlds

This appealing laundry room and mudroom offers the best of both worlds, an attractive space that is also organized to make household tasks a snap. Easy-access drawers, well-placed cabinets, open shelves and even a pet crate make this space super user-friendly and functional.

Double Duty and Dog-Friendly

The double wide ventilated pet crate crafted from birch with a soft white finish includes a latch lock and ventilation bars. Outfitted with a comfy dog bed and pet toys, this versatile piece that can double as a credenza gives 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.

Hang It 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.

User-Friendly 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 store and transport clean and dirty clothes.

Easy Access

This view of the kitchen’s cooking area by the 5-burner gas cooktop with griddle shows the upper and lower cabinets, with easy-access storage inside for items like wine glasses, daily dishes, baking dishes and other kitchen and entertaining essentials.

Divide and Conquer

The kitchen’s drawers include dividers that help organize cups, saucers, mugs and linens. This type of user-friendly storage that has similar items grouped together makes it easy to grab supplies when entertaining.

Spices Within Reach

A handy spice drawer by the cooktop makes it easy to find and keep favorite spices organized and within arm’s reach. Having all the spices on display also helps you avoid wasting money by not using spices buried in the back of a traditional cabinet.

Pretty Pantry

The attractive and well-organized walk-in pantry in HGTV Dream Home 2020 includes a combination of shelves, drawers, hanging racks and more, to create an efficient space with all the bakeware, cookware and flatware needed for creating gourmet meals at home.

On Display

The open shelves in the spacious walk-in pantry make it easy to find just what you need, from bottles of water and cannisters of dry pasta, to breakfast cereal and baking goods. This user-friendly set up means you can also spot extra plates and grab rolls of paper towels without having to open lots of cabinets or drawers.

Open and Closed Storage

This white storage cabinet in the pantry does double duty, with four drawers that offer closed storage for various pantry items, and open shelves above that offer space for attractive baskets that group small items together.

Use Your Walls

All kinds of storage tools are utilized in the spacious pantry, including these hanging racks on the navy-blue wall for cutting boards, utensils, towels and more.

Multi-Functional Garage

The organized detached garage not only offers parking space for the modern mid-size SUV that comes with the exciting prize package for HGTV Dream Home 2020, it includes a laminated composite wood storage system for tools, garden supplies and more. A wall rack in the garage keeps a kayak off the floor and ready-to-go for the area’s numerous water activities. When the front doors are open, a pool table with bar cart nearby helps transform the garage into entertaining space for this home’s impressive front yard.

Chic Master Closet

This spacious walk-in master closet with rich teal/hunter green walls offers an efficient and stylish space for storing clothes, accessories and more. A combination of baskets, hanging rods, open shelves and drawers keep clothing and accessories organized, to eliminate wasted time searching for favorite items.

Gather Things Up

Storage tools like baskets and trays are a great way to keep similar smaller items grouped together. Use small baskets on shelves and larger baskets on the floor, or trays on open shelves to keep watches, rings and other small items easily accessible. Add a framed photo, decorative accessory or colorful area rug to give the closet a bit of personality, and bring it to the next level.

Open Shelving Shoe Storage

A tall cabinet with open shelves in the master closet makes it easy to find a favorite pair of shoes. Rectangular woven baskets on the shelves group smaller items together, while large handle baskets on each side of the cabinet offer a way to sort dirty clothes or store tall umbrellas. Baskets on top of the cabinet can be used to hold items not used very often. A woven chair by the cabinet offers a spot for changing shoes.

Attractive and Functional

A daisy-shaped wall mirror with seashells set on a wood frame adds a touch of coastal style this attractive and functional walk-in master closet, with all the organizational tools you need to get ready in the morning, or find the right outfit for a big night out.
