HGTV Green Home 2010 features a laundry room that also doubles as a mudroom, recycling center, craft zone and gardening spot. Typically a room with this many functions would sound busy, chaotic and cluttered, but this eco-friendly hot spot provides plenty of storage space — both concealed and stylishly displayed — to ensure a crisp, clean look.

One luxury that designer Vern Yip was excited to bring to Urban Oasis 2010 was a washer and dryer. Although the small New York City apartment doesn't provide the space for a full laundry room, Vern was able to create concealed cabinet space right next to the refrigerator for the stacked washer/dryer unit.

At Full Capacity
Located in the snow-covered mountains of Vermont, HGTV Dream Home 2011 was built with overnight guests in mind. Luckily, the laundry room can accommodate large groups with twin washer/dryer units and counter space for folding and pretreating laundry after an active day on the slopes. Cleaning supplies are easily kept out of sight in the deep-blue maple storage cabinets mounted on the wall above the countertop.

Ultimate "Do" Room
One of the best ways to save space is to combine and create a multipurpose room. This HGTV Green Home 2011 space includes a separate spot that houses the laundry room, craft room and home office. Concealed by a double-door workstation, the washer/dryer unit stays hidden unless it's mid-cycle, making the room feel less like a workroom and more like a fully functioning space.

Not Just an Entryway
Laundry rooms were once recognized by their pure utilitarian purpose, but HGTV Dream Home 2010 proves the laundry room can still remain practical without abandoning all attention to style and detail.
