Calm Workspace

The well-organized laundry room has a clean, modern look with a soothing taupe and gray color palette. “Laundry rooms can be quite stressful, especially with all the mess and the utilitarian work that is done, so I wanted to keep the palette very, very serene,” says designer Tiffany Brooks.

Plenty of Storage

The high-gloss, slate-gray cabinetry keeps the room organized and uncluttered. The sleek surface of the frameless cabinets and drawers makes them easy to keep clean.

Special Feature

A dog shower with a polished-chrome hand sprayer doubles as a utility sink, providing a handy way to wash pets, clean boots or shoes, water the plants or pretreat laundry. Abstract art on the wall above the dog shower adds an unexpected touch of style.

Hanging Storage

A handy rack on the wall by the pet shower includes hooks for hanging dog leashes and keeping towels nearby for drying off furry friends after bath time.

Safe and Stylish

In addition to the polished-chrome hand sprayer, the utility shower also includes a pressure-balancing valve with push-button diverter that keeps the water temperature consistent and safe for pets. The shower walls are lined with close-set, cream-colored penny-round ceramic tiles with a dark-gray grout to add sharp visual impact.

Schedule Feedings

A smart pet feeder in the laundry room allows a pet owner to automate a pet’s daily meals, personalize food options and be notified when a pet has been fed.

User-Friendly Skylights

Solar-powered skylights use data from a number of sources, including online weather forecasts, indoor temperatures, and humidity and carbon dioxide levels, to automatically open or close the skylight or move the blinds for optimum energy efficiency.

Advanced Clothing Care

The laundry room’s stacked front-load washer with a steam option and vented electric dryer with stainless steel basket use the latest technology to keep clothes clean and looking their best.

Color Scheme

The laundry room’s taupe walls and crisp white countertops provide a striking yet serene contrast to the shiny slate-gray cabinetry.

Get Clothes Clean

The HGTV Smart Home 2020 includes a hand-picked selection of laundry products designed to remove stubborn stains, keep whites white and extend the life of your favorite clothes.

Remove Stains Safely

Using the power of oxygen, this versatile stain and odor remover works on dirty and stinky laundry, from smelly socks to musty towels. This chlorine-free and color-safe product can also be used to tackle sweat stains and odors.

Tackle Tough Stains

This foam laundry stain remover with a unique thick formula gently removes the toughest stains, including grease. The product’s thick foaming action gently penetrates fibers to remove stains, but is gentle enough to be used on washable delicate clothing.

Anti-Fade Technology

Remove stains and help prevent fading and piling on black and dark fabrics with this advanced liquid laundry booster, which works with your laundry detergent to extend the life of your clothing and keep your favorite garments looking newer longer.

Keep Whites White

A chlorine-bleach alternative, this laundry whitener and stain remover liquid works with laundry detergent to whiten white clothes 40% better than chlorine bleach with no chlorine smell. Also safe on colors, you can now maintain and revive those dingy white clothes and help keep them looking new longer.

Versatile Solution

The laundry room also includes a versatile chlorine-free and color-safe stain remover that gives you a go-to solution for tough stains on laundry and almost any other surface in your home.

Organized Storage

The spacious shelves inside the cabinets provide plenty of room for laundry supplies and common household items.

Stylish and Practical Flooring

This view looking into the hallway outside highlights the 100%-waterproof luxury vinyl flooring used in the laundry room and throughout much of the home.

Colorful and Fun

The hallway also opens to this bold-colored powder room with its gorgeous statement sink. “I had to paint the space a color that matched the personality of the sink and faucet, so I reached for this plum color with lots of fuchsia as its undertones in there,” says designer Tiffany Brooks.

Touch of Personality

Abstract art adds extra style to the powder room walls by picking up some of the rose-gold tones used throughout the space.

Floral Statement Sink

The vessel sink under the powder room’s voice-activated and lighted mirror is decorated with a dramatic floral pattern on a black background.

Minimalist and Modern

The powder room’s modern faucet features a high spout and a straight, ergonomic lever handle for easy operation. This durable faucet made of brass construction has temperature memory that allows the faucet to be turned on and off at any temperature setting.

Next-Generation Toilet

This white compact one-piece intelligent toilet with integrated personal cleansing offers maximum hygiene with a modern, minimalist style. The toilet includes an elongated bowl for added room and comfort, adjustable settings for the heated seat, dryer and water temperature, and motion-activated, hands-free opening/closing of the seat and cover.

Attractive and Efficient

Located in the hallway just off the powder room, this efficient mudroom offers storage space for everyday items and display space for collectibles. A set of oval blue/gray stools provides a convenient spot to put on your shoes before heading out to the garage.

Within Easy Reach

The mudroom offers a handy spot for the keys you need as you head into the garage, storing daily mail, or keeping your favorite issues of HGTV Magazine within easy reach.

Vintage Style

This spacious library bookcase with a patina-style finish anchors the mudroom. “I used this piece of furniture to kind of give that vintage industrial feel,” says designer Tiffany Brooks. “It’s very versatile with adjustable shelving and a removable sliding door so you can store shoes, boots, hats, things like that in there.”

Beautiful and Safe

Framed art and a touch-to-wake keypad for the home’s customizable security system sit on the mudroom wall by the door to the garage. The advanced security system protects the inside and outside of this home and allows homeowners to control the technology using a smartphone or computer.

Easy Connection

This wider view shows how the mudroom connects to the garage, with more abstract art and hooks on the walls for hanging coats, jackets and more.
