For this laundry room, Mark Warren of Warren Home Restorations Inc. wanted to combine efficient storage and ample light with pleasing design that would blend with the rest of the home. An apron-front sink makes a pretty stand-in for a utility sink. To the right, specially sized niches hold laundry baskets that make sorting and toting a snap.
A robin's egg blue farmhouse sink draws the eye into this contemporary kitchen flanked by dark black cabinets and white stone countertops. Chalkboard paint on the refrigerator adds fun and versatility.
