Tasked with fitting a washer and two dryers into this slim laundry room, designer RaeLynn Callaway of Classically Yours Interiors had limited space to add storage. She configured the cabinets to make the most of every inch, including open niches for bins and baskets. She also paid special attention to aesthetics, with lively green paint and corner cabinets that house art and accents. "I have realized that if you have a 'happy' laundry room you have a happy laundry person," Callaway says. Fun colors, cabinet hardware, flooring patterns and decor can really make a difference."
Green Dining Room Uses Extra Space for a Butler's Pantry
A mini butler's pantry adjacent to this dining room provides just enough space for meal staging and overflow flotsam. It also takes advantage of an odd cranny that might have gone to waste with built-in cabinetry and counter space.
The corner shelves on this mudroom unit are the perfect place for mail, chargers, even a snack for four-legged friends. For pulling on and off shoes (or catching up on a favorite book), there's a bench with a comfy cushion.
Traditional Cream Laundry Room With Cherry Red Washer and Dryer
A cream colored theme keeps this laundry room looking bright and open. Ribbed cabinet doors and a washboard wooden door add texture to the room. A cherry red washer and dryer pop against the neutral backdrop. Over the machines, a hanging rack keeps clothes from wrinkling.
Large Walk-In Closet With Pronounced Marble Floor Tile, Mirror Closet Doors and Elegant Vanity With Lighted Mirror
Mirrored doors catch the light and create a reflective finish in this captivating walk-in closet. An elegant traditional vanity base is topped with a contemporary mirror lighted by sconces and centered in the open floor space. Pops of gray are pronounced in the marble floor tile and match the polished style of the room.
Built In Wood Wine Bottle Storage Shelves in Wine Cellar With Decorative Light Fixture and Natural Rock Wall Detail
Floor to ceiling wood wine bottle shelves cover a long wall for optimum storage. A lighted center row highlights bottles and brightens the structure. An elegant light fixture casts a decorative shadow pattern over the ceiling. A wine barrel is fitting to the theme and works as a table.
A plush sectional sofa and two brown leather armchairs provide comfortable seating in the basement. Built-in bookshelves flank the stone fireplace, which features a fish on the mantel, a nod to the lake setting.
A combination of open and closed storage makes organization a cinch in this butler's pantry. Rustic cabinets fill one side of the space with center glass cabinets to display favorite china, while the opposite wall has open cabinets with wicker baskets for easy-to-stow storage.
Traditionally, laundry rooms are located adjacent to the kitchen on the main level. Recently, though, larger second-story laundry rooms are becoming more popular. This sizeable utility room features all the desired amenities with a crisp, clean color palette. Design by Hillary Reed Interiors, LLC.
This customized closet was designed by Mosaik Design & Remodeling of Portland, Ore., to meet the needs of a couple that travels frequently. The his-and-hers islands with tops made of Calacatta marble are just the right height for packing and include benches for comfort and ease when putting on shoes. A built-in ironing board and toiletry organizers are hidden behind the soft white traditional cabinetry. We love the two unique, glittering chandeliers.
Wine Cellar With Built in Wood Wine Racks, Barrel Tasting Table and Elegant Light Fixture
Floor to ceiling built in wine racks, with middle illuminated bottle display, cover a large section of this spacious wine cellar. An elegant light fixture casts a decorative light and shadow pattern over the ceiling. Centered below the light, a wine barrel acts as a fitting and beautiful tasting table.
This laundry room lives much larger than its square footage, thanks to smart planning by Geoff Chick & Associates. The base cabinets that flank the washer and dryer are just 18 inches deep, but extending the wall of cabinetry all the way to the 12-foot ceiling vastly increases the usable space. Windows visually expand the room; the natural light flooding in enhances the warm notes in the soft gray paint. "Most laundry rooms are tucked away in a dark corner or in the basement," Chick notes.
