A window lets in plenty of natural light, and recessed lighting helps to give additional light to the space. To finish off the space, designers added a neutral, grid-patterned area rug to provide definition to the living space.

The end of the kitchen island is covered in the same hand-scraped solid White Oak planks as the refrigerator and freezer to complete the homeowners' request for something organic and unique. The planks are arranged in a chevron pattern to add a fun detail to the island and refrigerator and freezer.

The space's patterned tile on the floor and the backsplash continue this elegant vibe throughout.

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.
