In the laundry room, designers wanted to keep the space light and bright, so they added all white fixtures, white, shiplap walls and white floors. To warm the space, they had butcher block countertops installed which, along with black accent pieces, gives the white space a little contrast.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, this laundry room is now a functional space. With front loading washer and dryer and an extended countertop for folding, this space is practical and very useful.
Keeping the small room simple and uncluttered ensures that this laundry room is efficient and functional. A side-by-side washer and dryer fit snugly into cubbies to provide extra countertop space. The black countertops are a nice, bold contrast to the white room. A white subway-tile backsplash adds a little embellishment to the space.
The center of the laundry room includes an under-mount stainless steel sink used for rinsing clothes before tossing them into the wash. While under-mount sinks add a clean, seamless look to countertops, they also require a great deal of skill to install. In order for an under-mount sink to be properly installed, it’s positioned into place from below, then secured to the bottom of the countertop with silicone.
This space proves to be far more than just a laundry room; it also serves as a multifunctional home office and hobby area too. The large L-shaped countertop remains clear for folding laundry and taking on other housekeeping tasks. Plus, storage cabinets above and below the countertop provide the perfect place to store cleaning supplies, extra linens and children's messy arts and crafts supplies.

To transform their dingy and outdated laundry room into a bright and modern-day utility space, design blogger Erin Loechner and her husband, Ken, renovated the entire room from top to bottom sans contractor. They added wood-paneled walls, enclosed shelves above the washer and dryer, tiled flooring, a concrete vanity countertop, custom pendants and handcrafted details, like leather cabinet pulls. Now, the space appears stylish and homespun but 100 percent functional.
