Baskets are labeled with wooden tags to serve as both recycling bins and catchalls for toys, shoes or tools in the laundry room and mudroom of HGTV Green Home 2010. A four-foot work island is topped with quartz and features an oversized farm sink with sliding hardwood cutting board.
Stainless steel food bowls are tucked away under the sink and slide out for mealtimes. A dog bed, outfitted in blue and white houndstooth, provides a cozy nook for furry family members to relax and take a nap.
Sophisticated gray cabinetry and clever nooks offer ample space for cleaning supplies and pet-friendly amenities in the laundry room of the HGTV Smart Home 2014. An undermount sink and white countertops are stylish and hard-working, making any household chores a breeze.
Once a non-functional laundry room, this space was transformed into a spacious spa-like master bathroom on HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother. A dual-sink vanity, toilet and shower were installed, along with stylish hardwood-like vinyl flooring.
With an oversized sink, faucet with hand shower and tile surround, the handy dog-washing station in the laundry room offers an additional washing area perfect for pets. The well-placed cabinets and drawers around the dog-washing station can be used to store pet sweaters, treats, toys and more.
Mix equal parts unpasteurized ACV and water in a clean spray bottle. Use this mixture to cut through grease, clean up grime and wipe out bacteria. The smell disappears as the vinegar evaporates. This cleaner is ideal for stove tops, counters, sinks and laundry room surfaces. It’s great for cleaning up metal tea kettles and the plastic touch pad on microwave and stove control panels. It also makes cleaning the inside of a microwave super easy. Spritz it inside the microwave on all surfaces, heat for 25 seconds, and wipe with a paper towel.
A small kitchen cannot accommodate homework, mail storage, laundry duties and recipe hunting. Unless you don't cook at all, the small kitchen's main chore is meal prep. So focus first on function, making sure you have the appliances and work areas you need. You may be able to save a bit of space by using scaled-down or innovative appliances, including refrigerator and freezer drawers and pint-sized microwaves, stoves (some with just two burners) and single sinks. If workspace is at a premium, consider a small-scale island or a counter-topped cart that can be rolled into a closet when not in use.
