Stackable stools and a hanging pot rack create extra space in this contemporary kitchen. The graphic lines of the glass tile backsplash are mirrored in the modern, glass fronted cabinets while the reclaimed wood table lends a rustic edge.
This homeowner longed for a laundry area but didn't have space to remodel an existing room. To the rescue: designer Giana Shorthouse of Terracotta Properties, who teamed up with a local cabinetmaker to create a custom kitchen laundry and storage room. Stackable appliances sit next to a closet that has pullout drawers as well as room to iron. Metal mesh door fronts allow moisture out and air to circulate, yet blend seamlessly with the look of the cabinetry.
This white and gray kitchen features a built-in laundry area with stackable washer and dryer units that allow more room for other kitchen appliances, like the wine refrigerator. A wire bin above the dryer is perfect for stowing away laundry essentials.
