Because this laundry area sits between a master bedroom and an art studio, the design team at Crystal Kitchen Center wanted to make it accessible and functional for both purposes. The stained-glass window, backlit by a skylight, serves as an art piece and makes the room feel more expansive. The room is small, so a stackable washer and dryer help to conserve square footage. A staircase bump-out creates a spot for laundry baskets as well as a hanging rod, and a shelf over the sink acts as a handy supply station.

Use wood stain to add to the aged look — darker stain will show the 'distressed' marks better. Use a rag to rub the stain into the recessed areas, then remove excess stain with the same rag, wiping in the direction of the wood grain. Allow to dry completely before proceeding.
