No built-in cabinets? No problem. Ikea's Algot adjustable mounted storage lets you install the features you need without a contractor. After you attach vertical rails to the wall, the shelves and drying rack easily fit into place — and you can always add more.
Modern lighting and plenty of high-end white laminate cabinetry and shelving create a functional and beautiful master closet in this transitional home. Soft teal walls give a nod to the home's waterfront setting. A large island illuminated by a Flos pendant lamp offers plenty of storage.
Green Dining Room Uses Extra Space for a Butler's Pantry
A mini butler's pantry adjacent to this dining room provides just enough space for meal staging and overflow flotsam. It also takes advantage of an odd cranny that might have gone to waste with built-in cabinetry and counter space.
In this custom-designed master closet, high-end white laminate cabinetry and shelving is crisp and clean against glossy ebonized hardwood floors. Teal walls give a nod to the home's waterfront locale. A Flos pendant illuminates the island and brings one more modern touch to the transitional space.
Stylish and Functional Laundry Room with Plenty of Storage
This laundry room is both stylish and functional. The front loading machines allow for a folding station to be built on top of them, giving the homeowner plenty of useful space, while simple, green cabinets offer plenty of storage. Between the cabinets and the folding station, green patterned wallpaper has been added to give texture to the space, while the blue laundry basket adds a pop of stylish color.
Better believe utilitarian spaces can be incredibly chic. Pale green accents are fresh companions to this laundry room's crisp white walls and cabinets. Even the stainless steel washer and dryer feel like a part of the decor.
Tasked with fitting a washer and two dryers into this slim laundry room, designer RaeLynn Callaway of Classically Yours Interiors had limited space to add storage. She configured the cabinets to make the most of every inch, including open niches for bins and baskets. She also paid special attention to aesthetics, with lively green paint and corner cabinets that house art and accents. "I have realized that if you have a 'happy' laundry room you have a happy laundry person," Callaway says. Fun colors, cabinet hardware, flooring patterns and decor can really make a difference."
Laundry Room With Green Walls, White Cabinets and Storage Bench
Laundry is such a bore -- why not cheer up your washing space with a splash of vibrant color? The green against the white cabinets creates an extra air of clean. A nearby storage bench doubles as a place to fold fresh clothes and linens.
"Our client was a lovely retired grandmother looking for a space to do projects with her grandchildren," says designer Tritia Gustine of Beach Bungalow Designs. "We added fun colors like yellow, orange and green to brighten up the once-dark garage make it a welcoming kid fun zone."
