This may be a hard-working laundry room, but it feels anything like one. HGTV fan MrPeabody prevents a pure "utility" atmosphere by integrating the home's rustic architecture, wooden ceiling beams and warm pendant lighting.
Cottage Laundry Room With Yellow Built-In Shelving
Mesh cabinet doors allow yellow shelves to show through and brighten this cottage-inspired laundry room. A fabric skirt conceals the washer and dryer, while concrete-cast plank flooring mirrors the reclaimed wood used on the ceiling.
Cottage Laundry Room With Yellow Trellis Wallpaper
Although a centerpiece in its own right, a stunning mini farmhouse sink fits right into the cottage look of the laundry room. With its wood frame and rivet accents, the unique sink adds functionality to this small, colorful space.
Cottage Laundry Room With Yellow Trellis Wallpaper and Mesh Cabinets
A vintage wooden ironing board, lady pin cushion and gold-handled scissors add to the quirky vibe of the laundry room while use of circular saw mill grooved wood countertop conceals the washer and dryer beneath. Metal mesh cabinets add to the functionality of the small space by providing easy to search shelving and allowing for greater pops of color. The trellis wallpaper adds pattern and matches the yellow interior of the cabinets.
Storage is essential in any home but can be even more crucial in a laundry room. Designer Sarah Richardson doesn't want to take away from the floor space, so she designs the storage as close to the ceiling as possible. The shelved cabinets run horizontal above the washer/dryer unit and provide the perfect place to hold towels and other laundry essentials.
The laundry room at the 2011 HGTV Dream Home accommodates twin washers and dryers, plenty of cabinet storage and counter space to pretreat and fold laundry. Extra-large capacity washing machines and dryers feature quiet operation and sophisticated controls.
