Laundry Room that needs a counter and more storage!

I wanted to share a laundry room that I just redid. This home is beautiful and the homeowner had lots of things to store. The laundry room did not work for them at all. The storage was too open, there was no area for hanging so the original homeowners hung the rod on the left and the storage they did have didn't maximize the height of this room. You can't quite see to the ceiling but there is a lot of room above the cabinet.

Look at the space they have now! These cabinets give her so much storage that when they were first installed, she was worried they were too big. Seeing them so deep and so high was not at all what she was used to! Once it was done and she was able to use this space, she loved how much storage she had! This area is hard to photograph but here's another where you can see how I wrapped the washer and dryer with trim that matches the cabinets. She has a rod to hang clothes and still space to fold and stack. The cabinets all are increased in depth to maximize space and allow many serving pieces to fit up high.
She no longer cringes when the door is open and can be proud of her laundry area which is now gorgeous like the rest of her home!

That looks wonderful. My laundry area is behind folding doors in the kitchen so this would be a great solution. Ah well, someday we'll get to that. I'm planning to have my counter tops done first. I just don't know what I want yet.

Good share!!!

OMG - fate... I was meant to read your blog. I recently had cabinet installed in my laundry room but it still doesn't look finished. The counter top is what I need to add (duh).
Our floorplan stinks in that when people come in from the garage they come through the laundry room in come in the house. I am so tired of worrying about wether or not my underwear is laying on top of the washerin full view! And, of course, EVERYONE comes in through the garage. I can't even remember the last time someone used the front door.
I'll send you the before and after! Thanks for the INSPIRATION!
