Happy Monday Everyone!
I am thrilled to finally be able to share our beautiful new laundry room with all of you! We’ve been waiting for our amazing cabinet maker, George to install the last bit of cabinets and I’m happy to announce that as of last week everything is completed and gorgeous. This tiny space was an undertaking simply because it serves as not only our laundry room but as a wine room and entrance to the house and powder room as well.
To make this room look and feel as large as possible we decided to forego the normal sized washer/dryer units and instead settled on the smaller 24″ machines. Jeff and I barely filled our previous machines once Emma left for college anyways… It’s amazing how much more space we gained by making the move to the smaller units.
We decided to have George build a cabinet surround and drawer for the stackable washer/dryer units to rest on… This gave us extra storage above and below and kept the space looking custom, finished and clean. Best part, the panel surrounding the machines is removable for service options. Love that!
It was important to find a spot for Jeff’s new wine chiller and stacking our machines allowed us the opportunity to place the chiller where the washer used to sit. I love that our laundry room also serves as a wine room.
Doing the laundry is so much more fun with wine in hand. ;)
This space sits adjacent to my kitchen and it hosts the entrance to my powder room as well as the door entering from the garage so it was important for me that it not look utilitarian… rather I wanted it to have an air of elegance.
By including a special light from Lamps Plus and a few select home decor pieces I feel I’ve made this little room blend beautifully with the rest of the house. Everyone mentions how much they love this tiny space and I have to admit that now it’s one of my favorite rooms.
Crown molding and marble countertops are just a few of the details that complete the look. I feel it’s the attention to detail that can take any small ordinary space to another level.
Thanks so much for checking out our sweet new laundry room and remember… Every room can become a special place. Even with dirty laundry. ;)
